Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Certainly, here’s a brief introduction:
I was born and raised in Nigeria, a country I hold dear to my heart. Currently, I reside in the USA, where I continue to explore my passions for writing, technology, and reading. While I have a deep appreciation for animals, I don’t have any pets at the moment.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
My fascination with books began at an early age, and I’ve been an avid reader ever since childhood. I started writing in my teenage years, gradually transitioning from writing poetry and short stories to pursuing longer-form writing projects.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I have a diverse range of favorite authors, including Chinua Achebe, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, George Orwell, and Octavia E. Butler. I particularly enjoy reading speculative fiction, as it aligns with my love for technology and culture. These authors, along with others, inspire me in my writing journey.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book, titled “Vain Shackles,” delves into the struggles and victories that shape our lives. It’s a reflection on the burdens we carry and the resilience within us. The book explores the idea that even in the face of adversity, there’s remarkable strength and potential for triumph. It’s a celebration of the human spirit’s ability to break free from the chains of hardship and emerge stronger.
