Very excited to be part of the very first #AOBF
Romance seems to be one of the fastest growing genre's in African and why not? Africa has an amazing backdrop/setting and warm, loving people. It was ROSA con (Romance Writers South Africa) That inspired me to step away form YA and attempt the exciting world of Romance .
Infallible was born!
