Vaughan Taylor, the author behind the pen name of ‘Vashau Taslet’, is a hobbyist writer and Network Analyst from Hamilton, New Zealand.

Firstly a warning to any potential avid readers of my work out there, “I write my pieces as much for myself as you”, so where it may seem my pieces don’t appear to make much sense, like some crucial detail is missing, this is impart due this, or the fact I’m a first time writer, whose writing style is to start with an idea and then work sideways or backwards(write prequels) from there.

I can assure you, however it will all come together in the end.

FYI any attempts at sequels/prequels to any of my pieces would be grand.
