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
