Today, I wish to extoll the writing genius of Timothy C. Hobbs. I read The Smell of Ginger by Timothy and absolutely loved it! My review on Smashwords is below. There are many other great stories this great author has written. You can check out his Author Page on Amazon and Smashwords, and  he is also on Facebook. How much do I enjoy this author's works? When I grow up, I want to write as well as he does. Believe me, there is no one better at what he does.

Short description

It's Halloween in Jasper, Texas and Butch and Suzy are driving with their dad to trick or treat at the strip mall and the local churches. They didn't count on the truck breaking down, getting lost in the woods, or coming across the ordinary old cabin, but there's nothing ordinary about the tenants - two spinster sisters who have been waiting eternally for children to call their own.

The Smell of Ginger is the first story from Once Upon a Time in Texas, a collective series of dark variations of popular fairy tales by Timothy C. Hobbs.


Review by: Robert Nelson on June 24, 2013 : star star star star star (Remove)
The Smell Of Ginger is a masterpiece of horror! Timothy C. Hobbs has done what very few authors are able to do: get all the elements right; back story where and when necessary; plenty of description, but not to the point where you gag on it-I hate it when some authors do that; and a fast moving story which will keep you on the edge of your seat. The protagonists and antagonists both are superbly drawn and are highly believable. I need to read more of this great author's work. He is comparable to the best the genre has to offer.

Timothy C. Hobbs is one super author!
