The End Of Time

Rated 4.75/5 based on 20 reviews
An excited town… a mesmerized crowd… they loved her as soon as they set eyes on her. Beautiful, breathtaking, that’s what everyone said of her. Day after day, she could feel their eyes on her, always smiling. She worked hard for them, rain or shine, and was always there for them… so why did they hang her? A 592 word short story.

About GlennAndSasha Gabriel

Update Notice: July 14, 2016.

Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting our Authors Page.

Sasha and I apologize for the delay of book four of our Amanda Ackers series. We have both had some health issues, so, my writing is on hold for a while.

We are very thankful to you all, for supporting our work, which we do for the enjoyment as new authors.

Our thanks also, to the many of you who have emailed us with kind comments on our stories and the first three books of our novel series, and those who have requested receiving a pre-release version. We had never thought of doing a pre-release, but thought it was a great idea! It gave many a chance to read book two and three of Amanda’s adventures, before we actually published it. Thanks to all of you!

We are most humbled by the response we have received, and thank you from the top, middle and bottom of our hearts!

If anyone would like to correspond with us, please shoot us an email when you get the chance, we would love to hear from you.

Hello and thank you for visiting our page.

My name is Sasha Gabriel, and I would like to take a few moments to say a little about Glenn and myself.

They say that creativity belongs to the young. Well, not always. Young at heart, I’ll buy, but nothing else.

Writing is relatively new for me. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my 60+ years. But writing seemed daunting. How do you write an idea to get over to other people without boring them to death? How do you write conversations that sound like the people who are speaking them?

Once I studied the “how to’s” a bit, and with the encouragement from Glenn, my wonderful husband and best friend, I started writing.

And I love it. So does Glenn.

Writing has opened a door for me that nothing else has – my imagination has soared and I’m absolutely thrilled and thankful, from the bottom of my heart, that others like my writing, as well.

Both Glenn and I have written and published very, very short stories (no more than 600 word stories) because these were also entered into a writing contest with that directive.

At the same time, both Glenn and I are writing novels (Glenn’s is awesome!!!! Think the depth of Lord of the Rings with the immediacy of Harry Potter and you’ve got it!).

But I want to share something with you all… Glenn has battled Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia almost his entire life. That’s a mouthful, for sure, but try living with them on a daily basis!

Even so, Glenn has worked to overcome the more serious side effects and his talent in writing, painting, and all over creativity is nothing short of staggering.

Honestly… I’m running to keep up with him but I’m mostly just out of breath!

So… the bottom line is… we’re all just human with all our challenges and it’s those challenges that make what we create that much better.

Please… If you like to read… then write. For writing, get to your keyboard and begin. If you don’t know how start, or where to find ideas for a story or chapter, please contact Glenn. He has helped over 30 people to date get started, and published, and does it for FREE.

We think you’ll surprise yourself at your talents if you just give writing a try.
And, again… Thank You all for your kind and generous words of appreciation for our stories!

It means the world to us!


Glenn here.

Just wanted to add that we never thought anyone would even read our work, let alone have downloaded our little stories now over 300,000 times.

Because of the kind words from you all, I will continue to write. I have, as Sasha had mentioned, been writing the Amanda Ackers novel series, with Sasha contributing several chapters to each book. I now have 21 other novels started.

I had only begun writing the novel for fun, for our grandson Logan. I was not going to publish it, just print it out to give to him. However, with all the encouragement I have received via email, from those reading our little short stories, I have decided to publish the Amanda Ackers series for FREE here on The series is also in print on and, but of course, being in print, I have to charge for them.
My many thanks to all of you, for your continued support.

Please feel free to contact Sasha and I at the following email address. We would love to hear from you, even to just say hi:

Reviews of The End Of Time by GlennAndSasha Gabriel

Marcia Carrington reviewed on Sep. 25, 2013

This is another of the author's great works, a short story which grabs the reader from the beginning, and does not let up until the end. The author's customary humorous touches are in evidence here, and are employed to great effect. Well done.

Walter Lazo reviewed on July 9, 2013

Not bad, and I really liked the way the story was executed. There were, however, some awkward elements, such as point of view shifts. Overall, though, good story, very entertaining.

Bronnie Wu reviewed on Sep. 20, 2012

An entertaining and competently written story. The ending was apparent about half way through as the author spent far too much time focussing on the hands and face. The townspeoples reactions at the beginning were very much over the top and if their reaction had been a little more muted this story would have more power and entertainment value. Good grammar for once on Smashwords!

I got to the last page and figured it out! Another twisted story, the kind I like best.

I've read all Glenn's stories and really love this one, as well as his "The Shortcut." If you haven't read any of his other stories, or those of his wife Sasha, you need to visit their authors page. This is a great story with an ending that really threw me!

This is a really great short story with a very surprising ending! The ending totally took me by surprise and I had to reread the story again, and found myself nodding with a smile. Very well done!

I've read all your stories to date. This one is my favourite (Canadian spellling). Kept you guessing right til the end - loved the part about grampa.

Sad yet clever twist. Good storytelling in the short story format.
