All Is Revealed

My name is Chibundu Onuzo. It's actually Imachibundu but everyone calls me Chibundu. Imachibundu is never used, not even when I am with trouble with my parents.

I'm the youngest of four. My parents are doctors, my oldest sister is a barrister, my oldest and only brother is a financier, my sister is an engineering student and I'm a History student at Kings College London.

I'm a Christian. I believe in God; I believe in John 3:16. I also believe that belief without actions is dead.

I sing. I play the piano. I write a blog in my spare time.

I'm 19 though not for long. A few months ago, the thought that this was my last teenage year filled me with dread. Now, I find it absurd that society has grouped thirteen year olds and nineteen year olds into the same category. I mean really. ;)

My novel, The Spider King's Daughter, is coming out Summer 2011, by God's grace. It will be published by Faber and Faber. I am agented by a very nice lady called Georgina Capel and my wonderful editor is Sarah Savitt.

So there. You now know everything.

Check out my announcement on The Bookseller if you want to.

  3. Hi, Chibundu, My name is Paul Ohia, an editor with THISDAY newspapers in Nigeria. I have just sent a message to you on facebook explaining the need to have you interviewed by our paper. I was happy to read what CNN wrote and wish to establish contact with you towards this interview. Congratulations.
