TALES OF UNPREDICTABLE PEOPLE AND THE BAGGAGE THEY CARRY
While riding public transit I studied all the faces of strangers going somewhere and envisioned to what places.
I’d overhear them talking and without being too rude would listen quite intently, never to intrude.
I’d guess from their expressions if they were distressed, then give them my reality based on the way they dressed.
Waiting on a standing line or walking on the street inspired me to think about folks I’d never meet.
This book’s a compilation of fictitious observations. A mix of desperation and mindful aspirations.
There may be hints of humor or a negative summation, with fast-paced, rhyming tales with twists to blow your expectation!
Why I wrote THE BOOK OF STORY RHYMES…
I don’t think in rhyme, except some of the time. So why write this Book? Rhyming gave it a hook. I enjoy watching strangers and picture their dangers. The stories are fiction, tales of lives filled with friction. The people are wrecks, their dynamics, complex. These yarns do awaken thoughts not before shaken. To stand out from the rest, this Book is my test to see what is best to create interest.
I quit corporate clamber, and editing grammar, to be a teacher – but never a preacher. I’m also an artist, known to try my hardest. My paintings are bold, many have been sold. One’s a UNICEF card, considered five-starred. As shown on this cover, there are clues to discover what gives me satisfaction – “a peaceful reaction.”
I’m inspired to write to make my day bright. I admit I have quirks, doing what I think works. I strive for success and won’t settle for less.
