In the second of a series of interviews with our partners, we ask local indie author, Leke Apena, about his writing process.

Leke is based in south London where we're also located, and Diverse was one of the first stockists of his debut novel, A Prophet Who Loved Her, which was published in 2020. He writes unconventional, challenging and entertaining stories about the modern Black British experience because he feels there aren't enough well-written stories about complex, funny and multifaceted Black British characters. He is on a mission to change that.

His recently published second book, Flavours Of Black, was longlisted for the Mo Siewcharran Prize 2021.
