Summary

Walter Dinjos is Nigerian and a Writers of the Future winner. He loves singing and songwriting as much as he does fiction writing.

His speculative short stories are resident in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Deep Magic, Lamplight Magazine, and other literary magazines. His poems have appeared in three Literary Hatchet issues. And he hopes to portray the peculiar beauty of Nigerian cultures through his writing.

When he finds time away from his day job, he is plotting his science fantasy novel. Either that or he is exploring means (both scientific and magical) of attaining immortality. If you happen upon a medical remedy or a spell, please tweet him via @WalterDinjos.
