My name is Michael Afenfia. I am a Nigerian, a writer, social commentator and public intellectual. I associate with everything good and exciting about Nigeria and humanity.

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 passion – my calling.

As I learnt more of myself, 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), Paxoid (2017) which I co-authored with my then 12-year-old son, and The Mechanics of Yenagoa (2020). 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 a member of the literati in Canada.
