A short story chock full of ironic life lessons. Please do not reveal the last line of this story, so that other readers may experience in full the same epiphanies as you. This story is not recommended for anyone under thirteen years of age. Inspired both by an Ernest Hemingway short story and by an actual interview from the actor Jeff Daniels (anchor on Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom'): "...you had to be fearless. You had to be OK with failing miserably...the trick was to jump off the cliff and start flapping your arms as hard as you could, and hoping you flew a little bit. When that would work, when you jump off that cliff and just go and hope to hell...it was thrilling." This book would be a good gift for anyone you know who is facing a precipitous decision. It now includes as a two-for-one bonus feature "The Rock That Was Afraid To Swim, Part Two". After finishing "Rock" please pause and reflect at least a few hours before continuing to Part Two. Thank you.
I am always happy when a reader takes an interest in one of my ebooks. There's millions of choices for the discerning searcher so it's somewhat of a miracle when someone even previews something that I have written. To date, my most popular ebooks have been "The Death Of Medicine", about a surgeon called 'The Savior Of Mothers' (his techniques are now being used to combat a possible mega-epidemic called 'CRE'); a short story that is an homage to The Twilight Zone ("11/11/11")and accurately presaged the current American political situation; a short story about the pilgrimage of a real-life Russian idealist entitled "Why The Russian Language May Be A Clever Hoax"; and a series of humor books, the "If You Like to Laugh" volumes.
I also write children's books and children's comedy. I try to keep my humor clean and free from cruelty but, above all, very funny. "The Monsters That Were Afraid Of Children" and "The Dog Who Cried Woof" are my two most popular children's stories but I believe there are some undiscovered gems in my children's catalogue.
Finally, I also write satirical pieces, such as "Canada died?", which reflects on my thoughts after I recently found one of those 'Canada. 1867-2008' in-memoriam nickels among my change. (Save those coins--they'll be worth a fortune some day) and the Rocky the Rock life-lessons series.
I hope you enjoy all my books and stories.
