Smashwords book reviews by Ed Griffin

  • A Galaxy Beyond on Oct. 30, 2012

    Rae Purcell is a talented writer and dramatist. Behind this engaging science fiction story is humanitarian theme that comes from Rae's concern for our human species. But you won't see Rae 'preaching.' Her message comes across through the story. I would rate this book with five stars. Rae knows how to write. I recommend this book for your reading enjoyment.
  • Overlooked on Feb. 23, 2013

    An amazing story of injustice in a country that prides itself on being fair. The book is well-written, a page-turner as you read about the evidence that was 'overlooked.' Ed Griffin

    Cora Goodyear knows how to write. She's got the craft down cold. But she also knows the prison situation and the life of female convicts. She writes with realism, but also with a caring hand. Follow her characters thru this story. You won't be bored. 5 stars.
