About D. H. Torkavian

Hi, I’m D. H. Torkavian.
My earliest memory is of a lizard clinging to my face. I am proud fat, transgender, witch and budding writer of speculative fiction. Writing is a triumph for me because I didn’t learn to read until I was fourteen years old. I hope that this will be a space where my stories can be enjoyed by fans, as well as a place where new fans can find me. I am working on posting up some new short stories and hopefully even full length novels. I invite you to come on this journey with me as we adventure through my imagination together!

Please feel free to contact D. H. Torkavian through Smashwords!

Very good. It is short, but doesn't disappoint. Like everyone else I wish it was longer!

I was a little hesitant at first with all the tags, but I jumped in and read it.
I really liked it and would love to see a full length novel, building on the story.

I think my favorite part of this was the subtly. Without telling us expressly, D.H. writes about a vampire (and her kin) and a budding transgendered person. I loved the relationship play between Aunt Marlena and William, how he fears and then wants her. I hope this turns into something bigger, someday.

Aunt Marlene (Abigail) came to visit her sister & William the son. She was in poor health & dying. Grandma came to pay her respects.
Dream or reality?
Awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written sorta personal or true-to-life sad short story (book). It wasn’t always easy to read/follow from start/finish but never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of unique scenarios & a great set of characters. Not real sure I understood the whole story content. That said I will rate it at 3/5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free book
