About Sandra

Seyi Sandra David

Seyi Sandra David dabbled in writing from an early age. Publishers considered her first novel at thirteen too ‘grown-up’, but instead of that to dampen her spirit, she shrugged it off and completed high school. She promptly gained admission to study English language at the university. 

After her graduation, she got a job with the state’s local newspaper, ‘People’s Advocate’, where she rose through the ranks to the post of a senior correspondent attached to the State House of Assembly. Sandra has a master’s degree in Creative, Digital and Professional with a Merit award and distinction in most of her modules. With several years’ experience working in the print and digital industry, she reads and evaluates manuscripts, assesses their suitability for the imprint and commissions new titles. She is involved with a book project at every stage. 

Sandra is also a filmmaker. Her first documentary, ‘Chasing Humans’, is a poetic film aimed at changing the stereotypes and unconscious racial bias directed at young black men in London and the UK. The film premiere as one of the best films of the academic year at the London Mets Final Cuts film festival in June 2020. Sandra is the Publishing Director at Arrow Gate Publishing, an independent publisher based in London. Her Second documentary, ‘The Human Story’, premiered on YouTube in 2021.

A versatile writer, she wrote her first work of fiction, ‘The Impossible President,’ in 2004. David wrote the novel to highlight the perennial inequality between men and women worldwide.

The book, set in Nigeria, tells the story of an inexperienced young woman in a misogynistic and conservative society where men dominate every sphere of operations and women have no business running the country’s affairs. The plot details the struggle of the female protagonist, Sharon Nwosu, and her fight against corruption, terrorism and the tragedies that haunt her at every turn. The novel celebrates womanhood and the ability to dream big and work hard towards achieving it. The second edition of the book will be out before Christmas 2023.

Sandra David 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 change his life forever and the world. Published in 2007, Arrow Gate released the second edition in 2013.

Her latest work of fiction is a supernatural thriller titled ‘Cydonia: Rise of the fallen’, available wherever books are sold. Readers can buy directly here: https://arrowgatepublishing.com/store/. Readers can buy the Kindle and print editions on Amazon websites and other online retailers such as Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, Waterstones and WHSmith. The paperback and Kindle edition of her new short story, ‘Tales Of Five Lies’, is also available on Amazon websites.

” 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. The Vatican came under attack when a demonic bloodhound under the command of Tyrus, Lucifer’s son, went on a rampage. They left destruction on their trail.

As events unfolded 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 humanity. 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.

The novel is on sale worldwide.

    Hey Miss S. I don’t understand how anyone can’t see that history is repeating itself. And, why anyone hates any group of people for any danged reason, I’ll never understand. This is why individuality is so important to maintain. When we allow our media to group people into categories, they can pit them against one another. Sigh. I’m not sure what we do to get the world to WAKE UP.

    Anyway, it’s great that you are inspired to write two novels. Keep up the good work, and don’t worry about blogs. You’ll get to them when you get to them.

      I guess we need love in the world, there’s still acute shortages of it. Thanks for your kind words Lori, I’m going great with the novels although they seemed to demand my full attention at once!

      Have a great weekend and my love to all that is yours my friend!
      Blessings. 🙂
