My name is Monika and I live in Skopje, Macedonia. I am a psychologist and a writer. My life motto is that I should not spend a day without dancing and writing.

I wrote a novel, science fiction (post-apocalyptic dystopia).

Things don’t fall from the sky. Miracles don’t happen. Continue reading Patience
