    Hi. Really enjoyed the twist at the end of Doctor John. Only one read so far. A real sense of the moment, could almost feel the sea and taste the salt; not forgetting the vinegar! Will return and read the others.

    This is my kind of writing. I cursed that the first story was so short. By far the best descriptions on Authonomy. The meat in ' Seasoned' was quite sinister.
    You have a real gift for writing. I love your stories. But I prefer full length novels. I wish you had one. Have you?

    Hi Gabby, These gradually mount to a chuckling hilarity. I liked how you concentrate on the awful weather rather than the doctor’s excessive and finally suspicious care for his patient. The cross-dressing seemed like a joke at first but the focus on the dress and Mike’s promotion was revealing. Bizarre and funny! Shelved – Katherine (The Swan Bonnet)

    These were very enjoyable! I especially enjoyed Wasp, we all wonder what would happen with the lotto don't we? Well written and entertaining! Each one is individual and could stand alone. Thanks for a nice read!

    A most enjoyable collection of short stories which are finely crafted, well paced and well written. You have a vivid imagination and you switch topics with ease. The receipe for a Leg looks interesting and I agree with Dr. John about pregnant women. Backed with pleasure.

    Short stories are challenging at best, and I think it shows a great skill to put them together as well as you have. Each one is a slice of delicious fiction, and your strong voice makes them stand out from the crowd.

    Backed with pleasure.

    SUNDAY MORNING MUSE This is an interesting collection of short stories. I started with the doctor who mutters about pregnant women, then read the one about the recipe for the leg, then the one about George and the ladies room (liked the way he makes up stories for people on buses; I do that too because of that same song). You have a good writing style for short stories; just enough detail to set scenes and establish characters; not so ...

    Why not call the collection: Recipes for Open Minded People? it changes the emphasis from the author musing to the reader.
    Keep writing, I am enjoying these stories.

    Welcome aboard, Gabby. This website will improve your writing craft, if you allow it. You have to think of your pitches as your sales tool to grab the casual reader's eyes. The short pitch does not exist. With the long pitch, expand a story arch and then break it down into smaller paragraphs so it reads faster. End it with one succinct question to pique interest. Perfecting your pitches is how you climb in ranking to gather more exposure and ...
