I’m Tola, welcome to my mad and wonderful world. I spend most of my time running around after my two daughters, blogging about hair and writing children’s books amongst other things.
Through my books and wider writing, I’m constantly seeking to create ‘mirrors and windows, allowing everyone the opportunity to read books that are reflective of their own experiences, backgrounds and cultures. I’m also super passionate about parenthood, the role of fathers and strongly believe that resources for parents should be freely and widely available.
My journey as a black author has not been an easy one, unfortunately, there is this very myopic and stereotypical view of BME authors and their work and if you try to step outside of that box, people don’t know what to do with you. So I decided to set up my own publishing company and create my own seat at the table. The success of my ‘The Daddy Do My Hair’ series proves that there is a market for diverse books and diverse authors, it is not a trend or even a niche and it’s time that the mainstream society knew about it.
When I’m not writing books or blogging about parenthood, I’m usually knee deep in hair products. As a healthy hair care advocate and expert, I provide hair coaching services to help guide and support women on theirs and their children’s hair care journeys. I’m passionate about helping others to improve the health of their hair and discover the gorgeous head of hair they were meant to have. I work directly with you to take the confusion out of the process and my hair care coaching approach is built around your needs.
