About Seyi Sandra

DSC_0013 (2)

Born in Nigeria on October 14, 1975, Seyi Sandra began dabbling into writing from an early age. Her first novel at the age of 13 was considered too ‘grown up’ by publishers but instead of that to dampen her spirit, she shrugged it off and completed her secondary school and she was promptly admitted to the University of Ilorin where she studied English Language.

At the completion of her degree, she got a job with the state’s local newspaper, ”People’s Advocate” where she quickly rose through the ranks to the post of a senior correspondent attached to the state house of assembly.

She is the bestselling author of The Impossible President” the novel gripped readers like storm in 2002 and it was released by Regency publishers.

The novel explores the possibility of a woman becoming the first female president in a country like Nigeria where men have failed woefully and politicians cannot be trusted due to their corruption and greed, a country that relegates women to the background when it comes to governance. It’s a novel which celebrates womanhood and the ability to dream big and work hard towards achieving it.

She has established herself as a literary force with the publication of ”The Feet Of Darkness,” the novel sheds light on the struggles of a British scientist who finds himself embroiled in a plot that will not only change his life forever but the world as a whole, it was published in UK in 2007.

However, the second edition is now out, it was published by Arrow Gate Publishing.  The kindle and print editions can be purchased on Amazon websites and other online retailers such as Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, Waterstones etc. Whsmith recently list her books in their bookstores.

The Paperback and Kindle Edition of her new book, a short story, ”Tales Of Five Lies” is out now and can be purchased on Amazon websites.

However this link can take you directly to buy the book.


Her latest work of fiction, a supernatural thriller, aptly titled,  ‘Cydonia: Rise of the fallen,’ was released by Arrow Gate Publishing in December 2013. Below is the blurb:


”A mere thirty days…

…is what ex priest, Aaron Cohen has to stop a devastating attack on earth from elusive and ruthless forces but events soon took an alarming turn for the worse.The Vatican came under attack when a demonic bloodhound under the command of Tyrus, Lucifer’s son, went on rampage. They left destruction on their trail.

As events unfold with alarming speed, Aaron Cohen’s life spiralled out of control, chased by forces beyond human comprehension; he embarked on an adventure to protect the Ark of the Covenant and the stones of fire from brutal forces intent on annihilating the human race.

Set against an extraordinary and enigmatic church of St Mary, Axum in Ethiopia, Aaron fought with demons, escaped assassins’ bullets and every attempt to halt impending doom seemed slimmer than ever.

The novel is on sale worldwide.

Seyi is a columnist for ”Black Heritage Today,” a London-based magazine, and regularly blogs for other online magazines.

    What an interesting blog! But .. I am biased already, reading about Nigeria … you see, I grew up in Nigeria (left in 1979; my parents left in 1980), so Nigeria holds a place in my heart. And yes, maybe it’s time for a woman president, to clean up house! Thanks for the like and follow!

    Dear Seyi

    I very much enjoyed your blog and will be checking out your books as soon as I get my hands on them. I want to say that I wish more young people would see how accomplished they can be, in which you are one of the most gracious models to use. The is very important specifically for young women during our time because of how the media, television, music industry, etc. puts so much emphasis on the body instead of the mind.

    I hope you can follow my blog. I write poetry and so forth. I did fill out the contact form so I hope you receive what I wrote. I had a question I was hoping you could help me with.

    Thank you so much for opening my eyes to fresh astounding work.


    • Seyi sandra says:

      Thank you so much for your kind comment Steven! I truly appreciate it.

      You’re right about the media, every young girl wanted to be in a reality show, or modelling and such lives are not as glittering as they appear on television.

      Thanks for your friendship. I am now following your blog, and would keep tabs on your posts!

      I would be thrilled if you can read my books, you can get them on Amazon.co.uk, you would soon find my titles in bookshops within weeks. Have a beautiful weekend Steven.
      Blessings. :)

    It’s so refreshing and comforting meeting all the wonderful writers I have so far, and I’m always a little more enthused when I come across a female writer;and in this case she’s also from my homeland Niaja.

    I’ll be stopping by often Seyi and thanks for liking the post on my girls :)

  41. I planned to publish my first novel at the age of 13, but instead, I decided to do it this year. I’m happy for you and your success in the writing world. I look forward to reading some of your novels when I get the chance. Remain strong and stay proud my sister!

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Thank you so much, it’s never to late to pursue your dreams, I never did publish at 13, I waited a decade or so later. I’m grateful for your kindness and would love it if you do get round to reading my books.
      Blessings. :)

      • I definitely will read at least one of your books in due time. I’m going down a similar path because it’s been about a decade for me as well. I’m just curious to see what kind of reaction my novel will bring to the table when it’s published.

      • Seyi sandra says:

        Put in the best you’ve got and that’s all that really matters, afterwards, you would earn your readers. I’ll look forward to you reading one of my books. I really appreciate your visit and do enjoy the rest of your week!
        Blessings. :)

      • I always do, there isn’t no other way to do it in my opinion. I will definitely share some feedback with you after I read one of your novels. Thanks a lot for the words of encouragement and enjoy your week as well.
