I am a writer, editor, and unrepentant dog person living in Toronto, Canada. I am non-fiction editor of Anathema Magazine and co-founder of Omenana, a magazine of African speculative fiction, and the former chief spokesperson for the African Speculative Fiction Society.
I'm also a communications consultant with nearly 10 years of experience crafting strategic communications for multi-national non-profits across the world. My clients include: WE Charity International, ActionAid Nigeria, The BBC World Trust, and the University of Sussex's Institute for Development Studies.
I have a masters degree in journalism from Syracuse University and I've worked as a reporter and online editor in Nigeria and the United States. I was also a senior editor for Cassava Republic Press, one of the leading independent publishers in Africa.
I'm a 2014 veteran of the Clarion West Writers Workshop, which I attended as the recipient of the Octavia E. Butler Scholarship. My writing has been featured in several anthologies and magazines, including Uncanny magazine, Strange Horizons, The Kalahari Review, and Brittle Paper.
And I've been nominated for the British Science Fiction Awards, the Nommo Awards for African Speculative Fiction, and the Short Story Day Africa Award.
