  • The Death Clock - a short story on Nov. 26, 2011

    Nice One. Had everything a good short story should have. And the ending was just right.
  • Samantha Smiles on Aug. 06, 2013

    I enjoyed it. Not the kind of book I would normally read, but I was compelled to check it out, and it was worthwhile. I learned a lot about girls, which leads to knowing more about women, which is ALWAYS helpful. Nice work! Four Stars!
