Since his early childhood, Joel Savage decided to be a film actor or a writer. So he wrote to “Nana Ama’s Advice” a columnist in one of the Ghanaian newspapers to show him the way. His parents are not rich to enroll him in an acting school in Hollywood or America, thus; he chose to be a writer because his father was a writer, journalist, and a documentary film producer.
He studied at Ebenezer Secondary School and Accra High School and later did journalism course at the Ghana Institute of Journalism in Accra, Ghana. Joel wrote for the Ghanaian Times, Daily Graphic and the Weekly Spectator in Accra, as a freelance journalist.
The writer who loves adventure and creativity is now a Belgian national and lives in Antwerp. A strong animal lover, he campaigns against animal cruelty, crime, child abuse, child trafficking, teenage pregnancy, and smoking.
