When I published my book Silk Threads, I discovered I had to have a blog…tweet…Facebook! I didn’t have a clue about any of them so I simply jumped in feet first. My writing blog, Frankie Kay became a bit of a mishmash.

I’ve decided to split off the photos I take of Zimbabwe and the silly little stories I often post with them, to this blog.

I’m still practicing my writing; this is more personal, than imaginative…

Frankie Kay is a pen name – the real ‘me’ is pretty boring, but having a persona is fun, different…if you want to find out more about me, please go to my blog Frankie Kay

Please have a look at my books.

    • I must make an admission here – I have no idea how to tweet. I follow other tweeters when they ask me to (I think) but that’s all I do other than delete the messages with strange icons when they appear in my inbox! I have an account, but don’t know how to use it! I’m not sure if I’m that happy with the blog – and other social media advertising, I find it very intrusive. I just want to get on with writing!

  1. Hi Frankie,

    I am writing a blog on a very happy time my sister and I stayed at Vumba Heights School/Hostel for Children. (This was in about 1959)
    I need an image or two of what the Forrest around us looked like and came across yours and wondered if you minded I used it and of course crediting the image with your name. I would also add your link to this site if you would like that.
    The image in question is under the Main Title
    Early morning in Murambinda…

    and has a small write up beneath being this:
    “Out walking in the Vumba, I spied that bright red dot clinging precariously to the side of a granite kopjie:”

    I fully respect and understand if you do not wish me to do so.

    I now have another site with WordPress and if you are interested here is the link and my Blogs will indicate the direction I’m taking with writing..

    Many thanks and warm regards and may I say you have a very intereting website with some lovely photos.


  2. Hi Frankie, I was born & grew up in Bulawayo. Left in 2001. I have been following your blog and Youtube channel for a couple of years now. Reminds me of home. I went Scout camping in the Matopos and went often to Maleme Dam for fishing. Miss the place.

    I have a website called Reaper (https://reaper.app) where people can make some money from photo blogs, but it’s not available in Zimbabwe (You can access the website but the payment provider doesn’t pay out to Zimababwe). It is available in 30 countries though, if you have an overseas passport+account.

    Do you ever take pictures of the city/people? I’m sure some people might find that interesting.

    • Hi Mark! Many thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I will have a look at the link you mention, I have an account in the UK and in SA and of course, PayPal! I do take photos of historic buildings, but Im a little reluctant to take photos of people without their permission and once I do, then its no longer candid, and Im hopeless at posed photos. My camera is particularly good at portraits, with several excellent presets and an excellent lens for it. I have been asked to do another wedding in December, so it will be interesting if the one I did at the end of February is a fluke.
