in high school and is a play on the words of her maiden name. Personality-wise,
she is quiet and laid-back but does like a good loud debate sometimes. In three
words, she describes herself as friendly, caring and fun-loving. She has been a
teacher, NGO consultant, banker, skate-hire attendant, researcher and
government worker. After a postgrad degree and a few years in Edinburgh,
Scotland, she now lives in the United States. I was born and raised
in Enugu, Nigeria, where I spent most of my time, studying, reading and
daydreaming or climbing trees and playing with the boys. I have a Master’s
degree in Public Health Research but have chosen my childhood dream of spinning
stories. After a few years in Edinburgh, Scotland, I now live with my husband
in Seattle, USA. I write and blog full-time, and also volunteer as an ESL tutor
for a local charity. I critique with the Seattle Eastside Writers Meet-up and
I’m also a member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.
The Pacific Northwest of America is a great place to live in the summer but
during the drizzling winter rains, I find myself dreaming of long, hot,
Nigerian days and the red palm oil of Banga Soup. A self-confessed adrenaline
junkie, I love theme park rides and my wildest ride yet would be the Simpsons
at Universal studios, Hollywood. Or maybe it was that reverse bungee jump I did
in Scotland, hmm…lol.
…. about A Love Rekindled
When Efe Sagay receives a transfer to the branch of a prestigious hotel chain in the Nigerian capital, she accepts it, happy to return home to family after years in the United States. Also, Nigeria is a big place, right? There should be nothing about her new city, Abuja, to remind her of the heartbreak of her relationship with ex-fiancé, Kevwe Mukoro.
However, Efe is facing Kevwe across an office seven months later, swamped by emotions she’d thought were dead. When Kevwe claims he’s never stopped loving her, and asks why she abandoned him, Efe stomps off, incensed. It was the other way around!
But they are unable to stay away from each other, and buried desire flares. Ultimately, passion is no match for the bitter memories of broken promises. Efe and Kevwe have to resolve the traumatic events of the past before love can be rekindled.
