6 Questions For The Fearless Storyteller

… as published on @naijabooks, an Instagram page dedicated to Nigerian book news, reviews and author interviews

What is the inspiration behind your new book, ‘Because Home Is’?
A long time ago, I read a novel written by Faye Kellerman in which one of the characters said that “Everyone is either running away from or towards something.” So, people tend to run towards (their perception of) pleasure or away from (their perception of) pain. Everyone wants to feel safe in some way. And that's what you find at home – whether home is a person, place or thing. And it takes everyone a different amount of time and process to find, go to and function with(in) who or where or what they call home. It's a vocation or life calling, it's that relationship, it's that physical place where you are safe even if you're challenged to grow. It's the perfect symbol of “naked and unashamed”.

Omolola Mary Omosebi, author of The Beautiful Branch, speaks …

What inspired ‘The Beautiful Branch’?
God is the source of my inspiration for writing The Beautiful Branch. I believe strongly that He is the One who through His Spirit sensitised my heart and placed the burden for seeing women live balanced lives in me. I get agitated when I see women who have issues with successfully joggling their responsibilities without any aspect lagging behind or who refuse to live to their full potentials just because they are females. I just know that it is very possible to be a woman that fears God and be one who lives purposefully in all aspects of her life. I decided to write this book to pass that message across. As a matter of fact, I had an idea of what I wanted to write about and the book title seven years before I began writing it.
