Review

PG is too tame for some readers. 'Willful Women' is a collection of short stories focusing on the more fun and adult sort of entertainment, murder, scandal, corruption, and of course, sex. With the theme of the willing and able woman for many adventures, Randall S. Smith tells many pulpy and fun stories that will give readers a great deal of fun. "Willful Women" is a fine collection, not to be missed.

From the Author

Several years ago I had a dream in which I was walking through the foothills of New England, enjoying the colorful autumn colors. In the dream I had just published my second novel and had gone there to celebrate. When I awoke with a great sense of fulfillment, I realized my sub-conscious was telling me to take up creative writing. I pursued the dream and have loved it.

Rather than write indoors and at a desk, I prefer using my outdoor balcony and a rocking chair. The passing clouds and singing Floridian birds give me inspiration and help in allowing my mind and imagination to wander. I lose all track of time and watch the story as it unfolds in my mind. I write it down as I witness it, then rewrite, edit, polish and rewrite some more. This book is the result.

More About the Author

I write pulpy, adult tales about people behaving badly.

While my stories may not all be politically correct, they are growing in popularity and are a fun and adult-type of entertainment. With the theme of willful women, including wartime nurses, a pirate queen, assassins, secret agents, and starcraft pilots, most readers will find themselves either wishing they could be one of these women, or else wanting one of them. Some tales contain elements of domination and submission, and several are appropriate only for those age eighteen and over.

Willful Women now has over 1600 followers on Twitter.

- The Midwest Book Review

Strong women are specific to no era of history. "Willful Women II" is a collection of short stories from Randall S. Smith as he writes of women in many stages of history from the distant past to a possible future, offering women looking at the odds and doing what they can to break through it all and make quite the difference. "Willful Women II" is a strong pick for general fiction collections focusing on short stories.

These stories are action packed with twists and turns to keep the reader guessing what will come next. How Mr. Smith comes up with the variety of story-lines is amazing. I relished reading each and every one just to see what in the world would happen. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the collection, a lot of conflict, action, romance, drama, and humor. I recommend Willful Women to anyone who is looking for a good read. Definitely 5 stars in my opinion.

I had high hopes for this collection - I love stories about strong women and I love short stories. Unfortunately Randall Smith's women are caricatures not characters, with neither nuance nor depth. Not even strong enough to be plywood instead of cardboard. Even more unfortunately his plots are at best derivative and unoriginal. In the first two stories there were unlikely coincidences and even more unlikely scenes where dead bodies were strewn through the landscape without any obvious notice or followup by the authorities.

I read the first 4, skimmed through 2 more and deleted the book from my Kindle. Too bad.

I made it through about a 1/3 of the book (into the 3rd story) before abandoning this collection of stories. The writing style was simplistic and geared toward a young adult or teen audience.

I had high hopes based on reviews of this book but was disappointed by the lack of any depth reflected in the characters. I was equally disappointed by the superficiality of the plot. Half way through the second story, I abandoned any hope that the book was going to get any better and deleted it from my Kindle. Really poor effort and not worth paying for.
