About Osman Proper

I'm a bipolar recluse that writes from the privacy of my home. I have a difficult time being around people, but I'm working on that. Writing is one of the many tools I use to cope with both my social disorder and my mental one.

Unfortunately at this time I do not have a dedicated webspace, facebook or twitter account. I'm not as well versed in technology as the rest of the world seems to be.

I read A LOT. Like two or more books a day a lot. My only other real hobby is writing, though I've been known to pick up a paint brush every now and then.

I accept emails so long as you're not selling something or adding me to some chain mailing list. Whether it's critique or praise, I'll welcome it.

I start off with this codicil; I do not like any stories written in the first person. In fact I abhor them, to the point where I normally shelve the book before I complete the first sentence. I purchased Thirty Minutes based on the cover description while sitting at the airport lounge.

I read the first page on the plane and with no shelf available; I added a four letter word to the first sentence, that I’m sure the author would not have put there, and to my own amazement continued reading. Not just the first paragraph, but the entire story. I won’t say it was gripping, or the greatest story I have ever read but it was well written, believable and above all entertaining. To summarise, a good read! So what more could any reader want?

As for my star rating, here’s the thing; I rate ‘O’ as being absolute rubbish and ‘5’ as being literary genus, based on that scale this story rates 2.5. – I give it a 3 only because the system does not allow half points.

This is a fantastic short story, I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a great story that is also very well written. I just bought your book "Thirty Years", and I can't wait to read it. Your writing is so descriptive I can almost smell the terrorists' hands as he places the watch necklace around Sarahs' neck, and the feel the pushing and shoving of the people trying to get the best seat on the train. Thank you for sharing your talent. This is one story I will never forget.
