      “I received in exchange for an honest review.

      This story shines a light on James’, a Guyanese immigrant in Sweden, search for the right woman. His self-doubt and even the way he thinks; was different than I expected. The cultural differences between James and Maude, plus their slowly evolving efforts to make their relationship work; was a little too much at first. It was hard for me to feel immersed in the storyline for the first chapter, but, the pace quickly picked up after that. This is unlike a lot of the romance novels I read, and, that’s a good thing. Its refreshing to look at everything from a different angle, a different writing style. The journey that we all take to find authentic and genuine love is where this focused my thoughts. To find love and be excepted for who we really are is a quest in itself. Balancing that relationship without completely changing to please someone else is what I saw in Maude and James’ relationship. For most of the story, supporting characters were more likable than Maude. I felt like she was too much. Until I remembered that the world is brimming with overly opinionated individuals.

      I enjoyed the two learning to compromise for the relationship to work. At first, I didn’t really see a change in Maude. It only felt like James was changing. Until I reread certain parts and noticed that her change was subtle at first. For people weary of sexual content and curse words. There are some extremely subtle love scenes and a sprinkle of light cursing. Overall this was a very nice read. Seeing human nature from James’ point of view was insightful. Lawrence G. Taylor’s writing style here made me think. So I would definitely read some of his other works.


      Suzanne is the supporting character that interested me the most. What she tells James about Maude, during different circumstances helped James to see Maude’s character better. Her presence was essential in the development of James and Maude’s relationship. Acknowledging how different Maude is, essentially gives James a few tips on how to act, and saved it in my opinion. As well as James’ opinion.”

I was born in Guyana, moved to England in the early sixties. I worked and studied in London. Residing in Sweden since the beginning of the seventies. I retired a few years ago from a mental health occupation and from a private counseling practice.

The seventies, I began writing, wrote mostly short stories, a four-act closet drama, a few novellas, and an unfinished biographical novel, and had spent two years nurturing the ambition to become an author of some repute. But financially the going was tough, as well as the feeling of insecurity for the future. I worked as a hospital porter for some years. I received a BA (Eng. & Ed.). Unfortu.nately, my interest in writing faded until a couple of years ago.

In Feb (2016), I self-published my debut book a collection of two short stories and two novellas, Strangers In Another Country, available only as an e-book.

In December 2016, I self-published a novella The Eternal Struggle: An Amorous Story, in ebook format and paperback format.

Getting it Right, if Ever - a Romance Novella will be available 22nd Aug 2019
