I first started writing fiction during the summer holidays in 2009 whilst working in education. During the evening I am a martial artist where I am currently a 2nd Dan black belt in taekwondo. Prior to 2009 I spent several years writing for martial arts websites and magazines interviewing some of the country's most prominent martial artists but made the switch over to fiction after several hundred articles and having several ideas for fiction I wanted to explore.

I love a classic ghost story as you will read in THE LISTENING POST but I like to keep my tongue in my cheek as well in TWO PENNY BLUE.

Coming soon, a full length novel where three women hunt for spooks, men and a few other spirits besides in THE GHOSTHUNTERS CLUB.

Though not usually a reader of short stories, I was attracted to this one because it was identified as a time travel tale and I was not disappointed. This story of two women, living in the same house in widely separated times is both imaginative and thoughtful and it was entertaining to see both the differences and the similarities between the two. One is an independent woman of today dealing with problems with a soon to be ex-husband, the other a Victorian lady who stands to lose everything she values. The only criticism I can offer is that the resolutions to both plots line were a little too neat--but must admit I also enjoyed the way things worked out. A most entertaining read.

This shortish story deserves every one of the five stars I've awarded. First the format & grammar are impeccable which isn't always easy to get right when you're editing your own work. The story entertained and informed, and the characters engaged immediately - something that's vital in a short story! The story deals with two very different women from different centuries who meet by chance in the same house. Both women have serious potentially life changing problems to deal with. I particually enjoyed the Victorian's point of view as she grappled with the wonders of 21st century life. The author manages to add a touch of humour in a couple of places without deviating from the main issues. I can't give too much away obviously, but I throughly enjoyed this story and it left me with a feeling of satisfication and a slight prickling behind the eyes. I look forward to reading more from this author and recommend this little miniature gem whole heartedly.

I liked the story and the characters quite a bit. There were flashes of wit and humor - I think my favorite line was the reference to "a woman called Nigella doing something unmentionable with a wooden spoon." The "Florence discovers the kitchen" section was priceless. I was thoroughly delighted by how adaptable Florence was to her situation, allowing all of us to get on with the story and enjoy her reactions along the way.

Unfortunately, I found myself very distracted and bogged down by some technical issues with the book. I do think that with the benefit of some proofreading and editing, the author could improve their work quite a bit.

The detailed information provided below is in hopes of giving the author some ideas of where improvements could be made. I'm not trying to rip this apart because I did enjoy the story overall, and that's why I gave it 3 stars despite the problems I had with it.

There are several very long sentences that bogged me down right from the very beginning. (Tip to the author: Reading the book to yourself aloud may help with this habit.)

Example: "Florence had become pregnant with George shortly after marrying her husband Johnathan but after the near fatal labour she had giving birth to him, she had not fallen pregnant since and suspected that she may never have any more, thus her intense fear of losing the one child that she did have."

"Mr. Richardson didn't look any the happier at this but Penny was sure that he would prefer the risk of having the operation done by a woman and having the infected appendix causing the searing pain taken out than leave it in and dying a painful death of peritonitis.

This was heading for '3 Stars' until the final third, where I felt it picked up a lot, as I had seen one side of the twist coming but not the other, so I did get a surprise at the end that I wasn't expecting.
