Overview

Who are we? We are hardworking and focused. We are winners or defeaters. We fall in and out of love. Some of us own nice cars while others take the bus. We are immensely rich or exceedingly broke. We're not in tabloids or on covers of magazines. "We're common, Everyday Folks."

Everyday Folks: Short Stories on the Common People takes a glimpse into the lives of people whose life stories would probably go unnoticed. The short stories warm our hearts or challenge our nerves. They chronicle the realities and complexities that many of us face on a day-to-day basis. Set in Miami, Florida, Everyday Folks gives the rest of the world a chance to see beneath the fleshy surface of people who build their lives around love, pain, and the inevitable.

This book is dedicated to you...not to many but a small few...for the things you do in lieu of what you do...

For it is derived from the essence of you.

It captures the heart with episodes that only the common people will understand.

Everyday Folks is a remarkable compilation of short stories of everyday people. The author gives vivid captions of things that happen to us on a daily basis and that we many times keep to ourselves. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in reliving experiences that touch our lives. Each story takes you to a situation in someone's life that leaves you thinking and amazed of the outcome. The writing style is original and invites the reader to immerse themselves into the stories. The author did an outstanding job and I hope to read more of his books in the near future.

The moment I saw the title, I knew I had to purchase it. Everyday Folks is a unique book. It's a quick read about interesting people who live in Miami. I was very surprised to learn that it was a mini-anthology, for the book contained 16 short stories that are powerful. I teach high school Language Arts and I introduced this book to my students as a recommended reading, and they love it! In fact, the kids can't seem to put it down. It gives them something unique and different. The language is appropriate and it's very good for their level. Even for adults, this is definitely a must read. I am impressed with what I saw. I hope there will be a series!
