Waking Up Eighty – My Novel & Short Film Out Now!

Posted on March 27, 2021 by - Shola's Posts

I first put pen to paper(figuratively) in 2013, but my interest in storytelling was born around 2009. I had just given up my day job to start my own business, supplying 3D viewing equipment for commercial and private use.

This was at a point in time when the 3D experience was just becoming more accessible over a wide range of media. From cinema houses to kid’s comic book pages, almost any experience could be enhanced with 3D.

But I grew restless with just enhancing other’s creative endeavours. I wanted to throw my own ideas into the ring. And so, in 2013, I began. It was nothing major, just 20 odd pages of a short story with cute illustrations.

Now, eight years later, amid a worldwide pandemic, my little labour of love has grown from a few pages with doodles to a full-fledged novel.

OUT NOW and available to purchase at Waterstones, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

It’s also available to order to the reading room at The British Library.


Kara Stewart, 16, is fed up with just about everything, especially her mom’s annoying new husband. After a fight, she runs away. But,things quickly change when she gets hit by a car and wakes up in a nursing home at the age of 80.
