I am an aspiring writer living in coastal North Carolina. I have written stories in many different genres, most of which favor surrealism and dramatic fantasy. I especially love stories depicting animals in such a way that it represents human culture (e.g. Aesop’s Fables). I have joined Smashwords in an effort to make some of my lesser known works available to the reading public. Also, you can read my blog at

Smashwords book reviews by TK Wade

  • Opposites on Oct. 16, 2012

    The most intriguing thing about this story is how relaxed it made me as the reader. It gave me a false sense of security. Sure, you can tell something "wrong" is happening, but there just isn't enough to go on until "it" happens. It hits you all at once. Very clever delivery.
  • Brainjack on Nov. 12, 2012

    This was a pretty fun read. It felt like a retro murder investigation with a science fiction backdrop. Although there were a few typos that got in my way, I still enjoyed the experience. Good job!
  • Vengeance and Valor on Nov. 20, 2012

    The best thing the author does with this story is make it perfectly clear who these people are on both sides of the siege. It is very difficult to pick a side because you becomes seriously acquainted with both of them. In some ways, it felt like I was standing with each of them in the middle of the battlefield. Both sides have not only a good reason to be there, but they also have families to go home to as well. This is clearly presented by the author. It was a very good read. Be prepared to become apart of this story as you read it.
  • Of Secrets, Letters, and Lions on Nov. 26, 2012

    The author does a very good job in making this feel like an authentic experience rather than a tale of fiction. It draws you in and you become apart of that world, first feeling like a third-party observer, but by the end, a direct participater. The characters felt alive and, at times, very fun. The portrayal of the Victorian Age was also a pleasure and felt supremely authentic. Highly recommended.
  • Roses for Cassandra on Dec. 09, 2012

    A brief but still heartwarming love story with a bit of scary drama mixed into it. It feels like it was lacking a bit in development, but I still recommend it for a light reading night.
  • Mortal Hobby on Jan. 02, 2013

    A very short, but powerful look into the mind of a serial killer. This story chronicles several incidents in his "career" with a surprise ending that I cannot spoil. This is a good story if you like to be scared, but some lack of detail may leave you wanting to know more concerning the victims and the killer. Still recommended.
  • Culloo on Aug. 23, 2013

    I really liked this story a lot. The author does a brilliant job portraying children in a very dire situation. The mystical aspects of this story is subtle which I believe makes the impression all the more powerful. I found myself on the edge of my seat for most of it. I highly recommend this story!
