about me

It is important for anyone visiting my page from today (Monday, April 9, 2012) onward to understand that i will not be taking on more reads until further notice because I must now devote the computer time I have available to me to do other work. I will continue to support the books that are already on my shelf and watchlist as promised. World traveler. Worked in data processing for many years. Have always enjoyed studies within the social sciences, transportation, and communication. I would especially enjoy reading those manuscripts that contain
stories for CHILDREN ages 6 through 12. My own writing
is for youngsters in that age group. Thank you.

Excellent read. Cassidy Brown reminds me of a student I had in one of my classes some years ago. It was a fourth grade class. It is easy to empathize with the young lady because of my own experience. view book

There is not much I could add to the excellent positive comments already made regarding this manuscript except to state that I appreciate the time and effort it has taken to put it together.
