Because there's a very good chance I'll restore your faith in humanity, chapter by chapter, story by story, character by character.

These stories will never leave you. You'll remember them and isn't that what a good story is supposed to do? Change you, stay with you, and add something to your life that you never had before and didn't know you were lacking?

I worked with criminals for many years as a volunteer. I really do have a ton of stories to tell and before you start to think I'm a bleeding heart - stop it. Far from it. How I ended up doing it IS part of the book and it's been a long, strange trip.

Fortunately, or unfortunately (as the case may be), I had one hell of a good time and it also broke my heart. After this story comes the one about my work in Juvenile Hall. The time there still haunts me but also showed me that no matter what situation a person finds themselves in, an outstretched hand is a life saver. Makes me smile to remember those kids.

I want you to hear these stories, talk to me if you want, and feel better about people in general. I want you to read the stories and smile and for a moment, understand another person a bit better.

It’s a journey and I am a prolific writer and I’d like to have you along for the ride. I think that would be great and I’d like to know that what I’m saying to the great cosmic universe is making a difference. Maybe it is or maybe it isn’t, but I’m sticking with my story that it is.

You'll get the short stories, BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

You'll also get:
The book I am writing about my time in the criminal justice system and the people I met. This will be lengthy and you'll read along with me as I write it. This will be primarily about the battered women I worked with, their stories, and my personal struggles with keeping the work going while my life was falling apart. Somehow, in their own unique and surprising ways, they saved me while I tried to save them. Read about the main character, Chantelle, and how she took her ruined beginning and turned her life around. Everyone told her she couldn't do it. She did it anyway.
Goals
