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 will be launched at the Crime Cymru Festival in Spring 2022.

‘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.
