Hi, I'm C. M. OKONKWO
I'm a French speaking Nigerian author who grew up in Lagos and moved to France to study, where I obtained three fantastic degrees. I currently practice HR as a profession, but writing is my passion, which is fuelled by my love for travel and tourism, where I pull experiences and merge them with my limitless imagination.
My best genres are action-packed mystery, thriller, detective and suspense, but my writing goal is diversity, so I've also written erotica, romance and literary fiction, and I'm still exploring others like fantasy and sci-fi.
My stories/books have won contests and awards from Africa Book Club Short Story Competition to Indie Author Land best #50, to Wattpad, and I have also been a top 5 finalist for Quramo Writers' Prize.
I'm an active member of International Thriller Writers and the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA Lagos chapter), and part of my dream is to set up a Crime, Mystery and Suspense Writers' Club in Nigeria. I'm also the founder of Laybels UCL, a company that promotes literature and reading, and also helps people achieve their dream of becoming published authors.
Feel free to say hello. I can't wait to read from you!
