When did you first start writing?
What's the story behind your latest book?
This is a Guide book for visitors to Lagos who come to live and work there. It is based on my own personal experiences as a returnee after a long period abroad.

.....So this book is targeted not only at Europeans and other Africans who may be visiting Nigeria for the first time, but also to Expatriate Nigerians who may or may not have touched our soil in decades, and who definitely need a refresher course judging by my experience having returned to Lagos in 2010.
