About Michelle Birbeck

Michelle is 29 and has been reading and writing her whole life. Her earliest memory of books was when she was five and decided to try and teach her fish how to read by putting her Beatrix Potter books in the fish tank with them.

Since then her love of books has grown, and now she is writing her own and looking forward to seeing them on her shelves, though they won’t be going anywhere near the fish tank.

When she’s not writing, she’s out and about on her motorbike or sitting with her head in a book.

Review by: Joy Johnson on Nov. 27, 2012 :
On the positive side: I loved the suspense and thrill of this short story. It possessed good grammar and punctuation, which I believe every reader in some way does cherish. On the negative side: I found some of the technical aspects of the story difficult to digest. There is no separation between the copyright page, the story, or the 'about the author' page. This confused me some, especially in the beginning. Transitions between setting and action were also a bit rough. My biggest complaint though, is that the author gives no explanation as to why Leanne's 'yes,' was the trigger for Kyle's psychotic break. However, this is a short story and as every reader should know, short stories are often a different animal in the literary world. All in all, though, not a bad read.

typo - "quake much"? I meant "take much" in the review below (damn auto-correct!)

Thanks Michelle - this was reasonably well written but perhaps needs just a little bit more. I'd like to know why Kyle did what he did etc..., you know, just a bit more background etc... It's written in the third person, so I'm sure that could be done. The style is very good, the descriptions quite good. There's a couple of lines that might need review ("his words slid across her skin..." as an example) but i could see what you were doing and where you were going. Maybe just needs a few minor changes/alterations. If i could give 3.5 stars I would - it wouldn't quake much to get this to a 4 or 5 star short story because the skill is evident - cheers
