Growing up in Nigeria as the last child of a family of eleven, life was tough, but that didn't stop or disturb my precocious interest in reading. As a kid, I used to read anything, from newspapers to textbooks and especially novels, which, of course, were really above my standard then, but that interest in reading gave birth to the writing zeal in me which unfortunately was almost truncated by the hardship I had to go through in the country.
I attended grammar school and ICE, Benin and left Nigeria in my late twenties for Europe. In England I pursued writing and took creative writing courses.
I love the mythical tales, told to most children in Africa by their mothers, usually under the moon and stars.
The Pot of Life grew from that tradition and is a new tale for children and young adults.
