Ada Nnadi

Ada Nnadi (they/she) is presently studying Psychology at the University of Lagos. She works as an editorial intern at Kachifo Limited. Their story Tiny Bravery co-won the 2020 Nommo Awards in short fiction category and appeared on the 2019 Locus Recommended Reading List. Some of their other work is forthcoming in a few other venues. They are currently toiling away at a YA Africanjujuism novel. Ada hopes that after her second degree, the Nigerian Psychological Association will NIPOST her the ability to read minds, like all psychologists before her. Ada will one day be the mother of many cats, two birds (because that’s the closest they’ll ever have to getting a pet dinosaur)—and maybe a small dog.

Work in progress

MMIRI: A JENGU’S TAIL is a sapphic YA contemporary fantasy with series potential set mainly in Nigeria. Perfect for fans of NNEDI OKORAFOR, ARU SHAH AND THE END OF TIME, and the PERCY JACKSON SERIES, Mmiri is for every African/Black child who grew up watching movies where African Traditional Religion was an evil to be destroyed by Christianity, and wanted, just once, for traditional religion and its gods to win.
