“Stingy Jack and the Jack O’Lantern”

My children’s Halloween story “Stingy Jack and the Jack O’Lantern” has a photo of my grandson Marc and the story was written about a young boy, Dylan with the name of another grandson. Now I have to write a story for my third grandson, Ryan. I would appreciate it if those of you with young children or grandchildren would introduce the website to them. After reading the story perhaps you might be interested in rating it. The link is:  http://www.shortkidstories.com/story/stingy-jack-and-the-jack-olantern/

Short Kid Stories has many interesting stories for kids of all ages.

The Indiana Voice Journal

Acceptances have been few and far this 2015 for me. But I’m happy to tell my blog readers that persistence pays off. I sent a short story to the above mentioned journal and I was too late for the current issue but they invited me to submit some poetry for the November issue. I immediately responded and an acceptance followed along with a request for a photo to accompany the poem. The poem is titled “The Rainbow” and I just happened to have taken a photo of a double rainbow which I submitted. Both were accepted for the November issue. I will give the link when published but check out the journal:  http://www.indianavoicejournal.com/

Dear Nana Book

My memoir of my grandmother was just published in the “Dear Nana” book. There are 39 other authors besides DSC_1084-001myself included in this “must read” book. Why I refer to it as that is because it is a fantastic tribute to all grandmothers no matter what there title is. Grandchildren that have had such special grandmothers are indeed very fortunate. Many of us have passed down experiences that we have learned from these special ladies. The book is for sale at Amazon.com.
