Hi, I'm C. M. OKONKWO

I'm a French speaking Nigerian author who grew up in Lagos and moved to France to study, where I obtained three fantastic degrees. I currently practice HR as a profession, but writing is my passion, which is fuelled by my love for travel and tourism, where I pull experiences and merge them with my limitless imagination.

My best genres are action-packed mystery, thriller, detective and suspense, but my writing goal is diversity, so I've also written erotica, romance and literary fiction, and I'm still exploring others like fantasy and sci-fi.

My stories/books have won contests and awards from Africa Book Club Short Story Competition to Indie Author Land best #50, to Wattpad, and I have also been a top 5 finalist for Quram
