Books by Linda Temienor-Vincent

this journey called life

‘This journey called life’ is a story set in the 70s, mostly in the mid-western region of Nigeria. It tells of a naïve adolescent boy, his upbringing, his relationship with the members of his family, his set of odd friends, the remarkable love of his mother towards him and the conventional life in a rural environment. He gets deceived by his uncle and in record time becomes a victim of his own naivety. In this journey called life, we are left with the question, “Will he ever be rescued by fate?”

mouth hung open

‘MOUTH HUNG OPEN’ a rural-based scoundrel in his mid-twenties battles his overbearing benefactor for supremacy and wealth, leaving behind a trail of exploited victims and an unresolved mystical disaster.

no need for lies & 2 bonus stories

‘No need for lies’ inspires hope and action in a group of youths through the collection of personal experiences of a small sample of successful entrepreneurs from the Nigerian business community connecting their struggles to their successes. We see six business owners tell their stories from scratch to top in a dramatic but real expose in the most street-savvy way they can as their way of voluntarily giving back to society.


A beautiful lady in love with the surface of things embraces matrimony wrongly, and an unbelievable twist of events unfold.


All seemed well for Bernard until he is plagued by doom and a backstabbing fiancée.

what is your name

Mayamma, a twenty-two-year-old orphaned Nigerian girl with a knack for telling stories, escapes from her slave mistress to attend a once-in-a-lifetime but incredible opportunity. If victorious, she will rise to become somebody in a way that could change her sense of self. When she walks into the room where the pitch will take place, Mayamma plans to be herself. She knows it would be a risk because regular interviews are frosted with set expectations of what to say and how to act. However, Mayamma is not wrong as the pitch starts off on an awkward note. The irritation of the panellists and their insistence of Mayamma’s surname will leave them in awe as it forces Mayamma to narrate the trajectory of her lost identity from Bayelsa to Lagos and a life full of molestation. Mayamma is unsure of what the reaction of her threemember audience might be as she reels out her experiences in a most dispassionate manner. She, however, weighs the option of a return to her slave mistress should the pitch be unsuccessful but the responses of her audience leaves Mayamma perplexed and sets the stage for a new life.
