About J L Blenkinsop

After many years during which I've written plays, pantomimes and short stories for friends, I am now the proud possessor of a step-daughter, attached to a beautiful and intelligent wife.
I've never had a child to look after before, and it's a challenge. She'll be a teenager this month. Watching her trying to work out what life means to her, how to cope with friends and foes, made me write (for the very first time) a novel, just for her.
But this novel is not just for her; it's for me, and it's for anyone who is a child or who has a child who is intelligent and enquiring, who is shy, who has dreams.
It is enjoyable to write about Yifan, and the fantasy element of the story means that there are many more adventures for her to have as she grows up into the balanced, resourceful adult that I know she will become. And so here I am, hoping to share her life - the real life and the life of dreams - with you.

Review by: Will Bly on March 13, 2016 :
The story introduces and draws up an enigmatic superhero character. I believe it serves as a proof of concept -- that the character and premise are interesting enough to conjure up a fuller story and world. I'll be reading more of this author.

I liked the story although it felt like it left off just as it was getting started. I want to know what happens next.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on Aug. 30, 2015 :
A superhero story describing some of the troubles of having certain superpowers. A nicely written tale that is funny in places and tragic in others, making the reader feel empathetic for our humble glass hero and (pardon the pun) shows that a superhero need not just be a see-through, one dimensional character but have depth and a life that is as real as anyone else's.

An interesting and enjoyable short story that is well worth a read.

Good stuff all round.
