The idea that love can be much better than what we see all around us.

Member Since
April 2008


Early in life I met a girl who took my breath (and my heart) away. Years later I realized that we still shared the magic, still measured happiness by the time we spent together. I also realized that this success was a thing of her creation, a system she had devised. Naturally, I analyzed it into its component parts, and that made me very interested in love stories. But I couldn’t find anything that matched what we were living. That made me sad for the women we knew who wanted more in love stories and kept on reading as a way of searching. Few had high hopes, only pleasure in persistence. In 2005 I read a novel that I chose almost at random from a library shelf. Written by a best-selling author, it was well written, well plotted and I was ho ...more

Pocket Piece Cameo (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: Note: this is a change of pace chapter and also, I hope, a very literary one, in a novel (yet to be publisheed) that is essenially a coming-of-age love story, one that examines whether love can recover from a perfectly planned betrayal.

Terra Hi Rob,
Thank you so much for the high praise you give my review. I'm ever so glad you enjoyed it. I really have to say that it took me by surprise to find such a wonderful love story written from the male point of view. I really don't think there are many men on this earth that know the difference between love and lust and they fall for their partner for all the wrong reasons. Your book was completely refreshing. When I read a book I read from cover to cover and live the story so I can truely give an honest opinion of what I think. Please know that I loved living your story and will enjoy more in the future with it staying in my personal collection. Thanks also for signing the book.
