Episode 17-Author Alex Owumi

Today on the podcast I have Alex Owumi, He’s a fiction writer and pro-basketball player. His new book is The Man in Forest Hills, a new detective/mystery novel. He is also the author of the Fire Raven Series. In addition to this he is an author of the non -fiction book Qaddafi’s Point Guard about his time in Libya playing for Al-Nasr, a Libyan basketball team owned by the family of Momar Gaddafi, during the Libyan civil war. He’s originally from Lagos, Nigeria and lives in Atlanta, but most of his year is spent in England, where he plays for the Worthing Thunder, a National Basketball League team. On the episode today we talk about what it’s like to be a pro- athlete and writer, his time in Libya and growing up in Nigeria. He was a great guest. This was one of the easiest and most interesting conversations I’ve had so far. I hope you enjoy it!
