Well you've found my profile page, thus you've already qualified for an attaboy award (a pat on the head and a chuck on the shoulder).

I am a 20 something writer out of South Africa (Howzit my lanies, ons klap dit stukkend hier!), I am a professional cat herder, with other words a teacher.

John John said: " Review on “The Dry” by Rebecca Nolen.

The Dry is an unexpected late Christmas joy. The author eases you into a beautifully sketched world that demands in a soft voice that you stay and enjoy the ride. The prose is fluid and flows from page to page but

"I'm truly in awe

Meet Charlie, assassin extraordinaire! This book gives you her origins and how she came to be. Well written, fantastic imagination, I officially give this book five stars! "
The Venom Protocols by John Murray McKay
"This book is fast-paced and full of action. It is also an emotional roller coaster and at the end we all want the same thing - good things for Charlie.
