About Emem Uko:
Emem Uko, whose first name means "peace" in Annang, a dialect of Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, was born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Emem developed a love for storybooks and writing at an early age and blames it on her parents' decision to buy her books instead of candy. During her master's program, Emem began a blog, Z and S, as a hobby and as a way to clear her head from the stress of school life. She started writing her first book without plans to publish it. Thanks to a nosey friend, Emem ended up publishing her first Young Adult (YA) novel. She has published several fictional books ranging from YA to contemporary romance and doesn't have plans to stop anytime soon.
What inspires you to write?
I'm inspired by the everyday people and the happenings in their lives. Sometimes, my observations on a train ride are enough to get inspired and write a juicy story.
