The first in a family of three daughters and a son, my name is Adaora Chinwe I. Ogunniyi and I was born in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria. With a family heritage in Anambra state, Eastern Nigeria, my childhood experienced extensive travels across the country and I attended schools in Kaduna, Benin and Enugu in the North, South and East respectively.
As a trained Biochemist with other Post-Graduate business certifications, I have over the last fifteen years, held corporate career roles in Human Capital Development and Customer Relationship Management. My unconventional disposition, coupled with my proximity to people of diverse backgrounds and cultures, enriches my love for fiction writing. I also write scripts for informal drama presentations in addition to owning a plethora of unpublished articles and short stories. My many travels within Africa and outside the continent has afforded me a happy, eventful and exciting life.
A loving wife, a mother of two adorable children, besides volunteering for writing assignments in my local church, I enjoy swimming, singing and trying out new food recipes.
