About Diem Burden

On my Twitter profile I describe myself as an 'Englishman, lost in Spain', but it hasn't always been that way. I was lost long before I came to live in Spain.

Addicted to writing since 2008, I seriously smiled when my first publication–a short story based on my life–hit the #1 spot in many categories on Amazon & Kobo, and has been there, more or less, ever since.
I followed this with three more books in the series, epublishing one a year, each increasing in size over its predecessor. Book 5 finally came in 2020, to conclude that series. The whole series was then made available in print via Amazon POD. Now I know. how to write a book, put it together, format it and publish it.
I'm currently working on a three-book adventure series, inspired by my life in Spain working on a secret police operation against UK gangsters on the costas.

In 2020, I became a full-time writer. It's fair to say that I'm going to be around for a while.

Reviews of End of the Road by Diem Burden

Diane Sherrouse reviewed on Aug. 17, 2012

This is gritty, graphic realism at an exciting level. A day in the life of a young soldier turns terrifying, and the reader is brought to the center of the action. What will compel the protagonist; what decision will he make about his future? We'll have to wait for author Diem Burden's next action-packed story in the series!

First, let me say that this is a story about enlisted men in the British army who talk like it. So if profanity, especially the "f" word bother you, keep going. That said, the characters were well written and very believable. The action starts almost immediately and it doesn't take long for you to be drawn in. My only complaint is that just as I got into the story and eager to see what happens next, the story ended! It left me thinking, "Well NOW what?" but I suppose that's a good setup for the second book.

This is a fast paced, exciting tale of young Dave Burden as he experiences an unforgettable day in his otherwise mundane life as a British soldier.

This is a short story that packs a punch! To call it well written does not do it justice. Diem's writing style is both entertaining and heartfelt as he takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride.

I recommend this book! And, I look forward to reading more from Diem Burden in the future.

I will not pretend to be a book critic, I have no verbs, adjectives, nouns or simile's that would do my first delve into a book review justice.
But suffice to say I enjoyed this read, I will be waiting for the next instalment.
