MEET EROTICA AUTHOR - NINA NDUBISI
Tell us about your family/background, your location:
I was born in the UK but spent my formative years in Nigeria. I am the first of 3 children of my mother. Unfortunately, I lost my mum at the tender age of 6. I am a qualified nurse and midwife but no longer practicing, rather I chose a career working with people with learning disabilities and mental health issues.
How and why did you decide to get published?
I jokingly started a story on Facebook. Every day I would leave a few lines leaving the readers captivated and in suspense making them want more, this went on for a couple of weeks before I was then to consider getting it published.
At first, I thought they were joking, until more people urged me to do it. I decided to contact a publishing company and despite the fact that the book is now being sold all over the world and now being produced into a movie I still think its all a joke and honestly cannot believe what has happened.
What genre do you write?
What is the story behind your book?
Unknown to Nicholas, his wife of eleven years has been having an affair with their pastor who also happens to be his cousin, although his wife is unaware of their blood ties.
On New Years day, after accidentally knocking over his wife’s handbag, Nicholas finds a note that sets off a chain of events.
Secrets, sex, betrayal and crazy revelations abound in this hot, fictional thriller.
If you write fiction; What’s the source of your inspiration? How much of YOU show up in your writing?
My first book was just written on the “spur of the moment”. I just sat in front of the computer and bashed away as it came to me. If you read the book you can see that I honestly did not know where the story was heading, hence the twists and turns in the story, which leaves the reader captivated and eager to find out what happens next.
Use one word/phrase to describe your book.
How have you found the writing process?
Hmmm *scratching head*, to put it simply I found it easy to write the first book, now I am in the process of writing the second book, I am finding it harder. The material is in my head, its just finding the time, as I am very busy promoting and marketing the first book. I just wish I could be whisked away to a dessert island where I can do nothing else but write.
Do you have a blog? What do you write about?
Yes I do.
I tend to have random thoughts and I just blog about them as they come to mind. Currently, I am on a journey to a “healthier me”. So recently, I have been blogging about my diet including my “highs and lows”.
What books are on your shelf at home?
Misery literature (true stories about people who were abused as children).
