Joel Musa

Jos, Northern Territory, Nigeria


Alright, a little about me. The author is a voracious, eclectic reader of religious, inspiration and self-help book and love writing them as well. At the age of 16 I won the Academic Scholarship Award to study computer engineering. The award was presented to me on the 25th of January, 2003, on the National Television Authority NTA (Channel 10), Lagos, Nigeria, by Engineer Simeon Onasanya – a man who had worked for the International Business Machine (IBM) rated to be the number one computer company in the World and had also delivered lectures at the yearly American Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer (IEEE) convention, and was televised live nationwide!

As founder and president of The Nigerian Writers’ Institute (TNWI), I have written so many short fictions which are yet to be book-to-film.

As founder of a writing institute, the author has frequently taught lecturers in higher institutions’ of learning, church reverends, business people and youths on creative writing. I frequently give talks in schools. I started teaching in seminars and conferences in 2009, particular under Greenleaf International Conference.

While studying computer engineering I undertook a series of motivational research work which took great investment of my time, money and energy (just as much as it took Webster 36 years to write his dictionary). And prominent among them was the prestigious title, How to Make Your New Year Your Best Year Ever – a more than 13 chapters’ work which took more than eight years to complete, and which penetrates into the spiritual secrets that lies behind renowned achievement all year round, and could have been lodged with the British Library, The University Libraries of Oxford and Cambridge, The National Libraries of Scotland and Wales and the Library of Trinity College, Dublin, after publication but was later pull-off due to reasons best known to me.

The book in question had won a wide spectrum of expression, aroused global interest, paroxysm of applause and international comments from different quarters around the World such as England, Canada and Nigeria with different publishing companies sending letters and jostling to get the first ice of the cake from the book. Below are some of the reviews I received from international publishers around the globe:

“Your book has a lot of interesting ideas. Probably you speak more than you write . . . I understand that you have a message you wish to offer the world that is intensely needed. That’s a noble pursuit.” CANANDA, Sherri Jackson.

“. . . no letter can answer all the questions an author may wish to ask a publisher. Nor can it detail the precise relationship between the Author and the Publisher. Your book has a unique identity, after all.” ENGLAND, A. Legg.

My first work, however, was titled, Philosophical Conscience, which was privately printed late 2008 and distributed among prominent personages for their ascent, correction and suggestions.

However, as an acerbic writer I have attended so many conferences and seminars. Around mid 2009, I successfully self published the book titled, Do You Make These Mistakes in Telephone Conversations? This work gave me the rare opportunity to deliver lecture to the entire high school principals in the city of Jos, Plateaus State, Nigeria, at the Federal Ministry of Education and consequently, to most of the high school students in Jos.
