Author has written 13 stories for Historical, General, Kids, Life, Romance, Essay, and Young Adult.

Originate from Nigeria. Born in Texas.

I have been writing some story or the other since I was five or six. I haven't written as much since high school, but I'm trying to get back into doing it more consistently. School makes it kind of difficult ... and I guess I'm a little straddled by the fear of rejection. Of not doing well. And so I'm at a crossroads of sorts ... unsure of what I really want. Or rather, knowing what I want, but unsure of how to achieve it.

The story closest to my heart, and therefore the hardest to write and in a somewhat hiatus status, is "Joy". I'm still really working out the tone of the whole story. Right now the title is sort of in the process of changing. I have it as "Joy Unborn" or "Unborn Joy", and I also thought of "Joy Enternal." One of my sisters things I can make it into like a trilogy or something. Basic summary: Amara and Stasi are best friends. Life has taken them down many roads, which has always brought them closer together. However, when the road to motherhood comes along, instead of it drawing the friends together, it threatens to rip them apart. Amara is 22, single, and has no desire to be a mother any time soon. Stasi is 23, happily married and glowing with joy at the prospect. From moments of resentment, sorrow, anger, disappointment and complacency, will God be able to lead them both to a place of joy?

Anyway, the others are just fun stuff I'm toying with and not really anything that has a fore-seeable end or any sort of plot or order to it. Or they are stuff I wrote a long time ago and decided to put on here as a sample of what I am capable of ... or maybe to mark some sort of growth in my writing.

Enjoy!

Being Black reviews
I can honestly say that I was never really aware of Black History Month until February of 1999. Being black, that is a very pitiful thing to admit, but it’s true. But I guess what I feel is what W.E.B DuBois described as twoness.

Untitled reviews
This is an old story I wrote when I was like 12. It's a kind of Corrie Ten BoonAnne Frank type story. It's about a girl and her friends in Nazi Germany and the journey they take as they seek the peace and happiness they long for since the war began.
