Nigeria, West-Africa!!! Why me???

"What's the big deal?" You ask from the side or your mouth, not letting go of the Nintendo cruiser you clutch in your hands.



Well, the big deal is that my parents panicked and catapulted us from the our lovely home in San Francisco to the middle of nowhere in Owasso, Oklahoma. Major downer!



You sip from your soda can. "I still don't get it," you mutter, slurping the drink around in your mouth, "so you relocated to the mid-lands,… Continue

Jeez! How was I to know???

You’ve been waiting to hear what I did to merit a punishment as extreme as boarding school in AFRICA of all places. Okay, I’m totally gonna tell you. But bear in mind that this happened a long time ago, like when I was twelve.



At that time, I guess I must have been a really frustrated kid, full of angst and bitterness at the failing relationship between my parents.

How was I to know, at that time, that trying to be a punk was not the best of solutions to an impending family…

Whaddya know? Meet my family...

So, I am the only child in my family–can’t say whether this is good or bad, but that’s just the way it is.



My dad’s name is Richard, and like I said before, he is a physician. He’s really tall (like, above six feet), dark and handsome. When people meet him these days, they keep saying he looks like Barack Obama!!! Lol!!! I guess they’re kinda right, after all, my dad, like our dear Mr. President, is a half-breed too. His dad (my grandfather) is from somewhere in Anambra State,… Continue

Stuffs you wanna know...

About Me...



Umm…yeah, I’m sure it’s no secret anymore that I was born in San Francisco, in August of 1995. That should make me like what…? Yep, 13 years old as of 2008 when I featured in the novel, FEDDIE GIRL.



Being from California and all, you all would think that I’m all flashy, bitchy, snooty and bratty, right? Well, you’re right… Okay, no, I used to be like a total bitch before I went to school in Nigeria. I had like a ‘don’t mess with me’ attitude which got… Continue

Hi, welcome to my world!

(From the Feddie Girl Blogs. Copyright, April 2009 http://bernardbooks.com)



My name is Carlotta Ikedi, better known as Feddie Girl. I am the major character in the FEDDIE GIRL novel by Nona David.



I was born and bred in San Francisco, California, USA, where I spent the first twelve years of my life. Right after my twelfth birthday, my parents thought it would be a good idea to relocate to Owasso, Oklohoma. Dumb, right? I thought so… Continue

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi, Joan! Good to meet you. *nods* Achebe was my first introduction to international literature (actually, this course was). Definitely interested in reading more. I have been writing more than reading lately but I will keep those in mind, thanks!

Hi Joan. As you can probably tell I'm new at this blogging game. However, I have been a book addict, well for too many years. It is so nice to read about other people who share my love for the printed page. I'm enjoy reading any kind of literature. Besides, the Godfather, which I have read at least three times, do you have any other favourites you could pass on. Thanks.

Hi Joan! What a great marketing idea- Freddie Girl Blog. I visited it and enjoyed reading thru it. I do reviews on my blog and this sounds like something I would enjoy reading- if you are releasing any ARC's for this I would love one and would post a review at a time you think would be appropriate. Here's a link to a review I did a while back on Chris Cleaves Little Bee and here is a link to my blog:
Chick with Books In any case I wish you luck with your promo! The books sounds fun. Take Care, Suzanne
