Overview

Professional writer and editor Don McNair spent forty years writing for others, but at night he wrote fiction and non-fiction books for pleasure. This book presents his favorite short stories, never before published.


The Man on the Park Bench: What were the dark secrets from his past? And his future?

Beulah’s Glow-in-the-Dark Jesus: He was such a nice boy, educated and all. And Beauregard was gone…

Brotherly Love: Jack’s big brother had just gotten out of prison and the police were already hounding him. If someone didn’t help him, he’d go right back.

Heroes on Parade: A parade wasn’t even scheduled. But there it was, and only she and Margaret could see it.

Home in Time: Carl Nichols might be in his nineties, but maybe he could still save his parents.

The Chipmunk Sign: Farmer Ben O’Malley finally visited the ritzy sister who’d abandoned him and their father years ago. But he sure wasn’t expecting this.

The CLOSET Apprentice: Where do old sayings come from? This retiring “old sayings” professional is ready to explain it all to his new apprentice.

The Green Bridesmaid Dress: That dress was sure purty and all. But would it do what it was supposed to?

The Liaison: Richard Smith was ready for a midlife fling. Or was he?

The Merit Badge: If Don had earned that merit badge fifty years ago, his life would probably have turned out a whole lot different.

The Old Furniture Polish Warehouse: When Stacey Jenkins’ mother ran away with the chemical salesman thirty years ago, she didn’t get far.

The Quarantine Flatboat: 1770’s pioneer Aaron Reeder thought he knew what love for his young daughter was, until he ran into problems going west on the Tennessee River flotilla to settle the land.

Deliverance at Last: If God wouldn’t save him, he’d have to do it himself.

Meet the Author

Don McNair, now a prolific author, spent his working life editing magazines (11 years), producing public relations materials for the Burson-Marsteller international PR firm (6 years), and heading his own marketing communications firm, McNair Marketing Communications (21 years). His creativity has won him three Golden Trumpets for best industrial relations programs from the Publicity Club of Chicago, a certificate of merit award for a quarterly magazine he wrote and produced, and the Public Relations Society of America’s Silver Anvil. The latter is comparable to the Emmy and Oscar in other industries.
McNair has written and placed hundreds of trade magazine articles and three published non-fiction “how-to” books (Tab Books). He’s written six novels; two young-adult novels (Attack of the Killer Prom Dresses and The Long Hunter), three romantic suspense novels Mystery on Firefly Knob, Mystery at Mangolia Mansion, and Wait for Backup!), and a romantic comedy (BJ, Milo, and the Hairdo from Heck).
McNair now concentrates on editing novels for others and teaching two online editing classes (see McNairEdits.com).
