About Randy Noble

My life has been one of finding what I would love to do for a living.

I tried university soon after high school, film and video major, but was not ready so I dropped out.

I had a strong desire to work in the film industry, in some capacity, for many years. After dropping out of University, I thought I would opt for film school, instead of the drawn out University method of teaching one about making films. But the expense of it turned me off, and it never happened.

After a few years of crappy, minimum wage jobs, I needed to do something so I decided to go back to University, but as a Computer Science major. I graduated in 2000 and have worked at a few companies, currently in the health industry as a Programmer/Analyst. It's not something I want to do for the rest of my life.

I always thought it was movies I was interested in, but it is the creation of stories where my passion lies. If I'm not writing it, I'm thinking it, over and over in my head, playing it out. I've written some short stories and one novel so far. All my short stories are free to download.

Acknowledgments: Thanks very much to Karen Kindrachuk from www.solepurpose.ca for the awesome Surviving The Theseus cover design.

It was an enjoyable read and I feel like your main character was pretty realistic as far as his personality and thoughts go.

Some of the gadgetry, particularly the Jeep's dashboard functions seemed a little too James Bond for me, and I would have enjoyed some explanation for the phone call's origin and perhaps some explanation of what came over the bridge.

You definitely have strong skills in imagery and in engaging your reader. Well done!

Finally! A hero who does what everyone in the theater screams at them to do! Great Read!

****Spoiler warning****

Why not 5 stars? Bro...you didn't explain the time warp phone call!

This was one of those stories where I had to stop reading at night so I could wait until it was daylight. LOL The beginning is set up with a guy on a cell phone who gets this mysterious phone call warning him that he needs to follow the caller's instructions or else he'll end up dead.

I do agree with the other reviewer who said that unlike other stories where the main character does something stupid, this guy was smart. I can't say too much without giving the story away, but let's say that what was coming was indeed as freaky as one would expect.

Now I want to read everything by this author. I hope he continues to write more!

This was a real fun story.

All I could think about while reading this was when you watch a thriller or a horror movie and you're yelling at the screen calling people idiots for not doing what YOU would be doing. Over the Bridge was one of the very few stories I can remember that the main character in a horror setting wasn't a complete idiot and did everything the right way, the way I would do it, haha!

I also liked the little time warp aspect too. It added a little more fun and intrigue to the plot. It was equally insignificant as it was significant ... I liked that. After reading this story, that seemingly ridiculous sentence will make more sense.

Good job, Randy - 5 stars!
