I was four when I decided to be a writer. For forty-six years, though I suffered from life-gets-in-the-way-osis. Cured in 2010, I now write in the speculative thriller genre (horror, science fiction, thriller, psychopaths, mystery, in the style of Stephen King). Since then I've published several novels including conceiving and co-project managing the Amazon #1 best-selling anthology "From The Indie Side".
I'm passionate about the art of writing the short story, and have written dozens of stories and novellas-many published award winners in Australia, USA and UK. I also pen book and film reviews and author interviews for US Suspense Magazine, as well as other popular Australian and International sites.
Most days I'm your average mother and wife living in Perth, Western Australia, but my twist thriller storylines I blame on my darn imagination that constantly ventures into the crevices of dark worlds, whether I want to go there or not.
I hope you enjoy my stories, if you do please spread the word.

Back Again (The Short Story)
by Susan May
Between life and death lies fate.
COULD YOU WATCH A LOVED ONE DIE TO SAVE THEIR LIFE?
"Dawn had lost count of the number of times she’d lived through this. Every time it hurt as much as the time before. Eventually, she thought that she must become immune to the events, and that her heart wouldn’t shatter into a thousand, million pieces—
But it always did."

As a speculative fiction fan, I was eager to read this anthology. There are some thought provoking ideas here & some cheeky & fun twists too. A couple had me back for a second read. At $3.99 you will have yourself a bargain & take a trip to many different worlds courtesy of some talented authors.

This is an impressive Australian collection. Having recently read what are considered quality Australian short story anthologies, I found myself quite bored. Many simply had no story to them. This collection, however, is filled with wonderful stories, created with great skill. David Vernon, the Editor certainly has a great feel for a good story. Send this book to overseas friends (or Aussie friends) & share a wonderful & fascinating view of Australia.
