I just received an email from a publisher from Mauritius (an island in the Indian Ocean) that wants to publish one of my children’s short stories “A Silver Metal”. This story will be published in a text book for children 10 through 14 who are learning English. If any of you are familiar with this island is has a multicultural ethnic background where many speak French but the Government speaks English. It has ideal weather and it has wonderful beaches which makes it a tourist paradise.
I am thrilled and honored that they have selected my story for inclusion into their textbooks.
Summary of story:
“Well,” began Kevin, “it’s just that I’m not very good at anything.” “Cheer up, son,” his dad told him as he patted him on the back. “You know about Albert Einstein. No one knew that he was special for a long time. George Bernard Shaw, the playwright, was an average student but he became very famous. Kevin, all children are special.”
