I live in Melbourne, Australia and have a full-time office job, but my real passion is writing. I write on the train to and from work most days in a notepad and type it up on the weekend. My email address is if you want to email me about any of my books. Thanks to everyone who has left a review.

Smashwords book reviews by Marilyn McPherson

  • Charlie's Haunting on July 31, 2011

    Very well written and creepily good. I felt more and more uncomfortable as the tension was slowly turned up. Well done to the author on an entertaining short read.
  • Exterium on Aug. 31, 2011

    I thought this was a well written and imaginative adventure for children in the parallel universe of Exterium. Although it is not aimed at adults, I still enjoyed the sections which described the technological advancements in Exterium. It is obvious that the author put a lot of care into imagining her new world. I also liked the way the story linked in with real-world events on earth eg Roswell.
  • Voices - A Special Abilities Novel Series on Sep. 30, 2011

    Brad, I really enjoyed your book. It was fast paced and kept leading me to unexpected places. I thought your ideas were original and most importantly, you have a great gift for story telling. I could visualize many of the scenes clearly, and I really liked the giant kitty cat. I think when the book is free, people should forgive a few errors here and there. Thanks for sharing your work.
