Review: A collection of suspenseful tales – a woman gets a taxi home and meets a strange driver who gives her the creeps. A boy wants a crystal ball, but is there more to it than meets the eye. The stories have definite potential, with some good ideas. Occasionally though, it felt like the plot was being forced slightly to suit the story. Because they are short stories, I know that it can be difficult to include all the information that you want in them and keep the story a certain length. All of the short stories had a paranormal or slightly creepy theme and I enjoyed most of them. There were a couple that I didn’t really get but I’m sure there would be something for everyone in this collection. There were a few inconsistencies in the stories, but despite these inconsistencies, I enjoyed the collection.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
