‘Blackness is not monolithic’ says author Bolu Babalola

Bolu Babalola’s novels are a chance to escape the daily grind and miseries of this world.

The characters in her latest romantic comedy go through the motions of a messy relationship – big romantic gestures as well as public arguments.

The best-selling books are part of a huge rise in sales of romance fiction but the author and screenwriter says the genre is still very limited and black female characters in particular lack representation. She’s doing her best to change that.
