I was delighted to receive this review of 'Something Called Permafrost' from Reader's Favorite"I enjoyed this quick tale because it tells a complete story in a relatively short space. Molly is the only character, and yet her role in the story is well developed and comes to a dramatic and surprising conclusion.

Best of all, this is a great, quick read that you can enjoy in one sitting, just enough to spark your imagination and immerse you into a scene that's different from your day to day life...
The ambiance and period of the setting serve the story’s dark element well. The Two Faces of Killer Kilbride is an apt title; the townsfolk are enthralled with the lead character so much that they appointed him as the mayor. It seems they made the right choice until this likable man shows his dark side to the ones who are unfortunate enough to be his victims. Kilbride is so infallible that an unexpected turn of events only rattled him a bit. Nevertheless, I’ll say no more, just know that this short story will make readers ponder about the real 'Kilbrides' out there who know how to woo and eventually silent their unsuspected victims.

I just received this terrific review from Book Angel for my Short Story: Jeremiah Kildare and The Wolf of the same County.This is a short supernatural story which fits a remarkable amount in given its length. The writing paints a very quick picture of his current life and how he can to be living like that, and describes the kind of person he is, as well as the bleakness of the land he inhabits. As a character there is little to say about him, but as the only one in the piece, his silence is understandable, and his actions speak loudly for him. The supernatural element is kept until the end, but makes it's impact when it does appear.Overall, an ideal coffee break story to while away 15 minute...
