Meet the Author

Sherry Donacy was born in the heart of the Deep South to Protestant ministers. As she grew, her parents' bigoted and often psychologically abusive beliefs came more and more into conflict with her own. At an early age -- despite being on her high school's honor roster and having several scholarship offers -- she ran as far away as she could and was homeless for several years on the streets of Seattle. Eventually, with the help of a local Wiccan priestess, Sherry realized her potential and acquired her GED. Sherry works as a notary and wedding officiant, though writing has always been her creative outlet. She has a vast portfolio of unpublished and forthcoming works with Isaac's Bible being the first release.

Very disjointed. Reads as if someone took 4 pages from the beginning, 3 pages from the middle then 1 page from the end of a book that would be an epic 1200 page saga and tried to re-release it as a short story. I'm happy it was free because if I'd paid even one dollar for it, I'd be angry. So very sad that in the past 10 years, literature has declined to this level.

This story has too many gaps and is missing something. Horror is not just to terrify with no rhyme or reason, there has to be reasoning for the story to make sense and this story is lacking all reasoning. Also if you have to write a blurb at the end to explain the main plot device that is clue number one it isn't finished.

This story had a LOT of promise. If rewritten and explained more it would get a higher score.

This was a surprisingly original and excellent short horror story of a young boy going on a shopping trip with his mother. In fact, I was completely thrown off course as we learn of the young lad who is told constantly that his a brat and troublesome child by his mom. However, there’s much more too this as we learn of the mother and her beliefs, and the way in which she brings up the boy. This part brings forward a sense of injustice, and we feel some sympathy for the child. At this point I thought I knew where the story was going but instead we are set on a very different track as the mother takes the young boy shopping with her. And it is what happens within the store where the story really picks up pace. Backed up with a strong accurate afterword to fill in for anyone who does not know too much of the history of the time (can’t say too much myself here without giving away a vital piece of plot) this is a far above average read here on smashwords…HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
