Everyone wants to write at least one novel, right? Well, from a very early age, somewhere in my mid teens, when I began to read in earnest, I know that I have. It probably had something to do with that terrible-beautiful teenage angst that many of us pass through. From that time onwards I began to write: novels, short stories - and completed none of them.

S.J. Robinson Hi Philip,
Just read your profile. Congratulations on fulfilling a life-long dream! I agree that sometimes a story just has to cease you in order to see it through to completion. Often the story writes you and not the other way around! Sometimes it is worth the wait... Even if it was a long wait in your case, at least you are making up for it now. Anyway, I wish you every success and blessing with your writing career up ahead!
Best regards from fellow author,
S.J.
