About this author

I'm a writer, blogger and lover of books and all things literature. I used to be an Accountant, until I rediscovered my love for writing in 2006 and became a full-time writer in 2008. I'm the creator and one of the writers for the fiction series and book, In My Dreams It Was Simpler.

My novel, "Nothing Comes Close" is a spin-off from the series and has just been published by Accomplish Press. I also write short stories, flash fiction, poems and articles for magazines, and I'm working on a collection of short stories and flash fiction.


Hello folks! Hope you've had a good week and you're looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Today I'm sharing an excerpt from "When You Let Go", a new book by Unoma Nwankwor. Enjoy!
