about me

Richard has thrown off the shackles of Company Directorship and is now pursuing his passion for writing.
There is no greater pleasure for him than creating a little bit of something that wouldn't have otherwise been there.
He still continues to be as shy as ever, but being part of such a fantastic site has helped no end.
Richard enjoys a view, especially a mountainous one, walking and listening to music. And, for now, I think that sums him up.

The Snow Lily

Richard Ankers

A journey from the depths of despair, to hopes dashed. Bobby and Lily have only winter in their lives.


Winter 1892.
A terrible act of violence is about to forever alter the fates of a young boy and his infant sister. An act so vile, the ripples from it will cascade through the rest of their lives.

Six years later.
Bobby and his sister, Lily are held captive by the fiends who perpetrated the unquestionably awful act upon their mother, their dear Mummy.
Living, just barely, the children are treated like animals, abused both mentally and physically. The question is why?
As the tale unfolds, Bobby begins to realise that he and Lily are pawns in a greater game. Their escape from captivity is a happiness short lived as one thing after another proves to be less than they hoped. The freedom once longed for becomes more of a burden with each passing day.
Whilst Bobby grows into a deeper malaise, spawned of pain and the hope of seeing his Mummy alive, his sister's erratic behaviour becomes all the more troubling.
When the end game comes, will the two children, who've only ever had each other, summon the joint strength to survive?
From the harshest of winters, a lily will try to bloom.

Hi Darci, here as promised and have just read your first two chapters. Very good first line. It is a little bit in your face and memorable, that's good. We are then shown what it is to be Andy. A slight glimpse at her work and the fact that her so-called superiors do not rate it. It might have be... view book

Hi SJ; congratulations on having the most inventive first chapter I've read in a very long while. I've really enjoyed what I've read. In Dandel and his scraping, I had visions of a Terry Gilliam type film where the poor guy's clinging on for all he's worth. The scraping, and union of, was suc... view book

Hi Jessica; I have just read to the end of full chapter four. You have a good story building here and have already had some really good advice by the looks of things. Kate is right about combining chapter two and three into one. You don't want them to be too unequal in length. What Jack says abou... view book

Hi Lindsay, I have just read to the end of chapter three. I really apologise as I did not know you had a follow up The Priest's Tale. I would have read some of this a lot earlier if I had. I enjoyed it very much too. I think that is down to the seamless transition of Kayt'an from book one to two.... view book

Hi Ajit; here as promised and have ended up reading the lot. I hardly ever do that so well done. I must confess that I did not intend to read all of this but could not help myself. The story is incredibly compelling and by the time I'd gotten to the Abhimanyu's accident I was absolutely hooked. Y... view book
