Eight short fictional stories meant for the novice to intermediate adult reader. The style is casual and the language is conversational. Subject matters include self-doubt and coping with loss; but with copious amounts of humor and grief as well. These anecdotes are meant to entertain, but also they are intended to linger in the mind of the reader for days beyond their consumption. In short they represent me, the author, a man with nothing to offer the 21st century, at my best and at my worst.

I was born and raised in southern Kentucky, where I learned from my father the importance of storytelling. From a young age I devoured the works of S.E. Hinton and Mark Twain, and by the time I graduated high school I was reading Proust, Joyce, and Tolstoy. I always knew I wanted to write; however, I am also quite lazy. So now at the ripe old age of forty, I present to you my first finished work. I hope these stories make you laugh when they should and cry when they should. But most importantly, upon your completion of this humble offering, I hope more than anything that you do not regret the time you spent taking in word after mediocre word.
I appreciate the time and money you have invested in me, as does my amazing family. I ask that you give an honest review once you have read this book. That way I will know with certainty if I should continue to write, or just focus all my attention on being the most well-read and loquacious fella here at the sawmill. Thank you and God bless.
