I was born in London, England, United Kingdom, a vibrant and cosmopolitan City. The City of London offers diversity in culture, architecture, history and monarchy!
My father often reads to me as a baby. From then, I developed love for books and I often got the “aunties” at my Nursery School to read volumes of books to me at pre-school centres.
My inspiration for writing came from my mother who is a brilliant doctor and a great scientist, and a prolific writer in her own right. She is the Editor-in-Chief of various International Medical Journals. I admired her work ethic, her ability to focus in everything she does, and dedication to her work despite all challenges she had. She often wakes up very early in the mornings to do her writings and she does not stop until she completes the work. My Mum and Dad work and publish together as co-authors in certain areas of medical and healthcare issues.
My Dad has enormous energy for work. When we have gone to bed my Dad continued working in his study finishing about 2AM in the mornings sometimes. I learnt these important skills from them. I carried this early learning to my Primary School, where my performance puts me in the gifted and talented group. Due to my good progress I was put on the Writers' Guild Group at School where we wrote various stories.
My love for reading helped me to gain various recognitions, winning many prizes and certificates as a commendable reader and writer.
When my grandfather, Zephaniah was visiting our family he told me various interesting stories, which also included when he was a young soldier in the Second World War. He particularly liked the events involving King George VI and when they used to sing the British National Anthem of “God Save the King!" He loved watching Royal ceremonies and the pageantries, which also got me interested in the story about Royals.
As my mother is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Medicine (IJM), which is an official journal for the Association of Health Care Professionals (AHCP), my parents have always taken me to the Medical and Scientific Conferences of the AHCP since I was a baby. In these meetings I have the privilege of meeting the delegates in the conferences from all over the world and observed the presentations of the numerous research areas. I got fascinated by the scientific processes, and I developed interests in medicine, medical sciences and healthcare topics.
The AHCP Education Academy Centre entered me into the Academy's writing contests and I was encouraged to try and write professionally. Publishers considered my ongoing projects, and subsequently reviewed, and accepted my first four books for publication in 2006 and again in 2008. After these initial successes, I am able to spend more time at my desk writing more books, and undertaking further projects.
For the second and third editions of the books in 2010 and 2011, I spent some time during my summer holidays updating the books. The fourth editions of my books were released in 2015. At the moment I am working on the fifth editions of the books, which are due to be released from October 2021.
I am also working on more medical and scientific topics for my next set of books, and some medical, surgical, infectious diseases, neurosurgical matters, public health, epidemiological and general healthcare books, which are scheduled to be published in 2022 and 2023.
I am currently undertaking my higher Doctor of Medicine Degree studies, and higher research studies.
My life as an author and medical writer is very rewarding and enjoyable!
