Bina Idonije

Bina Idonije



Bina’s earliest memory of writing dates back to the eighties, when she was about six or seven and she wrote a book she titled “Johnny the scalawag” which was written and illustrated by her with pencil, and she stuck its seven or eight pages together with water gum to create a bounded prose work.

Today she is a lawyer by training, whose random interests, when she is not being a legal professional, include drooling over plant species, hosting friends for drinks at her home, and spending meditative time at the beach while listening transcendentally to music from eras past. She resides in the chaotic coastal city of Lagos, Nigeria, with her husband and three children.
‘Bridges are for Burning’ is her debut novel.
