Kiru Taye_Bio Photo.jpg



Kiru Taye wanted to read stories about Africans falling in love. When she couldn’t find those books, she decided to write the stories she wanted to read. Her stories are sensual, her characters are flawed, and sometimes she adds a dash of exciting suspense.


Her debut novella, His Treasure won the Love Romance Café Book of the Year in 2011. The stories in her popular Essien series are international bestselling novels.


She believes this is the time for African writers of pop/genre fiction which is why she founded the publishing firm Love Africa Press. She is a USA Today bestselling author and also a co-founder of Romance Writers of West Africa, a support organisation for African romance writers.




Unoma Nwankwor writes Sweet Contemporary Multicultural/Black romances centered on African culture. Through her stories, readers are taken on a romantic adventure across Africa and its Diaspora. Faith, family, hope, and the rich culture of Africa are the foundation on which her stories are woven. Between the pages, she promises you humor, tight hugs, forehead kisses, and above all else, redemptive, sacrificial love.

She is the recipient of the Nigerian Writer’ Award 2015 for Best Faith Fiction Writer. In 2017, she was short-listed for the Diaspora Writer of the Year. She was also a 2021 & 2022 nominee for the Building Readers Around Books Awards. 

Her readers are in love with her unique way of telling stories that capture the essence of her present home base in the USA and her Nigerian culture. She like to say she writes from an American born, Nigerian molded, American living perspective. You can catch her writing from the comfort of her bedroom nook with a pack of pepperoni slices and a cup of java.
