I am a Nigerian-Canadian children's author. I am both trade and independently published.
Through my company, Jewels & Pearls Publishing Ltd., I aim to increase representation of African characters in North American children's books.
I live with my husband and five kids in Calgary, Alberta.

Weird things about me:
I frequently experience deja vu (my theory is that I dream about things before they happen)
I talk to myself all. the. time (I've been told it's a sign of intelligence - that's my story and I'm sticking with it)
I have mirror-touch synesthesia (it means basically if you touch your nose, I'll feel it too)
