about me

'Everyone is fighting their own battles, so don't be a c***'

I am far from a professional when it comes to writing, I sometimes misspell words and misuse punctuation but I still continue to tap that keyboard, simply because I love it. I enjoy nothing more than sinking into another life for a few hours and after spending so many hours engrossed in the imaginations of other authors I decided I would give it a go myself.

I welcome ALL criticism, all I ask is that it be constructive; 'Its rubbish' just isn't going to help me become a better writer.

In return I promise to be as honest and helpful with your work as I can.

The Catchers

R. Swain

The Catchers are everywhere. After they cruelly destroyed her family, Eliza wont hide anymore.

Eliza Heed is seventeen year old girl with a chip on her shoulder and an increasing impatience for the grim town of Turnley.

Five years after the disappearance of her mother and a normal Monday morning at college brings forth something Eliza and her older sister Katherine could never have gotten away from.

The Catchers are everywhere. After destroying her family, Eliza won’t hide anymore.

Hey, just came for a quick look, I've only read the summary so far but I have to say I love the 'forget realism, enjoy escapism' sentence. It sounds like quite a deep read but this one sentence gave me the 'all is not lost' impression. I'll be back to have a full read shortly but just thought I'd s... view book
