Brainstorm, to date, is the only non-Bumpkinton work I've released.
It's a short story and was released in April 2014.
I wrote part of the story during a creative writing course I attended and based the mental health issues and techniques in the story on my own experiences with psychologists.
What's it about?
Clinical psychologist Michael Eriksson makes a living from helping others, but after a series of events he is left fighting to pick up the pieces of his own shattered psyche.
When he is called to an attempted suicide on a stormy summer’s night, Michael has the chance to save a life.
But will it be his own?
Brainstorm is only available to download in eBook format, so if you fancy giving it a read, grab your copy from one of the below:
Praise for Brainstorm
"This short story packs a lot of emotion into a few pages. Besides Erikkson and his daughter Casey, there are a couple minor characters, but as revealed by his interactions, we know that this man has lost himself.
When he is called out to talk down a potential “jumper,” in the middle of a stormy night, he is confident, invested, focused, and present for the woman on the bridge which leads to an unforeseen ending.
I am sure that I gasped out loud, and tears welled up in my eyes.
Simply put, I was blown away."
