'Nonso John


Born to Nigerian parents in the Nigerian capital city of Abuja, 'Nonso John is a Thriller writer who loves to read and write anything between suspense, mystery, and detective thrillers with a little romance.

His Sunday School teacher taught him God wrote the Bible, so at age six he figured God also wrote the first novel he ever read - James Hadley Chase's No Orchid for Miss Blandish.
So, aged six, 'Nonso decided to be the very first man to write a novel, and with a borrowed pencil, and a new 20-leaf book, he launched a career .

First Human Writer!

Sadly, someone had beaten him to the "First man to publish a novel" prize.
But of course, 'Nonso "...would never trade those early dreams for anything in the world!"
