O.L OBONNA was born in Lagos,
Nigeria. For as long as she can remember, she has always wanted to tell stories
about love and romance by creating and immersing readers in the romantic
adventures of fascinating characters. Her stories are a peek into her version
of the excitement, allure, and mystery of the age-old sentimental narrative of
love, which she so beautifully and intricately weaves together into a genuinely
fascinating read. When she’s not surrounding herself with words or reading a
romance novel, you can find her in the kitchen trying out new recipes or
painting with her children.
She lives in London and is happily
married with three children.
