About the Author
Adebukola Afolabi was born in Nigeria, where she spent the greater part of her education. She later traveled abroad to pursue a master's degree. Growing up, she had immersed herself into reading novels and books of various genres, by way of educating herself on human thoughts and interactions. These fascinating stories - most of which were fictional writings - birthed a desire in her to write.
Following past writing attempts of short pieces and blog posts, the dream of writing a complete book became a reality in 2020. As the world was, and is still plagued by uncertainties, she was able to draw strength from the pleasant experiences of the characters in her book. This saw her through completing this book, as well as trying to live through these times.
In recent years, she worked with a French company. During her employment, her love for French grew, which led to a renewed decision to learn the language further. Her mastery of French improved, and she felt inspired to give her book the French title 'Enchanté.'
