Meet the Author

To write or not to write. It isn't so much a question as it is a need. With so many characters vying for a chance for their story to be told, it's little wonder this California native took the plunge and penned a short romance. Miriam finds pleasure in bringing her characters to life, giving them a chance to tell their story as only they can. She writes what interests her--contemporary and, most recently, sci-fi/fantasy--and always ensures her characters find the happily-ever-after they rightfully deserve.

Wait, this WAS a book, right? 20 pages! I liked the romance lovey-dovey quality of it but that is just because i like that kind of cheesy crap. This is about the length of our stories in our literature books at school and im NOT kidding! Here is the story: 2 people meet at a new years eve party, they play pool, they kiss, they date later THE END! Read it. You will see im not kidding! There wasnt actually much of a story at all! There wasnt even a major problem! Well written, cute story, quick, read-in-10-minutes story! Ive read 2 other "books" by this author and the combined reading time hasnt been more than 2 hours! If you read the description, you've read the book. (The best one was Madison, 107 pages of supernatural lovey-dovey romance! I recommend) i know its free, a good read out loud love story. Thank you for reading!

This was sooooooooooo lame! It was like the first chapter in a book. It was like getting the freakin free sample! I totally advise AGAINST this book.

I was glad this was free. It's a quick read and is just "OK."

Ok, i love m.b. forester's books, but this was pathetic. It jumps right in, and at first you don't know what's going on. Then, you see the plot begin, and then it skips ahead like 2 weeks, 2 more paragraphs and it's done. Wth? Way too short...

This started out as a good book. However, the author soon lost sight of the title & took off on a tangent. It was a poorly constructed plot with ghost characters. You couldn't figure out who was who in the story. It was nebulous, but for free, it was OK. The grammar could have used some help, but better than some of the free books.

I started to read it regardless of the page amount and comments that only gave one star. Let me start telling you why i hated. Ok first it started out as a guy with no social life going to this new year party. So as he gets into he finds his dad's assistant, and she is leaving before midnight. As he goes to the car with her (to make sure she got there okay) for some reason he says you'll never get home. So i'm assuming there was traffic. So she goes to this bar with him to play pool while the traffic ends. So she tells him (i'm assuming he is 20) i'm 3years younger than your dad. So im guessing his dad is about 40. And after they end the pool game, he kisses her (randomly no details) . I thought that was really gross becuz she is about 37 and he is about 20, THATS LIKE KISSING UR MOM ON THE LIPS!!!!!!! And he asks her when can we go on a real date. *barfs* So what i just said there is practially the whole story. No details characters are just robots with the worst life and personality ever. I have read other books from this author and they were great. Im disappointed. I hate this book.

This is a SHORT story but its cute and I liked the characters. It does take a little imagination but I really liked this story.

This story did nothing to develop characters. No plot. No action.

This story is far too short and underdeveloped. It comes across as the beginning chapter to a short story. Unlike other short stories from this author, this story was only told from one point of view. I would not recommend this story.

Its just sad the way this book was written. I could barely understand it. The characters were just robots on a page. Then i deleted it and came to realise now this book is $0.99 it was already bad for a free book, don't waste your time or money.
