Awards awards...I'd like to thank my followers for making this possible...

 I would like to thank M.J.A. Ware for making my day by nominating me for my first award! In order for me to accept the award, I have to:
  1. Thanks the person who gave you the award and link to them
  2. Add the award to your blog
  3. Nominate 15 other people to give the award to.
  4. Let your nominees know you have awarded them. 
Here are 7 facts about myself:

1. I'm married for six months now to a wonderful man who understands the crazy, beautiful mind of a writer.
2. I'm a Namibian citizen, born in Angola, lived four years in South Africa, seven years in Germany, have been living in Austria for four years now.
3. My favorite fruit has always been the cherry, until I went on honeymoon to Greece and met the best tasting watermelons. Needless to say, I'm sold. Now I have two kinds of favorite fruits.
4. I hold a bachelors degree in International Business Consultancy
5. I have around 5 to 6 unedited manuscripts lying around because I hate hate hate editing and would rather start a new novel than do it.
6. I started this blog because my editor told me it would be a good idea to promote my writing. I didn't know it would contribute so much to my personal growth too,and  that I would meet such a great community of writers (A big thanks goes to my followers)
7. I speak Oshiwambo (mother tongue--it's okay, you don't have to try and pronounce it), English, German, and some Spanish. Before the next ten years are up, I want to learn sign language and Chinese.

Well, that's me in a nutshell.
