Johns Hopkins University Junior Publishes Her First Novel

kanmogneMarlene Kanmogne, a junior at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, is majoring in neuroscience. She hope one day to be a physician. A native of Cameroon, Kanmogne is also active in the African Students Association on campus.

KanmgneBookDespite a busy academic schedule, Kanmogne also finds time to write. She recently published Mind Wanderer (Solstice Press, 2014), a 305-page young adult novel. The book tells the story of a 15-year-old girl named Melissa who has the power to change things around her simply by using her mind.

The book is just the first part of a planned trilogy. “I still have dreams that further the story,” Kanmogne says, “and I know what Melissa will do. I see the path of her life, and I want to follow it. And that just keeps picking at me to the point where I have to put it down on paper.”
