Reviews by Derek Smith About Derek Smith: I am a semi-retired technical author, an avid reader and fluent in both English and American (as well as French and German)!
Business took me all over the northern hemisphere, flying gave me plenty of time to read. I wish e-books had been available at the time.
Poor spelling, grammatical errors and incorrect punctuation irritate me. If you expect people to read and enjoy your stories please have the courtesy to proof read them or have them edited by someone competent.
I enjoy stories with a well crafted plot, developed characters and which show some imagination. How my enormous tab A fitted into slot B, thirteen times in three hours is not, in my opinion, part of a good story! Stories with feelings, compassion and care for the characters within will score high when judged by my standards.
