How does a runaway turtle become a Smile Ambassador to the world? Why do humans experience a felicific beatitude upon seeing this unique creature. What is it about a little girl and her pet turtle that has stadium sized crowds flocking to see them?
The Smile Ambassadors, set in this current time, begins a journey that takes little Constance around the world which leads to the discovery of the deep and traumatic secret humans have hidden from themselves and their collective memory since the ancient mists of time.
Turtles have long had an oral tradition. The Smile Ambassadors is the first story in a trilogy based on the Pirandellian extrospections and exploits of Zack and Mack, a real, live, two-headed turtle currently living in the Northern Hemisphere. As Zack and Mack are just a turtle; (albeit, with two heads), their straightforward writing style is suitable for humans of all ages.
About the Author
These current days we bask in the warm sun of an idyllic island. We nosh on bits of fish and worms and occasional green things. When one of our turtle friends happens to visit, we sit around on a log and relive the stories of the old days. Our human, Constance, is now full grown. We have not seen her since the old Maytown days. We hope, for all of us, she finds out how to implement the answer to the question. If not, then these days will join the others and slip into the mists of a long forgotten time.
