“I have been writing since about age 13, it has always been a personal pleasure of mine. Trying to get my first book published has been a big step for me. I have always enjoyed writing, whether it is a poem, a song, or a short story. I am eager to share my work and I hope that people enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.”

A nasty little tale which is very well written. I honestly think it should have been much longer so as to develop a greater sense of unease. Good grammar and well structured. Three stars is very good for me - especially for a flash fiction tale. I'll have to explore more of Murphy's work.
