Meet the Author

I was born in a small caravan in a field in the north of Scotland. After such an inauspicious yet somehow romantic introduction to life, I have gone on to do many things. I have served in the merchant marine, been a professional engineer, a military officer and an entrepreneur. I also have a PhD in management philosophy and can research the backside off most things! I now live, in North Yorkshire, England, with my wife and young son. Throughout my eclectic career, I have always written, believing fervently in the power of the written word, and I have previously published a non-fiction work with Palgrave Macmillan. I now bring together a set of rich experiences, a creative research-based outlook to plot construction, and a dash of essential seasoning, to bring you fiction such as River of Judgement, Gloria and now, Sarah! The latter two short stories being inspired by the writings of Anton Chekhov.

Great short story, those complaining there is no ending I suggest you read it again. The ending is the pperfect fit for this story. It takes you on a strange and twisted ride with a surprise at the end for some, or a perfect destination for those that figure it out ahead of time.

I didn't think it made a bit of sense. I can't really go into detail about the problems I have with this story with out ruining it for others but this short has some major issues, clarity being foremost.
