Born in Nigeria on October 14, 1975, Seyi Sandra began dabbling into writing from an early age.

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.
