Seyi Sandra dabbled in writing from an early age. Publishers considered her first novel at 13 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.
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 around the world. The book, set in Nigeria, tells the story of an inexperienced young woman in a misogynistic and conservative society where men dominated every sphere of operations and women have no business running the affairs of the country. 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.
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 not only change his life forever but the world. Published in 2007, Arrow Gate released the second edition in 2013.
