Steve Carrick


Since 1983 I always wanted to write a book, tried a couple of times to put something down on paper but nothing seemed to flow. In the early nineties I started writing poetry which was more successful and two were published in collections. The desire to write something bigger remaiined and in 2007 my first novel The Shiorel Legacy took shape. I would like to say it was easy to do and initially the words flowed freely but as the plots thickened writing became harder but in late 2008 I completed it. During the writing of my sequel I occasionally went back and edited or modified the first book trying to keep everything in order and avoid conflicts. Hopefully people who read my work will forgive my lack of experience and see the story for what it is. One friend who read some of my work said I needed to use a thesaurus, maybe I did but I wanted a book that people would read without scratching their heads too much wondering what some words mean. My next upload will be a murder mystery and is in the final stages of completion. Please, if you read any of my work your feedback will be very appreciated as it will help me decide where my faults lie and encourage me to improve my writing,
