Tell us about your latest book:
My latest book is yet another dark offering from our lovely continent, Africa. Dead Corpse is another ghostly tale of revenge and unfinished business. When the only daughter of a powerful female witchdoctor is murdered, the grieving mother calls upon all the fearsome powers of her deity to exact a deadly vengeance on the people that betrayed and murdered her child for ritual magic, together with the cruel community that knew the terrible secret and never told.
First memory of reading horror:
I recall being around 12 years when I read my first horror book, an African ghost story book, The Palmwine Drinkard by Amos Tutuola. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of written horror, as against the oral moonlight ghostly tales I’d known prior to that.
Which 3 horror books do you keep returning to?
Amos Tutuola’s The Palmwine Drinkard
Stephen King’s Carrie
Otsuichi’s Summer, Fireworks, and my Corpse
