About 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!

C. M. Okonkwo got me there, just when i thought i could figure out the mystery behind the closed door myself, every chapter had a story to tell. So full of suspense and enthralling. Following the up-shot. Green light.

Absolutely loved and enjoyed Closed Door. It's captivating and one of those "I can't stop until I finish" books. Great plot; lots of surprises. Can't wait to read the sequel.
C.M. Okonkwo never disappoints.

Closed Door is a short story that I read basically in one sitting. It's fast paced, intriguing and an ingenious mystery with a revealing and surprising end. It leaves you curious to know what will happen next, with a good cliffhanger.

The family portrayed seems at most times to be dysfunctional, maybe it was the author's intention, in order to insert more intrigue and mystery into the story. The mother's apparent insensitivity to the situation and almost childlike behavior maybe clues into the development of a more psychological side for a follow up. I'm curious to find out what happens in the next installation. Overall, great imagination and plot.

Great! Great! Great! Just the way i like it. Well constructed suspense, reminds me of the likes of Dean Koontz, too intriguing to be a short story. A must read. Big thumbs up to the author.

It's a great short story, very intriguing for a short story, honestly. One cannot take their eyes off it for a second; truly captivating.

Good job C.M.

Closed door... I think this book should be a novel. Its hilarious too.. I wondered what sort of parents wouldn't trust their children so, but after that insight, I do not fault them.
Suspense was made for this author. C. M. Okonkwo handles this well! Now I'd be weary before opening a closed door!
