About

BIO
Unoma Nwankwor writes Contemporary Multicultural/Black romances centered on African culture. Through her stories, readers are taken on a romantic adventure across Africa and its Diaspora. Faith, family, hope, and the rich culture of Africa are the foundation on which her stories are woven. Between the pages, she promises you humor, tight hugs, forehead kisses, and above all else, redemptive, sacrificial love.

Hailing from Akron, Ohio, Unoma is a first-generation Nigerian – American who spent her childhood in Atlanta, GA, and early adulthood in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria. Holding two degrees in Finance and Management, she is the recipient of the Nigerian Writer’ Award 2015 for Best Faith Fiction Writer. In 2017, she was short-listed for the Diaspora Writer of the Year. She was also a 2021 & 2022 nominee for the Building Readers Around Books Awards. A few years ago, she was named one of the 100 Most Influential Nigerian Writers Under 40.

Unoma wears numerous hats but the one she’s most proud of is, mother of two kids and wife to her film director husband. She juggles this with co-running her entertainment company KevStel Productions & Publications and encouraging Christian Entrepreneurs through her Expectant Living platform.
Her readers are in love with her unique way of telling stories that capture the essence of her present home base in the USA and her Nigerian culture. You can catch her writing from the comfort of her bedroom nook with a pack of pepperoni slices and a cup of java.

  1. Love your books especially the Danjumas, always looking forward to reading their stories especially in the evenings after busy days at the office during the week

    1. Hi Bim, thank you very much. I’m glad you love the Danjumas. So many others do as well. I am releasing a Christmas story with them titled Mixed Tidings. It releases 11/26. You can preorder it now

  2. I don’t know how I stumbled on your site, but it’s an exciting experience. I can’t believe I found you, this is all I ever wanted and to think that your writings are African Christian romance. GOD BLESS YOU
