Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and bred in the rugged city of Lagos, Nigeria, in West Africa.

My father was a Bishop of a local church in my community. I began to develop interest in the Bible at age twelve. However, I soon discovered that Christians didn't practice what they preached, especially the church leaders, like my father.

As I grew much older, with a great appetite for God's Word I began to verbally challenge religious authorities. And later, I discovered writing, that it has the potential of reaching more people than I can ever come in contact with. Ever since then, I've never looked back - I speak and write about anything at all.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing actively about a decade ago. Prior to that time, I would write for the sheer pleasure of it alone; I would just write about something important to me at that time, but then dump my manuscripts carelessly and even misplace them. My passiveness was greatly influenced by the fact that it was too expensive to publish a book in my country (it still is), besides, I doubted anybody would have an interest in my works. I later realized I was just being naive and underutilized - underproductive. I had nothing to lose if i write down my thoughts and I'm unable to publish them, I said to myself. so I simply began to put my thoughts together, until I was recently introduced to eBooks and self-publishing.
