Chioma Okereke

Born in Nigeria, Chioma Okereke grew up in London, studied law at UCL and has successfully applied those skills to winning domestic squabbles ever since. Her debut novel, Bitter Leaf, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize – Africa Best First Book, and her short story Trompette De La Mort received First Runner-Up of the inaugural Costa Short Story Award. As a self-labelled transethnic, she divides her time between the bustle of London, the hustle of Lagos, and the rustle of rural France.
