" I felt the same blah feeling. As a writer I take all these accolades as a kind of false narrative. Maybe it’s all about selling books! "

"I know everyone seems to love this book. But I do not. I found it impossible to finish. The descriptions of the natural habitat are very grandiose. In my mind those intricate descriptions were the only high point.

This book is overwhelmingly sad. Chil" Read more of this review »

“... Wickard's novel colorfully illuminates the two sychronized protagonists, each displaying profound characteristics: Sami has trouble adjusting to her new life and Smitty balances his secret life with his normal one, with a (living) wife and infant daughter at home...

... assertive characters with distinct backgrounds provide a solid fountaion for the story of a killer on the hunt."

Kirkus Review February 24, 2012”
Douglas Wickard

~EDITORIAL REVIEW~
" ... Wickard will have readers on edge ..."
" ... a methodical, white-knuckled grip of the throat, the tension getting tighter."
"A leisurely paced but ultimately rewarding, riveting thriller."

Douglas Wickard, Perfect

“What once I threw away with disdain, without a second thought, I now cherish with a heightened sensitivity. How stupid our young thoughts of immortality. How dangerous our contempt, our judgment, our arrogance regarding what all of us will ultimately become, and much sooner than we think. As if in youth, we hold some secret to life and love and eternal happiness. As if what we bring to the table will always be on our terms, our contracts neatly spelled out, a happily-ever-after always guaranteed. Now, how enticing to feel this spark of remembrance, this heat, this flame set afire in my heart, an alarm sounding through my soul.”
Douglas Wickard, Aberrant: The Queer Diaries

Douglas Wickard

“Everything a writer learns about the art or craft of fiction takes just a little away from his need or desire to write at all. In the end he knows all of the tricks and has nothing to say.”
Raymond Chandler

“Technique alone is never enough. You have to have passion. Technique alone is just an embroidered potholder.”
Raymond Chandler

“What and how much had I lost by trying to do only what was expected of me instead of what I myself had wished to do?”

Douglas Wickard Thank you for ALL the 5* Reviews of A PERFECT HUSBAND! I hope my Goodreads friends will take it down from their shelves, take a read and get enlisted in a thriller compared to Jonathan Kellerman, Jeffery Deaver, Stephen King and, just today...James Patterson. I'm not on any KDP program so I can't offer discounts but I can offer my gratitude for being my friend and sharing books with me. Thank you, Goodreads family.
