What I Write

What I Write

I tend to write fantasy and magical realism set in Nigeria or Nigeria-like worlds. I like exploring people: their identities and their relationships to each other as well as to the social systems that define them. I love food clothes and architecture so you’ll probably find a little of all three tucked in my work.

So far, I’ve been writing short stories, but I would like to explore longer work like novellas, novellettes and novels. Mostly, I just want to tell the weird stories that exist in my head and hope that someone out there likes them.

That is all.
