My name is Nolly, but you can call me Sis’ Nolly – everyone else does.
My job as editor here at Nollybooks is to hunt down the best and most entertaining South African stories I can find.
First, a little bit about me, I am 36 and will always be! I was born in Dobsonville in Soweto and still live close by. I am an incurable romantic and love the idea of being in love. Yes, I am seeing a very special man and have been for a long while, let’s just call him Biggie for now. And it’s enough to know that he makes me very happy. He is also a romantic like me. I have been in love with books and reading ever since I was a child and I truly believe that books are the best way of entertaining yourself while expanding your mind. So why not kill two birds with one stone?
We’ve come up with a series of books that we know you will enjoy reading – I certainly enjoyed them. They feature characters you will recognise and storylines you’ll love and they are just the right length.
Chris Rock, the American comedian jokes that, ‘if you want to hide something from a black person, put it in a book’. Let’s prove him wrong and let’s get reading, sistas.
Email me with any comments you might have on Nollybooks. I want to know what you want to read about and what scenarios you’d like to see in our books. Most of all I want to hear about your most romantic moments. How did you meet your man? What have you done for him lately? What has he done for you – romantically speaking of course! All of this could end up in one of our books!
Keep reading, my sista.
