Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A Master of Short Stories!" ~Dusty Hitchcock (verified Amazon review)

"This was such a good short to read. I almost wished it was longer! This is great beach reading!" ~Tanya Lu (Vine Voice)

"Still thinking about these characters. Great writing!" ~Amazon verified customer

"The First and Final Thing takes you back in time when life revolved around a hunter/gatherer lifestyle. The reader is drawn into the natural world to a place where peaceful living can be found in the simplicity of survival. It is a tale about escaping the rat race and wealth and finding oneself. It's also about meeting the right person at the right time. I highly recommend this short story." ~Jill Hedgecock, author "Rhino in the Room."

"I really enjoyed this book! It was a fun read. I was drawn in from the start - snappy dialogue, a hint that all isn't as it seems and, most importantly for me, I liked the characters. Fun, engaging, escapist - it made me smile, and want more!" ~THoop
