Overview

Ife is no longer a young girl, but a woman living in the city, practicing medicine. She still channels, however, the spirit of Numen Yeye, a princess from the Kingdom of Light.

While Ife's life is professionally fulfilling, she is suffering from her transitional state - her ties back to her village and her family, the reconciliation between her spiritual and earthly forms, and her very special connection with Babatunde, her soul-mate.

Rose of Numen continues Ife's journey through the ancient rhythms of traditional Nigerian culture, and the impact of the modern world. Ife has come to terms with being Numen; her preoccupation now is how to effectively use the knowledge.

Enter this spiritual fantasy, interlaced with Biola Olatunde's unique idiom tied so closely to her homeland.

With more than 30 years experience as a scriptwriter and producer, Biola Olatunde has written more than 200 stories for both radio and television, as well as poetry anthologies, an adventure novel, Blood Contract, a contemporary African fantasy novel series Numen Yeye, and an e-chapbook collection of haunting short stories, Sunset Tales. She is an alumnus of the Dramatic Arts department Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, Nigeria. A professionally trained newscaster, she went independent over twenty years ago. She got involved in intervention drama to help change attitudes towards behavioral change and so created a series for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) on teenage reproductive health, "I NEED TO KNOW". It was so successful that the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) became involved and had it adapted into radio, in two of the major Nigerian languages. It was shown on national, state and private television and radio in the country as well as on satellite television. Biola has always been interested in bringing social issues to public attention using drama and fiction, including writing for USAID on maternal health, Democracy and Governance, Women's issues, and HIV/AIDS. She was given a distinguished alumni award from the Dramatic Arts Department of her alma mater O.A.U Ife, in recognition of her contributions to the growth of the legacy of Dramatic Art.
