I’m one of those guys that love creating aura in contemporary suspense and thrillers.
It may make an interesting autobiography that my mother bought my first graphic novel Black Panther at a very young age. It was also an explosion to read a diverse number: Judge Dread; Slaine; ABC Warriors, Rogue Trooper, Bad Company etc. It wouldn’t end there as I took up role-playing game novels too my favourite one was Cavern of the Snow-Witch — I remember my grandmother warning me that I would become a nobody if I continue wasting my leisure than becoming a paperboy!
At the same time, I’d an opportunity at school in designing a comic-strip of a mysterious superhero that wore slick Ray Ban glasses. I completed a page but went back to reading graphic novels and role-playing. In my late teens, I’d abandoned it all to pursue my heart’s desire to go night-clubbing up and down the country.
When wisdom shone upon my face, I took up the novelty to complete my first book project: Earth & Mars. Of course, it was a side-job to do story-writing. I use the term that wisdom shone upon my face after I’ve read reference books on the real Black Panther. It made me see the difference between the real and the unreal worlds. I took on a lot of different topics too: Age of Enlightenment; the etymology of Latin and Greek words in the English language; Roman and Greek mythologies, and Plato. Oh yes, not forgetting the English and Italian Renaissance.
As a self-publishing author, I write genres in thrillers and suspense so take on the roar and the journey like no other person — in the jungle!
