About Etienne

Etienne lives in central Florida, very near the hamlet in which he grew up. He always wanted to write but didn't find his muse until a few years ago, when he started posting stories online. These days he spends most of his time battling with her, as she is a capricious bitch who, when she isn't hiding from him, often rides him mercilessly, digging her spurs into his sides and forcing the flow of words from a trickle to a flood.

Review by: Old Grumpy on Oct. 11, 2013 :
Excellent story.
The only problem was, when I reached the end of a chapter, I had to read the next one , until I finished.
I liked how the past and present alternated, rather than use a continous time line.

I disagree with Sharon about it being bland. Spending pages on the inner turmoil of the main characters would have interfered with the running of the story.

Review by: Taylor Ryan on Oct. 09, 2013 :
Frankly, I'm a little shocked at how bad it was after buying this based on the previous reviews. It was very bland writing. The plot was fine, but there was little to no emotional commitment to draw you into the story and characters. It could have be SO much better if the author had spent more time delving into the emotional psyche of the MCs, especially Winston. For what he supposedly went through, Winston was very bland and too stoic. Other works I've read that are similar spend pages on the inner turmoil of the MCs, This one does not. I almost didn't bother finishing it, but I'd paid for it so I did, and would not recommend anyone pay for this.

A fabulous book - I read it twice already - it made me sad, angry and happy and I cried and laughed but it also made me want to read Etienne's other stories regarding Marco and Dani - I have already purchased one of them!!

Review by: stephen fraser on Aug. 13, 2012 :
Again another brilliant book by Etienne - I had not realised that it would weave in so many of the well loved characters from Avondale when I first started reading it. This is a true love story - painful to read - you cannot help but love and admire the main character or his partner. A true romance and i dare anyone not to have to sit and read it in one sitting - as well as experience a full gamut of emotions as you do.

Thanks Etienne

What VE Whitaker said.

This author is amazing in puting words on paper (ebook) in that the story flows. In this one, I felt my eyes moving fast, in anticipation of what came next. Made my heart hurt for the young man the subject of this book. A great love story. Read the book in a sitting.

Review by: VE Whitaker on June 26, 2012 :
Etienne pushed the envelope with Sold! The book is a great read. I love the way he intertwined many of his Avondale Series characters in the story. It was like old home week. I was not disappointed with the quality of the book, it was consistent with the author's previously published books which have become my main library for rereads.
