Flora loves imparting knowledge and helping people. She is a voracious reader and a prolific writer who spends most of her time imagining characters and events. Flora’s love for books is so fierce that she once had a confrontation with a friend for withholding her books for longer than permitted.

Flora has always wanted to be a writer from an early age and has always imagined stories as far back as she could remember. At age 10 she wrote an imaginary story. She has over the years honed her skill as a writer. She owns a blog www.floramichaels.com where she publishes short stories among other content. Her short stories such as “Terms and Conditions Apply” and “A Soldier’s Curse” were published on naijastories.com in 2016. She is presently working on a collection of short stories.

Flora conceived the idea of writing self-help non-fiction books in 2018 when she was exploring the right way to balance family life and work life. She has worked on Simply Food Plans for over a period of three (3) years because she believes that things are best shown to others when demonstrated by proven actions.

Just like Arrows from Crossbows, our thoughts travel far and wide with a final destination that defines our mindset.
