ABOUT ME

The writer, who became an Engineer, who became an Investment Banker, who became a Fertility Spokesperson, who became…a writer.

I was one of those kids who loved writing, and by the time I got to High School, my soap-opera style novellas in foolscap notebooks were in high circulation amongst my classmates. Back then, I fancied myself creating the next best TV soapie after Ripples (did I just give away my age?), and I looked forward to the awesome life of being a writer one day.

But by the time I got into University, in between studying hard for my degree and enjoying Uni life, writing soon took a back seat. My Chemical Engineering degree was followed by a Masters in Finance & Management, after which I got a job with an Engineering company. Writing had become a thing of the past for me.

I remember running into an old friend from High School, and she remarked, “I can’t believe you no longer write. Your stories were so good”. My honest response to her was I didn’t even think I had it in me anymore. It was an early gift that life had taken away from me.

Or so I thought.
Life continued. I got married, had a career change from Engineering to Investment Banking, had kids and started an online community to support women struggling with infertility……..

And then it happened by accident.

In a bid to give members of my community something else to read for a change, I started writing short stories in diary format, to entertain them. Faith’s Pregnancy was the first, and this was published every other day. It was so well received that I proceeded to write another (Accidentally Knocked Up), and then before I knew it, these stories became so popular that they were attracting readers from outside our community. Then one day, one of our readers suggested we publish our stories on one of the online publishing platforms, and I guess the rest is history.

Today, I still work in corporate Nigeria which I still juggle with my role as a wife and mother of three gorgeous kids. Writing has once again become my passion, my outlet for telling stories about love, romance (I’m a hopeless romantic, which I’m sure you can already tell ) and the beautiful institution of marriage. I feel so blessed for all the stories God has given me the grace to share, and I look forward to sharing the very many ideas I still have dancing in my head. It’s almost like He’s making up for lost time 

As for why I write using a pseudonym, there’s no grand reason beyond that’s how I started and wanting to maintain consistency.

Here’s a bit of trivia. Two of my books are loosely based on my life. I’ll leave you to figure which ;-).
