Jordan Ifueko is a Nigerian-American writer of Young Adult and New Adult fiction. She isn’t sure where all those stains on her manuscript came from (plantain grease? shea butter?). When she isn’t refreshing Lupita Nyong’o’s IMDB page, she posts adventures on JordanIfueko.com and moves commas around in her fantasy novel. You can find her on Twitter @jifueko.

Heitaro was a rational young fellow who believed in the progress and harmony of mankind. He felt nothing but contempt for ghosts and yokai and didn’t hesitate to declare that anyone scared of such insubstantial phenomena was an unenlightened imbecile. He had a habit of saying things like, “Act like you’re living in the 20th century!”
