It’s that time again. Time to give you another look into the heart and mind of another Pepper Soup author. This time, it’s Pamela!
The one I call Cho. You can’t call her that, because you did not meet her on her on your 10th birthday. I did. Not you. Me.
She’s the one who has been my BFF since then.
We’ve been through high school (Presco/PNHS/Ugbekun), through university (UNIBEN, as roommates then flat mates), through boyfriends (remember the time we almost dated best friends, and then the time we dated best friends?)
We were at each other’s weddings (this is a big deal because we hate to leave our houses), and now our kids play together (when we manage to leave our respective houses).
We also used to read and write together. She was a year ahead of me, and she made Shakespeare palatable. We used to write spooky, haunted hostel stories and together we read copious amounts of Mills and Boons (4 a day for about 5 years. Do the math).
She also wrote all the action sequences in my yet to be (never will be) published teenage crime novel ‘Crack Case’. And if you ever read ‘Crack Case’, you’ll get to enjoy my favourite thing about Cho’s writing, it has movement. When a punch is thrown, your jaw hurts along with the character.
However, chances of you getting your hands on the Standard Exercise book with Crack Case scrawled across the cover are slim to none (more like zero, but there’s nothing wrong with a little hope). You can get your hands on Pepper Soup, and read her stories ‘A Day for Change’ and ‘Hot Pepper Soup’.
Anyway, I’ve said enough (or have I?). Check out her interview – Here’s Pamela!
