About Rath Dalton

Hello, I’m Rath Dalton. Yes, Mom was a Basil Rathbone fan so that explains the name.

I hope you enjoy my work here on Smashwords. I can’t stop writing anyway, so if you keep coming back there should always be something new. By the way, thanks; it is an honor to be allowed to have some measure of access to the controls on the entertainment system in your life. I will try not to let you down.

Different authors have different takes on writing. I see it as a process where the writer needs to touch and tickle stored memories in the reader’s head, memories that bring out emotions and feelings that turn a shopping list of incidents into something real. It is a multi-tasking process that can go easily awry. I liken it to driving a bus and doing pantomime at the same time except the driver never knows for sure if he got his point across. At best, he knows that some people went for a ride. Occasionally there is positive feedback and that’s fuel in the tank.

So hop aboard, let’s go on a trip. There should be interesting stops along the way. If you like what you read, write a positive review here on Smahswords and if you wonder why I was flapping my arm as we rolled around that last bend, ask me about it at

Review by: James Jenkins on Jan. 25, 2016 :
I found the story to realistic, and will the ending was unexpected, it was also unrealistic. I felt it detracted from the very real challenges the character was facing, as are many very real people.
