Happy Black History

Happy Black History Month! It has been a while since I posted. Life has been busy and I have started writing again, a bit of historical fiction this time around, set in the 1800s, in pre-colonial Yoruba land. So, watch this space!


In the meantime, I found myself part of a sisterhood of Black women, privately fostered and raised by white families just like me. To say the experience has been surreal is an understatement. If you'd like to know more head on over to Thread Book's new webpage for an exclusive article.
