DAVID ATTA

Writer

Born in Zaria and raised in Lagos to a Muslim, Ebira father, and a Christian, Urhobo mother, David Atta embodies the diversity characterizing his nation, Nigeria.

A trained architect who lives in Abuja with his wife and four daughters, he believes that art and creativity in a broken nation and world must first serve to influence people positively, contributing to the building of healthy mindsets and constructive culture. His writing reflects this.

Guardians: The Awakening is his first novel.
