Titilayo Olurin found her passion for writing when she started scribbling short narratives in her school books as a child. It did not matter that she sometimes got punished for it, she wrote almost about anything on the side or bottom pages of her note books. Now, years later, she remains passionate about writing and has other means of conveying her thoughts besides note books. Her stories and articles have been published in newspapers as well as journals. Also, she has worked as an Arts and Culture reporter and currently works as a free lance writer. When the graduate of English is not writing, she keeps busy around the house. But she has some free time, most of which is spent reading novels, hanging out with family and friends, window shopping or just watching her favourite channel, Investigation Discovery. She is also interested in book readings and stage plays and attends them at the slightest chance she gets. Nicknamed Atiteh by her cousin, Olurin has observed to be true the Spanish proverb that “An ounce of blood is worth more than a pound of friendship” and thinks of her elder sister and twin as her best buddies. She considers such values as, honesty, dedication and loyalty, instilled in her by family, to be very important. Buchi Emecheta, Sefi Atta and Yvonne Vera, are some favourite writers of the young native of Ogun state who hopes to write a novel someday. Other aspirations include: starting a career in photography and learning how to drum. You can follow her on twitter @titilayo_olurin
