In contemporary Africa where the literary art community is beginning to embrace various genres, established romance Author, Myne Whitman, whose books include “A Heart to Mend” and “A Love Rekindled”, and real name, Nkem Akinsoto, shares with WOMAN’S ESSENCE why she writes love.
Why do you write and who do you write for?
