But in this case, Fates Kiss is a story that is different and needs to be told. It was written because Fates Kiss contains true-to-life experiences that could benefit a parent raising a youngster of any age. The author admits raising children in todays environment remains a tremendous challenge. Even those movies of the 30s and 40s could influence a childs mind as they did on me-some good and some not so good. I thought I could swim just by watching Tarzan. The influences of seemingly trivial experiences have a lifetime effect. Fates Kiss has everything covered, with subjects from the heritage of my parents to sexuality, fish, frogs, a snapper turtle on a fishermans thumb, to educational system differences in various parts of the country. Now then, did your Mamma have your future studies all laid out for you? Mine did. Stories include work ethics, growing up on a farm with various pets and animals, good and bad teachers along with good times and the worst, Boy Scout experiences, which were not as conducive to learning as one might be led to believe, special times with siblings, and unusual jobs, including one that helped bring closure to the Cold War and that affected our country for many years. Fates Kiss includes many short stories with humor, twists and turns-unusual foreign exchange students, getting married in one day, and a string of circumstances that caused undue mental torture. I ask the question: What more could anyone ask for?
