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.

Do all your pending chores (I've had mental breakthroughs while washing the dishes), then come back to your writing with a refreshed mind. If you want to, you can skip the particular niggling bit of the story and work on something else. Once you get into the flow, you'll be fine!(less)

“Writers are professional eavesdroppers.”
Tolulope Popoola

“Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.”
Neil Gaiman, Dream Country

“A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.”
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”
Willa Cather, The Song of the Lark

“Writers are professional eavesdroppers.”

“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
