Who is this Curious Chido?
Hi! I’m Chido Muchemwa and I am a writer. I graduated with a BA in English and French from the University of North Texas and I have an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the University of Wyoming. . My dream is to be published novelist. I mostly write creative nonfiction, but I also write fiction.
I was born and raised in Zimbabwe, but I’m now based in Texas. I love languages. I speak Shona, English and French and the odd Spanish phrase. I have also been rather unsuccessfully trying to teach myself Portuguese for the last few months. I’m a huge cricket fan. I absolutely adore the South African Cricket team, so don’t be surprised if you see the odd cricket post.
Things that make me smile: going to the library, riding the train, Westlife and cupcakes
Things that make me cry: Heart and Souls, watching the Proteas lose and being this far from home
Favorite writers: Jamaica Kincaid, Terry Pratchett and Maeve Binchy
Favorite books: Les Misérables, Lord of the Rings, Persuasion, Anthills of the Savannah, Thud!
