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)
If you need a writer, someone to edit your work, read your work and tell you their honest and professional opinion, create an ebook for you or help you with your book cover. Feel free to contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org
