Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Hmmm. I vaguely remember it. I was young then. It had to have been at least 30 years ago. These days I write more poetry and prose though.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I cannot remember the very first story, but I do know that when I read my first Amanda Quick novel, I knew that I loved romance novels. I have been reading them ever since. I have always liked strong, sassy heroines too.

Smashwords book reviews by Amaryllis Holloway-Turman

  • Roses for Cassandra on May 01, 2012

    This was a cute,sweet short story. At the end, I was left wanting more so that I could stay with the characters a little bit longer.
  • Interlude on May 09, 2012

    It seemed that the main character Ella is a mess. Plus there were not any development of story's characters to create an emotional bond with the reader. I think the premise of this story is good, however, a lot more could have been done with the story.
  • The Bridge on May 09, 2012

    I think that this short story describes the emotional conflict that can arise when two friends are deciding if they want to develop a more intimate relationship. Like with a lot of the short stories I read, I am left wanting more.
