About Lorraine McLeod

Lorraine McLeod has been writing for many years, first taking creative writing classes at Liverpool University. Through these classes she was inspired to write her first two novels and was featured in two anthologies. Later, she worked with the artist Gino d'Artali and was published with him in Bordersenses in 2001.

Lorraine was invited to read on Radio Merseyside, Liverpool, England and had to put writing on hold while studying for her degree. Since moving to Canada in 2004, Lorraine has revised her novels, started new projects and takes part in a monthly open microphone event. Her short story 'Parasite' won the July 2010 Story Slam event which was sponsored that month by On Spec Magazine.

Lorraine's day job involves working on the web but at home she finds time for writing and photography. Her next creative pursuit will be painting.

Review by: John Harrison on Oct. 3, 2012 :
I loved it. It was a very fast read, expected since it was more of a short story than anything. What I loved about it was the serial and timeless quality. It kept the questions coming and wasn't too predictable.

Overall, worth the time it took to read. :D

Review by: Rebecca Freeman on July 28, 2012 :
This is a very intriguing scene. I can’t help feeling like I’ve been transported to a different and horrific world. I don’t know the rules. I don’t understand what’s happening or why, but it’s captivating nonetheless. Perhaps it has to do with the strength of the prose. I like the descriptions and the mood the scene delivers. If there were more, I’d read it. It might make a good sample, but it’s too incomplete to be a story.

A nice monologue. It is well written, and could be used for a short film.

It was a free read and since the kids are swimming and the husband napping I thought why not. I guess I should be in the lake with the kids instead. If you read between the lines, you can fill in the details the author clearly missed. Maybe make a game out of it.
