Diana Hockley lives in a small town in rural Australia with her husband and seven pet rats. In addition to several short stories, Hockley also has two novels available.


“Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you...”


As I try to figure out what to say about Requiem for a Lost Youth I think of a point, then say, “nope, that gives away too much.” All I can say is that there are at least two mysteries and a character or two who have a youthful indiscretion that comes back to haunt them, all packed in just a few thousand words. A quick, yet satisfying read.

Format/Typo Issues:

No significant issues

Rating: **** Four stars

This is like Christmas, two reviews for two short stories in a couple of days!

Thank you for taking the time to read and review this little story set in my childhood country town here in Australia. It's greatly appreciated :)
