About the Book

The Crown is a historical fiction written in memory of a students’ riot that actually took place in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, in 1987. The Crown portrays the story of two major characters, the principal and a teacher, who try to do their assigned roles to the best of their ability, but despite their struggles and successes, they will realize that certain responsibilities such as theirs can be full of trouble and danger. The Robe is the story of Brian, who from birth had been designated to be a celibate priest. As he matures into manhood, he questions his role, and he realizes that he would want marriage and a family. His individual attempts to step out of priesthood do not seem as simple and straightforward as he had planned.
