About C M Weller

C M Weller has decided to keep their full identity a secret until such time as one of their works becomes a bestseller. They share a house in Burpengary East with two children and a spouse who sometimes thinks they're insane.
Every October, C M Weller releases a free short story, in honour of both their birthday and All Hallow’s Read.
Unfortunately, this author has managed to avoid doing all the things that make author bios interesting reading. Sorry. However, ze has been publishing stories via Smashwords since 2012, and has an Amazon-exclusive novelette titled Free Baby.
This writer is allergic to almost all forms of alcohol (long story), too asthmatic to indulge in tobacco, and in possession of a body chemistry that makes the more interesting drugs problematic at best. Thusly, their chief addiction is their own imagination.

"Excellence is a continuous journey that never ends" but as they say again "genius has limits"

Review by: Ann Michaels on Dec. 27, 2016 :
This story has so much truth contained in it that it hurts. Girls and women have all these opposing structural forces pressing upon us, and yet, there is this unwritten expectation that we aspire to some type of unattainable perfection, whilst working, bringing up a family and making heaps of money. We must conform to some current ideal of beauty and fashion and we need to be smart too, and also, nurturing, understanding and uncomplaining. Suddenly I feel like going on a rampage.

Review by: Mike White on Oct. 04, 2016 :
This story does an excellent job of demonstrating the horror of trying to live up to societal expectations, particularly for women. The demands never stop and the new requirements never stop. There is no point at which you 'make it.' There's just a new ladder to climb.

The story also demonstrated the fact that women face a lot of genuinely conflicting demands. The author manages to condemn those attitudes and the pressures placed on women while still making this a cautionary tale for the girls who might go down this path one day.

The story reminded me a lot of myself. Except for the part about being rich.
