Hi, my name is Azuka Thomson and I’m an author, wife, and passionate mom. I graduated from the University of Benin in Nigeria with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and later obtained a master’s degree from the University of Lagos. I’ve worked for the Ministry of Communications, the Nigerian Telecommunications PLC, and later as the principal partner of a consulting firm in Nigeria.
I relocated to Germany with my husband after I retired from the engineering practice. Now I write novels and have so far published Dark Patches, a social drama, and recently Wild Fantasy, a romance. My next social drama, Boomerang, will be released Summer 2015.
I love reading fiction – fantasy, thriller, romance, and drama. Oh yes, and I’m a sucker for happy endings. When reading a book, I completely lose myself in the story and love to emerge happy at the end; that must be why I favour fiction!
More than reading however, I enjoy talking and listening to people. Real life is often, not only stranger, but more interesting than fiction. And even more so if you’re a Nigerian, where nothing can beat ‘hot gis.t’
My first novel – Dark Patches is fiction but the drama is based on real life experiences and events.
The romance novel – Wild Fantasy, on the other hand, is a completely fictitious, feel-good story.
