About the Author

Update Notice: July 14, 2016. Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting our Authors Page. Book four of our Amanda Ackers Adventure series may not be published for another year. Sasha and I apologize for the delay. We have both had some health issues, so, my writing is on hold for a good while. We are very thankful to you all, for supporting our work, which we do for the enjoyment as new authors. Our thanks also, to the many of you who have emailed us with kind comments on our stories and the first three books of our novel series, and those who have requested receiving a pre-release version. We had never thought of doing a pre-release, but thought it was a great idea! It gave many a chance to read book two and three of Amanda’s adventures, before we actually published it. Thanks to all of you! We are most humbled by the response we have received, and thank you from the top, middle and bottom of our hearts! If anyone would like to correspond with us, please shoot us an email when you get the chance, we would love to hear from you. Email us at: GlennAndSasha@gmail.com -------------------------------------------- Hello and thank you for visiting our Smashwords.com page. My name is Sasha Gabriel, and I would like to take a few moments to say a little about Glenn and myself. They say that creativity belongs to the young. Well, not always. Young at heart, I’ll buy, but nothing else. Writing is relatively new for me. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my 60+ years. But writing seemed daunting. How do you write an idea to get over to other people without boring them to death? How do you write conversations that sound like the people who are speaking them? Once I studied the “how to’s” a bit, and with the encouragement from Glenn, my wonderful husband and best friend, I started writing. And I love it. So does Glenn. Writing has opened a door for me that nothing else has – my imagination has soared and I’m absolutely thrilled and thankful, from the bottom of my heart, that others like my writing, as well. Both Glenn and I have written and published very, very short stories (no more than 600 word stories) because these were also entered into a writing contest with that directive. At the same time, both Glenn and I are writing novels (Glenn’s is awesome!!!! Think the depth of Lord of the Rings with the immediacy of Harry Potter and you’ve got it!). But I want to share something with you all… Glenn has battled Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia almost his entire life. That’s a mouthful, for sure, but try living with them on a daily basis! Even so, Glenn has worked to overcome the more serious side effects and his talent in writing, painting, and all over creativity is nothing short of staggering. Honestly… I’m running to keep up with him but I’m mostly just out of breath! So… the bottom line is… we’re all just human with all our challenges and it’s those challenges that make what we create that much better. Please… If you like to read… then write. For writing, get to your keyboard and begin. If you don’t know how start, or where to find ideas for a story or chapter, please contact Glenn. He has helped over 30 people to date get started, and published, and does it for FREE. We think you’ll surprise yourself at your talents if you just give writing a try. And, again… Thank You all for your kind and generous words of appreciation for our stories! It means the world to us! ----------------------------- Glenn here. Just wanted to add that we never thought anyone would even read our work, let alone have downloaded our little stories now over 300,000 times. Because of the kind words from you all, I will continue to write. I have, as Sasha had mentioned, been writing the Amanda Ackers novel series, with Sasha contributing several chapters to each book. I now have 21 other novels started. I had only begun writing the novel for fun, for our grandson Logan. I was not going to publish it, just print it out to give to him. However, with all the encouragement I have received via email, from those reading our little short stories, I have decided to publish the Amanda Ackers series for FREE here on Smashwords.com. The series is also in print on Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com, but of course, being in print, I have to charge for them. My many thanks to all of you, for your continued support. Please feel free to contact Sasha and I at the following email address. We would love to hear from you, even to just say hi: GlennAndSasha@gmail.com

This is another of the author's irresistible works, with their trademark subtle humor, and attention to detail in evidence.

Great story idea! Extremely short and could really use an editor, but clever and amusing nonetheless.

This is a ptruly fun and well written short story. I do wish it were longer, but then perhaps it would lose something?

Really great short story. Fast read. Hold your interest completely. I recommend this one. I also recommend that the author of this story take it and make it longer.
