About Amanda Surowitz

From her earliest days, Amanda Jean Surowitz has been a gypsy in spirit. A jack of all trades...a renaissance woman. Her first career choice was not to be a writer, but a scientist. She was first inspired after reading some of her brother's stories to write one of her own, even though she was just in middle school. Two years later she had her first finished book and had the desire to make writing her life. Now a full-time student with the Savannah College of Art and Design, Amanda divides her time between Georgia and Virginia. She lives with her family, a little Celtic gnome that inhabits her work space, some fairies and a few dragons.*

*All fantasy creatures are of miniature size, and are deemed harmless by local librarians.

Review by: Michael Carter on May 28, 2013 :
This very short story has good writing, but I found it too short to make much impact with the strong theme. When the ending came it merely confirmed the "twist" I'd already guessed, mostly from reading the description of the story. I would be interested to find out more about the characters, and the situation, and, indeed, what happenned next, but this piece on it's own seemed like it had been amputated and condensed from a larger plot. Good writing, though, so I will try another of the authors stories.

Review by: Sandra Black on May 26, 2013 :
The idea was good but poorly executed - particularly from a historical perspective. Whiskey did not exist in Ireland in 1300 but was introduced 200 years later. Same for barber-surgeons. They didn't operate until the 1500s.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on May 25, 2013 :
Good short flash fiction story involving a rather nasty bloke and his wife. Nice piece of writing with a "happy ending" thrown in to boot. Good stuff.
