Hello, my name is Brian Paine. I have been studying literature for the past four years now and I've decided to start putting some of my short stories on the internet in preparation of a book I plan to release later next year. I write mysteries and science fiction, or basically anything I find out of the ordinary, with the idea of exploring characters that deal with the problems and realities that they live with. If you liked my story, feel free to pass it on to someone you know. I would enjoy reading any critiques or reviews you might have. I'm looking forward to releasing more stories in the coming months.
