Hello, I'm R.G Rankine. I am a self-published indie author based in London, UK. Although I consider myself very much a novice, I am excited to be at the start of my life long journey in writing. I am interested in contemporary fiction and write short stories that have a focus on modern life. I formed Thinking Plainly Limited in January 2012 to self publish ebooks and to be part of the fascinating community of independent writers. With the help of my fellow writers: Rufus Garlic and Alfred Duff, as well as the amazing people I have met in the self publishing world since starting this journey, I am learning and developing with every story. I am on all major social media sites and would love to hear from you, please feel free to connect from any of the links on my websites, www.thinkingplainly.com or www.rgrankine.com.
The Things They Carried won France's prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
