Nigerian Author, Oyinkan Braithwaite’s Debut Novel “My Sister, the Serial Killer” is being adapted for TV.

This is the author’s first book project, and even though it is set for release later this year, months before its release, Braithwaite first novel is set to be adapted into a film.

Her book has reportedly been picked up by UK production companies Working Title and Big Talk for a film adaptation ahead of its release, Braithwaite is also said to have received a five-figure advance from US-based publisher Doubleplay for her hghly-anticiapted debut.

The slasher comedy follows the dark shenanigans of sisters Korede and Ayoola. Korede finds herself in a predicament when she’s forced to deal with Ayoola’s peculiar habit of killing off the men she dates; the literature is a mix of thrill as it is frightening yet engaging for the reader to unravel the mystery behind the pages; the book is set to be released Stateside on November 13.

Just a few weeks ago, the news was all about 24 year-old Nigerian-American novelist Tomi Adeyemi’s lucrative deal with Fox Studios which had been previously agreed upon last year, ahead of the release for her debut “Children of Blood and Bone”; it seems Braithwaite’s success tows the line. It seems like an exciting year for women shaping Africa.
