About Sherry Donacy

Sherry Donacy was born in the heart of the Deep South to Protestant ministers. As she grew, her parents' bigoted and often psychologically abusive beliefs came more and more into conflict with her own. At an early age, she ran as far away as she possibly could, ending up on the streets of Seattle. Eventually, she was able to pick herself back up with the help of the local occult community and her own self guided writing therapy. Always drawn to the macabre, Sherry has worked in morgue security for the last several years. She is currently attending college for a degree in pathology.

It might be irrational to believe in myth but entirely rational to feel invited by a smile.....but which is the safer option? Excellent quick read. Weird though? Ironic perhaps - and great with it!

Another winner from this author. Definitely sends a chill down your spine. Probably the best horror flash fiction around at the moment is coming directly from this author.
Keep up the good work.

"Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water", but this be no shark, so "Avast, me hearties!" And read on.

A modern day life story, mixed up with a greek legend. An enjoyable short story that mixes both fantasy and horror together well.

Review by: Michael Carter on Oct. 3, 2013 :
Firstly, this was a very well presented e-book, attractive font, pleasant to read.

The story, too, is good, drawing on Greek mythology and the insecurities of adolescence.

The writing is for the most part very good; this quick tale is worth five minutes of your time.

And now for the annoying, pedantic [but hopefully helpful] constructive criticism for the authoress; "swimming passed the buoys" etc should clearly be "past the buoys"; just a little error that makes it through a spellchecker. The other thing was, I thought there was a bit too much of "Billy did this..", "Billy did that...". In the second half of the story there were no other male characters so you could chuck a few "Billy's" out and just put "He.", so as to make the prose less repetitive.

But generally, good solid story. I look forward to more.

Graceful writing and a solid read for any age. I thoroughly enjoyed it---and I promise never to follow any beautiful woman beyond the buoys.
