Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Nigeria, born into a Christian home. My father was a man of God. I studied English and Literary studies, but always study the word of God. My inspiration and influence in writing is from the studies of the word of God;, preaching, teaching and meditating on the word of God.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was going through much marital difficulty while still in Nigeria. As I spent time with God in prayers, praises and worship, the Holy Spirit continued to release upon me various messages in form of books which were speaking solutions to my situations and which could be used to help others in need. Before then, I always slept with paper and pen because I always woke up with a word from God which usually comes upon me as a chapter of a book. I lost everything during the hard times in Nigeria. But when I came over to the USA in 1996, I started over with my first book: How Do We Invest In Our Children?
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind The Heartbeat of God: Salvation of Lost Souls is this: during a trip to Dallas Texas for a conference in June 2009, my flight was continually delayed at Philadelphia airport where we had our first stop from Washington Dulles Airport. Just as my flight was continually delayed even up to six hours at the airport, many people had the same experience with their various flights. The airport was full of bored people who were continually waiting for too many hours. Many buried their heads on the little games on their phones, some reading any type of papers they could pick up to read at the airport. the word of God said that when the Lord Jesus saw that the crowd were like sheep without shepherd, He had compassion on them. I decided to share the word with some people and also tried distributing gospel tracts to them. But almost everyone was rejecting the word of God. Only very few people responded positively. I groaned in pains on how mankind treat the name of our Lord Jesus with so much contempt, the only name the LORD God provided for the salvation of man's soul. I began to feel the heart of God as the reality of the situation of man stared me on the face. If any of the planes crashes, this multitude that are rejecting the Lord Jesus will perish in the lake of fire, forever. At the gates of Hell, they will realize that they just rejected the only name that could save them from Hell, then it would be too late. The Lord Jesus christ is the most rejected person on Earth, yet He is the only name given among men to be saved from eternal death. I felt the heart of God for mankind; the need for the Church to intercede for souls and invest more time and resources for the salvation of lost souls because, this is the heartbeat and the heart pain of God - salvation of lost souls.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy I have had in writing is that many lives have been changed through my inspirational writings. Many people have found Christ, families healed. many parents have been endued with wisdom and knowledge on how to raise godly and well balanced children. The positive impacts of my writings on people has been my greatest joy: touching and changing lives.
What do your fans mean to you?
I consider my fans the people that are being impacted for good through the messages of the word of God, I preach. Most of them are my spiritual children and God's sheep. Through my writings most of them are being mentored through the word of God. I love and appreciate them in Christ.
What are you working on next?
My next books is the establishment of God's Kingdom on Earth. It's titled: Rebuilding Zion: The Lord is There.
Who are your favorite authors?
People that have revelations of the word of God to save lives and equip and edify the Body of Christ.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Studying the word, reading some great books and spending time with God in prayers.
