Praise for Rosen Trevithick

"Brilliant."
- The Independent
"Rosen has a flair for snappy dialogue, detailed description and fast plot movement. I'll definitely be reading more of her work."
- David Wailing (Author)
"... a marvellously entertaining read and I recommend it."
- Damaskcat (Amazon Top 50 Reviewer)
"The characters are engaging, the plot tightly woven with enough twists and turns to maintain momentum, and the book deals with important themes in a very sensitive and thought provoking manner. I particularly admired the language, which treads an admirably fine line between moments of humour and the serious consideration of themes such as mental illness."
- Alex Roddie (Author)

The Selfish Act

The Selfish Act

A Short Story (Part of the Seesaw - Volume I collection)

Written in response to Jeremy Clarkson's remarks about the selfish nature of suicide on railway lines, "The Selfish Act" is a short story that paints a more insightful portrait of the mind of a suicidal person.

Morwenna has a very satisfying life, but she's plagued by an undiagnosed mental health problem that she refers to as, "Too many thoughts."

When she wakes up the morning after her engagement party, feeling disconnected from the world, her despair drives her to a railway bridge. She finds herself trapped between the reality of phone calls from loved ones and the alternative universe painted by desperate depression.

Please note: This is a political response, intended to contribute to the debate about whether or not suicide is selfish. If you want to be entertained, another title by Rosen Trevithick might be more appropriate.

Praise

"I wish I could give The Selfish Act more than 5 stars. Again, Trevithick has shown herself as a master of the short story."
- N. Blackburn

"A poignant and thought provoking book."
- A. Coburn (Amazon Top 500 Reviewer)

"This is one of Rosen's heart-wrenchingly sad short stories. Rosen can write very funny and also full of pain. This is one of the pain ones ... You get an insight into the workings of the mind of someone on the edge and it's a very, very scary place."
- J. Stacey (Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer)
