Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Anambra State, Nigeria. Although along the line the man I was living with had to relocate to Benue State in the same Nigeria, so we moved together.
My growing up in those two places especially Anambra State greatly helped me to develop the passion to write stories. I had wonderful teachers then who would always encourage us to read stories and during special events in the school, we would be asked to act them. This I later found to be a great blessing to me because it wasn't long after that I started writing mine.
