Kenneth Igiri

Biography

The arts run in my family. Before I was ten, we were making our own original comic books and board games at home. I started writing when I was about twelve. My first significant piece was a twenty-something page story called The Bride-Price. Imaginative it was and at least my Dad was impressed and encouraged me. In my late teens to early twenties I wrote Njànsí, my first book. It was published almost ten years later.

My books tell stories from an African/Christian point of view and they are very original. I invite the reader to think with me and draw out the lessons himself/herself. I consider my books worth reading, enjoyable and meaningful. Feedback from readers has proven me right.

Writing for me is a hobby. My daytime job involves computers and a lot of data. I have worked in IT Service Management, Application Support and Database Administration. I find IT very interesting but often stressful. Writing for me is one of the media of escape, if you will, from the stress of that world.

I look forward to writing many more books. Ideas are brewing in my head and they will show up on the world's shelves sooner or later.
