Earl Mathis


Earl Mathis was born and raised in a rural setting, where he experienced the joys of observing human, plant and animal nature along with the richness of oral traditions and storytelling. Throughout his many careers, the footprints of creative writing and storytelling have always been present. His first published work, an eBook titled, "Table Fables - Bukosi, King of the Ants", is part of a collection of original stories that were created around the dinner table to capture the attention of the author's young daughters. The author would take them on a journey by weaving a story to bring the characters to life in some adventure or mystery, to entertain them, inspire their imaginations, and to impart life lessons and morals. His stories are suitable for children of all ages, but these stories can be enjoyed by all who are eternally children at heart.

Bukosi, the smallest of the ants, is convinced that he will become King of the Ants. One day, he sets out on a journey to prove his worth to accomplish something no other ant has ever done. To meet the challenges of his adventure, he has to rely on faith, wisdom, generosity, courage, friendship, and a persistent belief in himself to dare to achieve his dream.
