Editor, poet, and novelist, Unoma Azuah, is judging the Page Turner Book Award hoping to find authors who will take her on a roller coaster ride with their stories.
She is a Professor of English at Wiregrass Georgia Tech. Valdosta, GA, USA. Her research focus is on Queer theory, and her forthcoming book is entitled Wedged Between Man and God: Queer West African Women's Stories.
The prestigious Ms. Magazine describes her just released memoir, Embracing My Shadow: growing up a lesbian in Nigeria, as powerful.
She has published more than six books. Some of her writing awards include the Aidoo-Snyder award, Urban Spectrum award, Flora Nwapa/ Association of Nigerian Authors award, Leonard Trawick award and the Hellman/Hammett Human Rights award.
I want to go on a “roller coaster” ride with stories and then rest on a scale that balances spur and sagaciousness.
