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, tranny, 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!

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.

Review by: L.J. Longo on Feb. 22, 2014 :
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
