In My Own Words:
I am the author of the horror vampire novelette Beneath the Willow available on Amazon kindle.

All types of fiction, but a fan of King, Koontz and Herbert. I love varied films and a good comedy.

Sex and Crime: Oliver's Strange Journey by Oliver Markus
4.0 out of 5 stars Self-destruction, 17 July 2014
Sex and Crime: Oliver's Strange Journey, certainly lives up to the title.

I enjoyed the style of writing, it was conversational and thereby made it easier to connect with some of the raw and dark themes that are the foundation of Oliver's journey. The story is one of addiction, sex and crime, with the drug addiction of Oliver's girlfriends a dominant theme.

The story started off fresh and lively, with the reader learning about Oliver's love of games and his internet site. He was making good money even if by illegal means as a hacker.

Agony is a story about powerlessness, fear and confronting something beyond imagining.

She comes across as fragile, you feel for her plight and want her to find a way through. As the story… Read more
Max Cutter and The First Black Book: Book 1 of the&hellip by JACOB TATE
5.0 out of 5 stars Fear and humour, 30 Jun 2014
Max Cutter and The First Black Book is an original and unique story concept. I enjoyed the light hearted banter. Max Cutter came across as a Bruce Campbell with an amusing dash of nerd type of character, I liked this. He wasn't your one-dimensional gung-ho hero. The comedy was balanced well and there were some really creepy moments.

The story opening grabbed me and I didn't know whether to chuckle at Max's predicament or panic for him. This is character that can stay cool and collected even in the most dire situations. A well written story. A worthy read if you want fear and humour as a combination.
