Chase Mansfield and Teddy Downing personify a diamond in the rough in today's society. Chase represents those who are naturally deficient in some areas, but graced with compassion. Teddy, on the other hand knows the pain of rejection. He is one of many being raised by a lone grandparent.

There is a common thread that the two share.

Each juvenile is fully aware that their mere appearance can taunt a social injustice. From there, a stigma will be placed on them; but only from the weak. They do however, possess a strength that dissolves this cruelty. Their first-hand experience of being misunderstood allows them to easily identify the pain in others. Courage, love and understanding are the tools that they incorporate. Chase and Teddy nurture the very insecurities that their critics secretively battle and bring down the wall.

What happens next is a beautiful unification.

These seemingly insignificant beings touched those who once outcast them. A warm community spawns as a result from this. In the end, everyone is grateful that a 'Chase Mansfield'; or a 'Teddy Downing' entered their life.

About the Author

Matt Shea considers himself extremely blessed by his family; his three brothers and two sisters have always shown him great support. Unlike many families, they still gather with their parents for family holidays. The Shea family values are based on accepting everyone, and they especially care for senior citizens and the disadvantaged.

His daughter, Laura, along with his nieces and nephews, share their world with the rest of the family. Through the young people, the adults get to relive their own childhood.

A union worker for thirty-two years, Matt found himself surrounded with average people and got a close look at what their lives were all about. This opened his eyes and taught him many lessons about others as well as himself.

When Matt retired in June of 2010, he pursued his lifelong dream of becoming an author. His inspiration has been fueled by being a worker, brother, devoted dad, and loyal son. These gifts motivate him to write about the trials of everyday life for the common man.
