Twenty-One Days... a novel

After several months of writing, sleepless weekends of "writathons," and a visit to the hospital for severe backache, my latest work is done!!!

"Twenty-One Days" is a realistic fiction novel about life in an NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) orientation camp in Lagos, Nigeria. It talks about a young Nigerian girl who returns to Nigeria from the UK after many years to sign up for the programme and serve her country.

Experiences in Nigeria as a whole leave her doubting her decision to come back for the programme and even come back to Nigeria at all, but after spending barely two weeks in camp, she realised that the NYSC programme had more to offer her than she thought.

Book Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Book description:

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
