SORT BY Relevancy
Recently, a new movement has risen. It's a call for more diverse books. It became known during the Book Expo where, from what I'm told, there was a startling lack of diverse books available.
Part of me thinks it’s about time.
During my journey to publish as a Christian author, I found myself floored by how many traditional publishing houses neglected to buy my book -- not because it wasn't a good product but because it has an interracial couple. One would think in the 21st century, this kind of attitude is archaic. Shouldn't we have arrived by now?
I guess not.
Join me as I talk about the need for diversity and Christian fiction. Our guest co-host is author Unoma Osiegbu-Nwankwor. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or you can download the WLUV Radio mobile app. Any way you can, join us.

All About Nigeria Lockley
Authors bios are usually plain old boring if you ask me and there is so much more to say or to be told than where I live and how many degrees I have. So, here’s the unauthorized bio. Here’s the stuff you want to know and don’t want to know about me.
My favorite color is blue. I like pralines ‘n’ cream ice cream. I’m on the church choir, but I really can’t sing. God bless my choir director and pastor. I was always a writer, but I wasn’t always into Christian Fiction. Poetry was actually my forte and my first love when it came to writing. I was born on a major holiday, which sucked as a kid, got progressively better as I grew up, and now it is just another day. I’ve always dreamed of becoming an author and now with confidence I can quote Matthew 6:33 which says that if we seek the kingdom of God first, and his righteousness, everything will be added unto us.
If you want to know more about me send in your questions and if they’re not on the wild side I’ll certainly entertain you. If you’re looking for the traditional author’s bio scroll way, way down on the bottom for the polished version. Want more of me, my antics, and my Jesus? Then join me on Facebook and on Instrgram at NewNigeria. See you in cyberspace and hopefully face-to-face someday soon.
