She describes her new book WHITE PLACES, which was released on 3rd November 2015, as a composite novel on the lives of characters in major cities in the Nigeria. She disclosed her inspiration for writing as one which is drawn from the need to create awareness and reveal certain ills our society would rather relegate yet which destroys the lives of many.

On a general note, she believes when an individual picks up a literary work, he seeks entertainment but a good writer must maximize such opportunity while satisfying a quest for entertainment he must skillfully create awareness and impact morals which is the essence of literature.

“… when an individual picks up a literary work, he seeks entertainment but a good writer must maximize such opportunity while satisfying a quest for entertainment he must skillfully create awareness and impact morals.”

She asserts that white places was written in a novel style which sets it apart from other literary works and sheds more light on albinism, lesbianism and the other side of ‘city life’.

    Beautiful, classy, with sense of style, she matched her outfit with her lipstick, it also match with this page. Nice pair of eyes, I must say, it looks like she’s using a contact lens.
