L.A Speedwing


I am based in Dublin. I run a weekly blog where I discuss about Writing, Arts and other Randomness to provide a relief to my overheated brain otherwise busy writing two children' stories and a Contemporary Fantasy novel for Young Adults. I also published a few short stories and poems in various online magazines. ( See my publications page)

Smashwords book reviews by L.A Speedwing

  • Starting Over on April 28, 2012

    Is there a good way to break up with someone? Not really but there's definitely a way to write about it and that's what this author was able to achieve in this story. We live this break up with the protagonist.
  • Heart over Head over Heels on May 31, 2012

    Nice story. Poetic and thoughtfully written. I like the way the character's feelings moves from head to heart through the story. I only found one problem to this story. Way too short! ;-) But lovely ending.
  • The White Gloves on May 31, 2012

    The sequence of events is a little unusual ( a bit confusing) but we get there in the end. And a nice end. Nice witty writing as well as a polished style "she tried to calm down the wildness that was brewing behind the diamonds." I mean nicely done! Jane Eyre meets Scarlett O'Hara. That would be one way to describe the character.
  • The Orphan and the Shape Shifter on June 08, 2012

    Show us, don't tell us. You're telling rather than showing how poor or lonely Elizabeth is. Also you should start the story by an action scene, or something unusual to keep the reader reading.
  • Melissa and her Prince on Dec. 20, 2012

    Cute little story with simple but effective illustrations.
