Okay, I'm an active/dynamic thinker. I write because I want my writing to make a difference in the world, and not merely to be another Achebe, or Chimamanda. I believe (like Achebe did, as well) in the power of the story to determine the future of a people. Of course, if you don't know where you are coming from, you can forget about destination discussions, because you clearly don't have any. I do not have any published work to my name; on the net or off the net: nothing! So why am I here? What do I have to offer (the ultimate question). To put it as simply as possible, I'm here because I think writers are some of the smartest people in God's planet. It's not that writers are smart/brilliant people; it is that brilliant people are writers. I believed that then, and I believe that now (Vito Corleone). I joined hoping to be able to interact with some of the smartest and brilliantest ;) people in Nigeria. The world can starve me of mental and intellectual food, but I want to come to this spot and know that I have come home. I have a novel. I plan to publish it by April/June 2015. Wish me luck, and buy when you see it.:) Thanks folks. I hope I enjoy every minute of being on this platform. I love youu guys.

Making reading fun again
