After the doubts of yesterday, came this glowing tribute from a lady in New York. There is no finer tribute than from somebody who does not know you or has an interest at stake.

This was a story I thought would not really have a chance, it is far from my usual adventure types and is not in my other strong suit of Ghosts. Yet like The story that shall have no name – see the article. It has caught the imagination of at least one reader.

The picture shows Lac La Biche on the night of November 11th, 2009. The lake and surrounding area feature in some of my stories. This is the lake of the double shooting in Pat Canella (the dockland murders) as well being the lake in Nerja.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey Of Faith, April 2, 2012

This review is from Nerja (Kindle Edition):
This was an excellent short-short story. In fact, I finished reading it during my commute home on the subway.

The best way to describe this story is: It is a story about faith.
It involves two different men from two different cultures. One White and one Native American/Cree. Both were placed in an extremely dangerous situation and both depended on their faith to bring them out safely.

This wonderfully short story answered the question: “Who do you call on and cling to in the time of trouble?” I expected more, but “Nerja” was so skillfully written additional words would’ve ruined it.

Short and to the point, this was an excellent and highly recommended read.

    After discussion with a friend, I was convinced to bring Nerja back from the dead pile. This month (July) it has been my best seller with 2 sales.
