What I’ve written

I’ve had a request from Shepherd.com to write a post about my favourite books around a theme. I’ve given them my favourite fictional monsters. It will be up on their site within the next four weeks or so. They’re also featuring my book, Muse.
What I’ve read (reviews)
Scientists hail autoimmune disease therapy breakthrough by Ian Sample (The Guardian) This is good news of a great step forward in lupus treatment. So far, it’s only been done with five patients. Their own T cells were altered to fight back against rogue B cells (the cause of autoimmune disease like lupus.) Their severe lupus went into remission, leaving their immune systems behaving normally.
The Overpayment short story by Rhayn Scorpio-Rhys (Madd Fictional) Calling customer service can be very frustrating at times. In this amazing story, someone calls customer service at human existence, after receiving a notice to say their LIFE will be discontinued. It’s a great story, of a frustration everyone has known, in a situation no-one has known.
With a Touch of the Tapestry short story by Bridgette (Bridgette Tales) Bridgette builds a beautifully-constructed fantasy story around the actual news story of the Queen’s death. It’s a story of magic, destiny, sacrifice, and faithfulness to family tradition.
It Lives in Kentucky short story by Lady Jabberwocky This is a cute little short (100 word) story about an alien with limited understanding of Earth. It’s humorous science fiction, a quick, fun, read.
A look at a book
