  1. Very much enjoyed reading ‘The Acquisition’. Great writing style and atmosphere in that story. It felt as if the offices, walls, and hallways into which Celia was relegated were surrounding me as well. Also loved the building tension and mystery throughout. Looking forward to reading your upcoming works!
