Life Goals: Tour Du Mont Blanc, interstellar space travel, immortality, godhood...

My native name is Emeka, and I write African-themed fantasy & sci-fi stories

I am Nigerian, a Writers of the Future winner, and a runner-up in the Writers Bureau's Writer of the Year award 2017.

My short stories have appeared, or are forthcoming, in Writers of the Future Volume #33, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Future Science Fiction Digest, Galaxy's Edge, Future Affairs Administration, Deep Magic, and elsewhere. My poems have appeared in three The Literary Hatchet issues, and I hope to portray the peculiar beauty of Nigerian cultures through my writing.

When I am not writing, I travel across Nigeria, visiting the country’s many historic sites and communities to experience their diverse cultures and traditions first-hand, and when I write, this rich cultural heritage becomes the heart of my prose.
