To what extent can you say your personality and or experience is reflected in your work?
Most authors will tell you that they are embedded in their work. This is the same for me. There is a small piece of me in all my characters.

5. Who are your publishers and how can you appraise them in relation to birthing your dream and adding value?
I am my own publisher. I use services from companies that offer them in terms of editing, printing, distribution, etc. But when it comes to the copyright of my work, and all aspects of the creativity like covers, timing, and marketing, I make all the decisions.

6. In 3 sentences, what is your message to the world through your romance writing?
First and foremost I wanted to write a story of love and finding oneself. I also felt that there were not were not enough romance novels set in contemporary Nigeria, and that I could do something to change that. Therefore, a lot of these themes in my novels are motivated by events or stories I’ve heard or read about in real life Nigeria of the last few years. The characters and issues dealt with in the book are therefore meant to be relevant for contemporary life and relationships. Again, I have always been intrigued by the principle of unconditional love and want to more people to come on
board.

7. Which author(s) have influenced your writings so far?
Authors like Buchi Emecheta, Nora Roberts and Danielle Steele are role models.

8. In what formats can we get your book? (here we mean whether print, audio, e-book, movie trailer et al)
Except for audio, my books can be found in all the other available formats. As well as paperback, the two are eBooks on Kindle, Nook, and the iBookstore. They are also mobile apps available across several platforms and app marketplaces. I also have their trailers on Youtube and other video platforms.
