Author of romantic fiction set in Nigeria
Myne Whitman is a pen name I coined myself while still in secondary school and is a play on the transliterated words of my maiden name. I am quiet and laid-back but do like a good loud debate sometimes.

Three words for me, friendly, caring and fun-loving. I have been a teacher, NGO consultant, banker, skate-hire attendant, researcher and government worker.

After a postgrad degree and a few years in Edinburgh, I now live in Seattle with my husband. A Heart to Mend is my first novel.
Bragging rights
I survived boarding school in Nigeria :)
