Well, here goes. I'm a guy who grew up loving books and in middle age I finally thought I can write a book too.

How hard can it be? Right?

The answer is very hard but we'll come back to my creative writing masterclass at another time.

Millie was inspired by the poem "Matilda" by Balzac. I used the line "Matil

Eddie Owens and 32 other people liked Jessica Woodbury's review of Black Buck:
Black Buck by Mateo Askaripour
