Overview

She was recently married, after a long and smooth courtship. At one point he had given her a car, a beautiful Lexus, and he had sent flowers to her office quite regularly—large, ornate (nearly monstrous) bouquets, mostly fat congregations of roses delivered by messenger. Really, it was a courtship to stand back and be impressed by with the end a given, judging by all those expensive signs. And now she seemed content, at least from what I could tell.
She was tall, reserved, and had the most beautiful hair I had ever seen, so dark it hinted blue in places, when the light was right (which it seemed to be most of the time). And graceful.
Then one day, it was a little after ten in the morning and I was in my research library wrapping up the inventory of new arrivals—so it must have been a Tuesday—she knocked softly on the partially open door, entered, closed the door behind her, and said she wanted to talk to me. I said, sure, and stopped what I was doing to look at her. She came up to me, almost tentatively; her face, still and serious, and her steps, slow and deliberate—as if gathering strength—told me that what she had come to tell me was important. Three feet away from me she stopped and took me in with a calm that seemed the fruit of a deep resolve, eyes still and brown and holding mine. “Charles,” she said. “I know you neither want nor need to know this, but the truth is that I love you.”

Meet the Author

Ulf is a Swedish name that once meant Wolf. So, yes, Wolf Wolf, that’s me.

I was born Ulf Ronnquist one snowy night in late October, in one of those northern Swedish towns that are little more than a clearing in the forest.

Fast forward through twenty Swedish years, ten or so English ones, and another twenty-four in the US and you’ll find me in front of an immigrations officer conducting the final citizenship interview, at the end of which he asks me, “What name would you like on your passport?”

And here I recall what a friend had told me, that you can pick just about any name you want at this point, and I heard me say “Ulf Wolf.”

That’s how it happened. Scout’s honor.

Of course, I had been using Ulf Wolf as a pen name for some time before this interview, but I hadn’t really planned to adopt that as my official U.S. name. But I did.

I have written stories all my life. Initially in Swedish, but for the last twenty or so years in English. To date I have written six novels, four novellas and two scores of stories; along with many songs and poems.

My writing focus these days is on life’s important questions (in my view): Who are we? What are we doing here? And how do we break out of this prison?

    Truth

    It was ok. After the actual love declaration it held my interest because I wanted to see the man's reaction. But after that the book seemed to drag its feet. Its all innocent. If you need to kill time and have nothing better to do then I would suggest this, but if you're looking for something captivating and worth your precious time, then keep looking. Hope this helped. :)
