Creating mirrors and windows...

With Words!



Tola Okogwu is a British-Nigerian Children's Author and Hair Care Educator. Born in Nigeria but raised in London, she holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism. She spent some years exploring the world of blogging, haircare and freelance writing before returning to her first love...fiction.

Her self-published picture book series, DADDY DO MY HAIR is a firm family favourite. Tola also writes as Lola Morayo and the first book under this pen name, AZIZA'S SECRET FAIRY DOOR will be published by Pan Macmillan in summer 2021. Tola lives in Kent, England with her husband and two daughters. An avid reader and lover of music, she’s also a sucker for melted cheese.

Tola is represented by Claire Wilson at RCW .

“My hope is to create ‘mirrors and windows’ through my writing, allowing everyone the opportunity to read books that are reflective of their own experiences, backgrounds and cultures.
