Biography

Thank you for visiting my Smashwords profile.

A breif summary about myself.

I live in Brisbane, Australia.

Writing is one of my passions which is why I chose to study it, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in writing at Griffith University in 2010.

These days I am a registed nurse but I still try to write as much as possible in my spare time.

My goal is to expand my readership through my stories and to grow as a writer. One day, I hope to get a manuscript published commercially.

I welcome all kinds of feedback about my writing, good and bad, I believe that is the best way to grow as a writer.

Smashwords book reviews by Kristen Rose

  • The Long Afternoon on Feb. 24, 2013

    I enjoyed this story and I thought it was very well written. Usually when I go to read something, it takes a few pages for me to start to get into it, but I was hooked within the first few paragraphs. It was captivating and the characterisation was very well done.
  • Mysterio the Great on Feb. 26, 2013
    (no rating)
    I thought the plot of 'Mysterio the Great' was nicely concocted and there were some laughable moments. Although, I felt the style of the writing seemed a litte immature and I think it could benefit from a few more re-edits as there were some errors which distracted me a little upon reading it.
  • Untitled: A Fairy Tale on Feb. 27, 2013

    This story reminded me of my own style of writing and humour so I very much enjoyed reading it. Querky humour, entertaining and a fun read; the way stories should be in my opinion. Perhaps it is not up the alley of those more serious at heart, but if you just love stories that take you somewhere out of the ordinary, then I recommend 'Untitled: A Fairy Tale.' It also seemed to be well edited and well written for the genre
  • A Transaction Between Seven and 9. on Feb. 27, 2013

    Good for a quick read and very satisfying. I found myself relating to the main character in regards to his thoughts and feelings of the situation he was in and empathised with him accordingly which, I feel, is a good quality to have in a story. It was nicely written in the present tense (something which can be challenging to do I have found) and was well edited.
  • The Last Case on Feb. 28, 2013

    A stream of consciousness that was a little overwhelming to read, mostly because the sentences kept going and going and going, I felt like I needed to stop for air. Whether this was intentional or not for the characterisation, I'm not sure. There were multiple issues with tense and a lot of contradictions in the narrative which interrupted the reading experience. On a positive note, I liked the plot. I very much enjoy stories about unusual topics and situations, and an FBI agent being shot by their doctor, is a little unusual. Not too sure if I would call it realistic fiction though...
