William Shakespeare once wrote, “There is history in all men’s lives.” Everyone has their favorite memories from growing up and this book is a collection of short stories from my childhood. I grew up with 11 siblings, one dog, and half a cat in Northern Ohio. Every day brought a never ending supply of adventures and mishaps. Tale of the Alpha Chicken is the first of a series.
This is an award winning short story (5,000 words) which begins on a bright sunny April day in 1973 that would forever change the direction of my life. This story is adapted from a completed manuscript and follows me as I lived alone and helpless in a house full of people. How do you lean to cope when everything is taken from you? You have to turn to the only thing left.
The goal of this book is to make you stand out from the crowd and "Take Your First Job".
