More About the Author
Since retirement I have dabbled successfully in a number of different ventures including photography and building my own Teardrop Camper. Then a little over three years ago I started writing SPLINTERED DOORS. I believe everybody has at least one good story in them just waiting to come out, and SPLINTERED DOORS was mine. Off and on for the next three years I would write, rewrite, and edit my story many dozens of times, using the Internet to confirm and verify information drawn upon from numerous sources.
After three years, almost to the day, from typing my first letter I finished SPLINTERED DOORS. It has been quite the labor of love, and I have loved every minute of the process. There were times I began my day typing at 5:00 AM, and many times still banging away at the keyboard well after midnight, wanting to get that last thought on paper before calling it a day. SPLINTERED DOORS started out as a gift to my wife, a school teacher of 25+ years, who told me it was too good not to share. A short time later it was available on the Internet as an ebook. And the rest is history still waiting to be written...

I picked this up through my Kindle because the title caught my attention. The books started off with a good premise, but I think there was extraneous detail. There is a difference between moving a story along with salient points, and getting bogged down with details that do little to further the plot line. But the story does start to move along later in the book; and has a satisfying ending.
The book needs work - there are numerous spelling mistakes (since rectified by the author as I discovered I was reading an older Kindle version of the book) and clunky sentences. I believe if sentences could be tightened up, the book would flow better and faster. Tense changes was an issue too; but with some work, that could be easily fixed.
As a confessional it seems to lack detail in areas that I think the wife would have pressed for. For example, when he tells her about his time with the psychologist and the ethical questions that he had to answer, he says that some of his answers surprised even him. If I were his wife, I'd be asking what those answers were. If they surprised him and he lives with himself, how much more would she be surprised?
All in all, it was a solid read; and if the author were to tighten it up, could be an excellent book.
