  1. Hello, I’m one of Mrs Yana’s students. I read your story and it was really impressive with an unexpectable ending. I’m really looking forward to reading more of your stories.

  2. I was enthralled and I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end. I was thinking about “The Silence of the Lambs” but no it was John Dodd’s story “A Crow Among the Starlings” – a young, vulnerable photographer has to trust a cunning, incarcerated killer, who even skins his victims…And who wins the game … you have to read it… Thank you, John Dodds. Looking forward to reading another story of yours, although I am a little bit afraid.
