Hi, am Barine. Am an African and i love writing works that portray my roots. Hope you enjoy my books.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Nigeria, with my dad, mum, and four younger siblings. My dad read a lot and he encouraged me to do the same, even making me read in church as young as 6.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing quite early. By 11 i had two manuscripts of short stories ready, though i'll say i was too embarrassed to show it to anyone. But by thirteen, i wrote another one that was published two years later.
