The Offline Diaries

Elizabeth Uviebinene studied Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick and then worked as a Marketing manager in the city. It was this experience that led to the writing, with co-author Yomi Adegoke, of the bestselling book, Slay in Your Lane, a life guide for young Black British Women.

In 2018 Elizabeth was the recipient of a Marie Claire Future Shaper award.

Now Elizabeth and Yomi have teamed up again with their first book in a middle-grade series, The Offline Diaries.

It’s a story about friendship and loyalty revolving around school and home. It’s told through a mix of diary entries and social media conversations.
