Ibiere Addey (known to friends as ‘Ibi’) has a Bachelors degree in Computing and Information Systems from London Guidhall University. She has worked in various industries such as retail, banking, consultancy and is currently based in Germany, with her husband and two children. She has written over 200 poems, various short stories/novellas and published five children’s picture books in 2015. She also took part at the October 2015 Frankfurt Book Fair.
Ibi currently works as a Senior Operation Analyst, reviewing processes and ensuring technical implementation as per business requirement. For Ibi, even her job is just another form of story-telling, bringing to life the customer’s needs and expectations. She’s been in these type of roles for seven or eight years, and while she loves meeting people and being involved in the development process, that burning desire to keep writing takes over once the working day is over. “The funny thing is that writing other stuff has been lingering in my mind all day, but the hustle and bustle of a typically technical operations world keeps it restricted,” she explains.
As an author, Ibi’s main goal is to capture the reader’s mind with witty and intriguing dialogue.
My foundation class enjoyed Bob's Blanket... they could easily relate to it as half the class still had stuffed toys they were finding hard to leave at home when coming to school. — Chioma Dibor
Bible Machines (Car Series) David & Goliath)...was a hit with my boys...they loved it! The illustrations were very nicely done. Some feedback from the boys in terms of lessons learned include: when you boast you end up losing; never judge a book by its cover; the bigger you are, the slower you'll move; and never bully those smaller than you are. — Maureen Uchendu
On Bob's Blanket Gets a Wash: The kids enjoyed the story very much, and us, as adults, felt like we were reading our own thoughts. The story is so real! Therefore I highly recommend it further. —Ion
New to school visits but have done book signings and attended FrankFurt Book Fairs.
Also prepared a practical approach to school visit presentation, as the nature of my current job involves presentations to users in interactive and engaging ways.
