About “Small Tyrants”

The life of a telepath is a lonely one; humans are a flawed and selfish species, after all. Respect is hard to find when you can hear everything a person isn’t saying, and Riley’s heard it all. But telepathy has its benefits…

Riley is a young man with a secret skill and a troubled past. His father’s disappearance should have been a welcomed respite from the abuse, but some scars never heal and revenge is a seductive remedy. When he discovers he can do more than just read minds he decides he must use his “gift” to punish society’s defects. But is he truly alone? What if there are others with mysterious talents?

This is a novel I have been writing since December 30th, 2012. I’m not sure I’d ever call myself a “writer’, this is just a little hobby of mine that began on a whim. I have no idea what I hope to achieve by writing this story, but I enjoy the creative process and if there’s even a single person out there who enjoys reading it, well that’s enough for me. I’d love any constructive criticism you could offer!

I also post new chapters on my deviant Art if you’d rather follow it there… http://runlikeatortus.deviantart.com/gallery/41480173
