Yemi Elegunde is a first time author. He was born in London, England in 1966. Before he had turned 8 years old, he and his younger sister disappeared from their home in London with their dad, leaving their mum behind. He grew up in Nigeria, Africa’s most populated country. He finished his primary, secondary and A/Level education in Nigeria and lived there for over 14 years.
The events of discovering his new life and a whole new world and learning to adapt to it, plus the long term scars inspired him to write this book hoping that it may one day help many a child, mother or father to understand the effects of parental abduction on the child.
Today he works as an IT Sales Manager for a large American components manufacturer, Western Digital. He lives in Bedfordshire, South East England where amogst his extra curricular hobbies he is an experienced county F.A Referee. He has one daughter Shaya.
And this figure has been steadily rising as divorce and separation becomes more and more common. What more when the child is abducted and taken overseas? There is very little the government of the child’s birth country can do about it.
