As a young child, Tosin Coker developed a passion for literacy and writing, driven by her curiosity of what lay in the leaves of the books that kept her mother so enchanted. A foundation of reading and story telling established, she passionately embarked upon quenching her awakened thirst for books, fiction and non-fiction alike, ever-anticipating weekly visits to her local library with her beloved co-conspirator. It was her mother that acknowledged her predestined future as a writer, at least two decades before Tosin actively bore testimony to it herself, when in 2007 she penned her 1st novel, unwittingly becoming acclaimed as the first female, African British science fiction author.
Tosin has since been interviewed and featured as a leading expert in the genre of black science fiction including as a panelist in London Southbank's Africa in Science Fiction. Her work has also been featured in Litro Magazine #137 Future Fashions edition.
