About Daron Fraley

Daron is the creator of Thirty-Six and author of the first book in the multi-author series by the same name. Originally from Wyoming, Daron has lived in the Midwest and in many towns and cities in the Mountain States region.

Writer by night, Senior Data Center Engineer by day, he has traveled to more than half of the biggest cities in the United States, one of his favorites being Chicago. The architecture, the people, and the regional foods all fascinate him. But his favorite places on earth are those where he can relax, think, and dream.

Not yet an expert world traveler, he has been to France, Switzerland, the Bahamas, St. Thomas, San Juan, Canada, and Mexico. He loves the Caribbean, and wonders how a small-town boy from Wyoming ever got the chance to fall in love with the ocean.

I'm not a Christian, but I really enjoyed these stories, particularly "Water". Daron Fraley knows how to draw the reader in and make him/her care about the characters. Well done, sir!

I LOVED the point of view in the second story. I have never seen a story like that. The writing style got a bit boring in some part, where every single action taking place was nararated. But I thought it was enjoyable as a whole.

I thought these stories were enjoyable and definitely a quick read. I liked the third story best, as it discussed a familiar scene. Although I do not usually read Christian fiction, the subject matter is pretty universal. The first story about the homeless man was also good.

Review by: Book Sp(l)ot on Dec. 12, 2010 :
These are definitely Christian stories-the second and the third quite a bit more heavily so than the first. I did like the first story, didn't love it but I liked it. Really 2.5 stars.

I enjoyed reading Waters.All three stories , but Petitions was my favourite of all. I've read stories with homeless people but never one that has so much impact on me .
The book contains 3 short stories :PETITIONS ,ANGEL’S SONG and WATER.
I was really touched by Mark's story presented to us in Petitions..Mark's Point of view in this story makes you realize how important familly is .I liked how we get to know Mark only ofter he becomes homeless and looses everyting.

Each one of the 3 stories reminds us how to be grateful for our familly and that we are human, also that we should be more kind towards others.

This book is very sweet. The short stories are beautiful, Petitions is the most wonderful for me, the others, with its Christian themes, because of my beliefs, not enjoyed. But certainly recommend it.

Review by: Lisa- Bookworm Lisa on Dec. 2, 2010 :
I liked the short stories. Each touched my heart in a different way. The first reminded me that we often judge a person by circumstances and not by character.

The second was a diffent perspective of the Christmas story. It was about a boy forgiving himself for circumstances beyond his control. I liked that it was a Christmas story from a different world.

The third reminds me that we often look out for ourselves and that the savior looks out for everyone.

Very well written and enjoyable to read.

I just read the collection of short stories in the Ebook Water, a free download.

This book had a very Christian theme with two of these short stories coming from stories found in the Bible.

What I appreciated about these stories was the reminder that people have feelings. All people, regardless of their circumstances. Most of the time we do not know what battles people are fighting inside, the demons that rage. Not all trials are physical and visible as the man in the last story. In all three stories there was a showing of kindness and I think that we could all benefit from the reminder that kindness brings about greatness. It can make a difference.
