The Oba’s Head

My short story, ‘The Oba’s Head’, will be published in a crime fiction anthology by Honno, the longest-standing independent women’s press in the UK. The anthology was published in April 2022. In June, I will join other writers from the anthology for readings and interviews at Cardiff Central Library.

‘The Oba’s Head’ is inspired by the true story of the Benin Bronzes, looted by British soldiers in 1897 from Benin City in present-day Nigeria. The concept for a novel-length version of the story was longlisted in the Adventures in Fiction New Voices Competition.
