Smashwords Interview

Tell us about your Background ?
Ok. My name is Jerry King Nwobodo. I was born into the family of Mr. and Mrs. King Nwobodo. I was born in Benue State. In a place called Ighumale in Ado Local government Area. My dad is late. He was a business man. My mum is also a business woman.
They just relocated from Maiduguri, Bornu State to Benue State a few months before I was born
How was Life growing up like?
Life was better back then. I spent my early childhood in Makurdi. My dad was a strict disciplinarian, so was my mum. So you could imagine. There were many rules to follow and the cane followed each time you broke a rule. My dad thought me alot. He thought me to respect elders, to be humble and to have faith in God. He was a pastor at Deeper Life Bible Church in Bornu and Benue the late 80s and 90s. So you can imagine. Our family was a typical Christian family.
Everything was going smoothly before my dad died. I was eight years old when he died. We had to move into a smaller apartment but we learnt how to cope with the new situation. An my mum was awesome. She provided our needs. In fact she created a situation where we didn't feel the loss of our dad. Our education wasn't twarted, our daily needs were taken care of. You can imagine how it was possible for a woman who was a house wife before loosing her husband. It was just God that helped us.
