About Sherzahd

Born and raised in beautiful Cape Town, I've always found the surrounding mountains and oceans to be a source of inspiration. A poet at heart, I have recently begun branching out by trying my hand at writing prose and short stories of all genres.

I do hope that you enjoy reading my stories even half as much as I enjoy writing them.

Review by: Robert Conway on July 23, 2012 :
Without a doubt there is talent here. This short story is emotionally engaging and psychologically correct. The only negative thing to say is that it is too short. There is enough room between the lines to create a beautiful novella – possibly even, a novel. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the poetry. It was over before I was ready for it to be over.

Review by: Jake Malden on June 08, 2012 :
Sherzahd grounds raw emotion in the concrete details of real life, which only serves to make her story more convincing and the journey of the protagonist more affecting. The sense of reality here is discomfiting, but the humanity of the piece takes us through the trauma to a place of hope. Spiritual or humanist - it can be read as either. A story facing up to life's pain should be done with craft and empathy. This has them both in abundance and the result is deeply moving.

Review by: viv hotten on May 28, 2012 :
An emotional rollercoaster that dips a long, long way and makes the reader feel the raw hurt depicted baldly but realistically. If you are looking for sugar coating during the journey then hard luck.

If there's one thing about life that this reinforces is that however painful the downs, you have to hold on to and rejoice the ups. If you want to believe in miracles, fine, that's your choice, I put my faith in people and their strength, and this story reaffirms that. But be ready to sniff a bit on the way!

The author manages to cut to the heart incisively without fuss or falling into the trap of overdressing the tale being told. To my eyes, there's a real talent here waiting to be encouraged and mined.
