ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I am 21 years old and have just graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with an honours degree in Marketing and Communication. What I really want to do though is write, that has been my lifelong dream. I am the kind of person who could happily spend my entire life sitting at a computer, writing story after story - of course, that doesn't mean they'll be any good, but practice makes perfect. . .supposedly. I would appreciate any feedback and criticism regarding this story, its not as if I'm going to see any of you face to face!

DISCLAIMER: STORYMANIA DOES NOT PROVIDE AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWS. ALL REVIEWS ARE PROVIDED BY NON-ASSOCIATED VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF THE WAY THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

"Hi there once again Paula, as I've been saying for months now (though my evil twin brother Tyrant seems to disagree with), in reviews upon all of your romantic stories, I think you are one of the best romantic writers on Storymania (and no that's not a pick-up line... honest). You didn't seem to be very interested in my proposal to head-up my romantic/heroic fantasy world project, which was contained in the e-mail package I sent you awhile back, but that's okay, I will still continue to respond favorably to your work as long as you continue to do it with the quality I have come to expect and respect. Just one question. What is a 18-30 package holiday? Does that mean 18-30 days? It isn't necessary to put what it means in the story, it's just for my own curiosity. As always, your partner in crime across the Pond, EC Allen." -- EC Allen.
"It wasn't that I wasn't interested, I just didn't have the time, I am a fourth year uni student! Anyway, an 18-30 package holiday is one for 18-30 year olds, which basically both males and females go on if they want to get laid. there's a lot of desperate people out there! I just assumed it was a universal kinda thing! Anyway, thanks for the review!" -- Paula.
" Alright. Crystal clear now, thank-you." -- EC Allen.
