I want to reiterate what the other reviewers have said. Tim has written an amazing, enchanting tale! Interesting characters, good dialogue, and a clever plot all add up to a must read story. Don't be put off by the touch of fantasy. There is an important message for anyone that cares about our world.

A wonderful story! It took me from a dark and frightening beginning to a joyful and funny trip, and then finally home.  But what a place, beautiful but what secrets does it hold? 


tim's characters live and breathe, even the ones who should not, tim easily lets you believe. 


A sweet and magical story, not to be missed. 

Response from the author:

The Promise is a beautifully written short story. It bears a serious theme, yet it’s engaging and funny, and  it’s impossible not to fall in love along with the characters, or fall in love with Sam.

We are treated to an imaginative and creative piece, as tim takes us on an unexpected journey, opens our minds and hearts and leaves us with a wonderful message.  


Go on, read it and see for yourself.. 



Response from the author:

Thanks Boss! I'm so grateful you left a review but more that you fell in love with the characters. They are a lovely bunch, and well Sam is very special. Thanks again! xo

The Promise is a well written story that makes something our brains automatically reject as impossible quite plausible. Dealing with everything from environmental conservation to man's intollerance of being different, it has become my favorite short story. 


I highly recommend reading The Promise!

Response from the author:

Thanks very much Kitt! I'm pleased you enjoyed this. I enjoyed writing it as well.

When I read this story, I didn't know what to expect, as tim took us on a fantastic urban fantasy short story. Set in his native land of Canada, Finn is reminded of a promise he made as a child to Sam. But it's more than a simple promise... it's a family obligation that needed protecting. As we watch Finn, return home, you watch his world change, and you feel the love that happens.


It was a well-crafted story, excellent visuals, and great pacing. A vibrant world that was crafted.

Response from the author:

Thanks very much A.  This story was a joy to write, it was an idea from a Prompt and I very happy people enjoyed it. They they simply allowed it to work in their minds was wonderful.
