Writing is what I love to do. Creating, building, destroying and exploring the minds and lives and worlds of the characters that live in my mind is simply fun. I have fun with what I do and can only hope that my readers enjoy the journeys of each tale.

    I really enjoyed reading this story. With just the slightest tweaks Here and there you'll have it just right. Well done overall. The pace is good, you've kept the interest consistent and a good ending. I also like that your interest and knowledge of WWI are reflected in the tale and woven together well to the darker aspects of the situation.
