Kiru Taye & the Business of African Romance Fiction


February is the month of love or Afro love, so, we are highlighting Kiru Taye as a teller of love stories.

Kiru wanted to read ‘stories about Africans falling in love. When she couldn’t find those books, she decided to write the stories she wanted to read. Her stories are sensual, her characters are flawed, and sometimes she adds a dash of exciting suspense. Her debut novella, His Treasure won the Love Romance Café Book of the Year in 2011. The stories in her popular Essien series are international bestselling novels. She believes this is the time for African writers of pop/genre fiction which is why she founded the publishing firm Love Africa Press. She is a USA Today bestselling author and also a co-founder of Romance Writers of West Africa, a support organisation-for African romance writers.
