Short Bio

Suyi lives in Lagos, Nigeria, and writes mostly crime and speculative fiction, though he’d rather live in a shoo-away community elsewhere, surrounded by books, white chocolate and a force-field around his keyboard that repels all intruders.

He has published or has works forthcoming at Lightspeed, Nightmare, Apex, Mothership Zeta, Omenana, Jungle Jim, The Kalahari Review, Klorofyl Magazine and Wazi. His audio narration performances have appeared on Escape Pod and ShortSharpShot.

When he’s not writing, Suyi works as a Visual Designer. In-between, he plays piano, guitar, PS4, and searches for spaces to fit new bookshelves.
