Hi there, I’m Barakat and heres a little about me.

Based out of Lagos, I write fiction flavoured with African sounds, scenery and a teeny tiny amount of fantasy. I’m also an avid reader, a consummate introvert and the royal daydreamer. To date, I have written two books: The Surrogacy Deal and Arkaz – An Ancient African Adventure; of course, there’ll be more where those came from. A few of my works have appeared in The Fair Observer Journal, The Truth among others.

I hold a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science degree, both in Biochemistry. As passionate as I am about science, I have always considered writing to be my true calling, devouring one book after another from the time that I was a child.

I am happily married with twin sons and a pretty daughter. When I’m not writing, you’d find me cuddled with a book on a sofa, watching wild-life documentaries or doing what I love doing best – spending time with my family.

Now, that’s a little about me. How about I get to know you?
