My name is Michael Afenfia. I am a proud son of the Ijaw nation and a lover of Nigeria! Port Harcourt-cradled and Bayelsa-blooded, I associate with everything good and exciting about Nigeria.
Although I have a Law Degree from the Rivers State University of Science and Technology and an MBA from Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, writing has always been my calling, my passion – my life.
As I learnt more of myself and my calling, I garnered cherished experiences in Construction, Real Estate, Banking and Public Service.
So far, I have authored a number of critically acclaimed novels: When the Moon Caught Fire (2010), A Street Called Lonely (2011), Don’t Die on Wednesday (2014), and Paxoid which I co-authored with my 12-year-old son. I have also published a number of nonfiction writing, including a biography.
Between 2014 and 2016, I served as Chairman of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA) Bayelsa State Chapter and currently as a Patron of Yenagoa Book Club (YBC).
