ABOUT ME

Hi, I’m Oyinkan Braithwaite; this is what you need to know about me:

  • I’ve been writing as long as I’ve been reading (twenty something odd years)
  • My romantic life is never quite what it’s supposed to be (but sometimes it’s better)
  • My favourite novel is and always will be Jane Eyre (though Life of Pi gave me some serious goosebumps)
  • I’m often not as good a writer as I’d hope to be (but now and again, I’m better)
