More About the Author

There are two personality traits I can recall possessing for just about as far back as my memory will serve. The first is a love of writing and the second is a malicious sense of humor.

Since childhood, I have been the person who roots for the bad guy in movies and laughs when Bambi's mom gets shot. I take interest in the flaws of a character more than the heroic characteristics, which have a tendency to bore me. I find humor in places I probably shouldn't.

I started writing short stories and screenplays shortly after I learned to construct a sentence and haven't stopped since. As a high school student I wrote and shot home movies in my spare time while performing stand up comedy weekly at a talent show. I also wrote short stories with titles like Teacher Slayers (for which I am still astounded that I was not expelled).

My writing is typically bleak and violent with a fun, satirical edge that should tickle the funny-bones of anyone who is as sick as I am.

This story is intriguing from the very start. Ten photographs a man wants to show to his ex. The tension builds with each photo we see, and the characters get deeper and deeper. Cool ending I didn't see coming, and incredibly well-written. It's a short story, so you can blaze through it. I personally sensed hints of noir, Clive Barker and Julio Cortázar, but it's none of these things; it's its own thing, and a very good thing, if you ask me.

This story itself is like a snapshot. It's a very quick read, perfect for a lunch break. The mystery of the photographs had me on the edge of my seat, with a satisfying twist at the end.

What captures the imagination about The Tenth Photograph is the little details. We've all glanced back at an old box of photographs, reliving our lives with every snapshot, wishing we could catch one last backwards glance. With every photograph, we learn a little more about the narrator...only to be surprised at story's end. I won't say more lest I spoil this piece but it's well worth a read.

With short stories like this so much depends on a twist at the end making the story end in an unexpected way. Unfortunately for me the ending was very predictable however if you do not see the ending coming it is not a bad short story. It is well written and the tension does build but for me ultimately disappointing.

I love this authors writing style, short, snappy and mostly funny!

A tale of a lost love trying to regain interest.

9 photos are shared over coffee.... we never get to the 10th to show the true nature of what is going on.

Kept in suspense until the last sentence, very clever!

Not even close to the twist I was expecting!
