"Between the horses of love and lust we are trampled underfoot" As September 1st 2008 ushered in I was overwhelmed by a sense of unfulfillment. I had just turned 23, and for all my plans and aspirations I realised that I was nothing more than a deflating balloon, finally letting out all the unnecessary air and contemplating my future with a level head. I love to write, and I am working on a series of short stories and a novel. I am most comfortable writing character/thriller fiction, and all forays into other genres have often led to disaster. I have joined Protagonize as a way of seeking feedback for my fiction. For the stories and the prose that come with them. I have not offered up my work to critics, so I urge you to comment once you have read, even if it is just to say whether or not you enjoyed my work.
