VICIOUS CIRCLE
“This short story rockets down the page like a runaway train.”
“One of the most enjoyable reads I've had for some time.”

AND ELVIS WILL MARRY US

“Whew. That's a different kind of story. The way it's told is bizarre, but it's definitely full of life and character.”

“A joy to read, so refreshing after reading so many struggling attempts from newbie writers, God bless ‘em. And damn do I love your voice. It’s not often that I envy a writer his gift, but I do yours.”

    Interesting collection, a bit experimental in places. Vicious Circle and She Went Into The Toilet And Never Came Back were the standouts for me.
