I’m a bookaholic born and bred with too many novels on my already over-flowing bookshelves. When I’m not reading Lauren Beukes or binge watching New Girl, I’m writing … about everything. My interests and passions change almost daily as I learn about new things and causes. If I find it interesting, I will write about it.

I can never seem to tame my very curly hair. I will never say no to a movie date and I prefer my moijto shaken not stirred.
