The Many Faces of Dawn

"The Many Faces of Dawn." This is a book written in three genres and divided into three sections. Section one contains the short stories, section two, poetry, and section three, a one act play. Section One. Five short stories. "The Hatpin" is a story set in occupied France in 1943. This is a brief, torrid, love affair as it happened in the tense times of man against man. The hatpin is the pivotal point of this go or no go romance. The second story, "An Attack on Freedom," challenges the hippie perception of the way the world was, or should have been. Everything is on the table, abortion, drugs, and religion during this Vietnam War era. The setting is a college campus cafeteria where much of the action takes place. Here is a change of pace in the third story, "Thunder in the Night." A story of a maturing deer, Tyboe, who faces the trauma of his mother's death and his need to face the dream she had for him. This story explores the nature of his growth. Story number four, "First Lady and the Tree," shows how a community deals with one person's ambitious desire to keep a dying tree alive. The final story, "Couple Power," creates a conflict between a spider, her husband, and the world falling apart because of their pettiness. It takes an elephant and an elf to save the day. Section Two. Poetry. The poetry in this section is very diverse. It contains humor, the haiku, love poems and poems for spiritual growth. It has the touch of the metaphysical and the simplicity of the adolescence. Section Three. A one act play. "King Lear's Shakespeare," turns the table on the old bard. Saucy and riveting in its presentation, it uses Shakespeare's own characters to challenge his writings. Gayle Smith, Editor, 'Write, Right' says, "This is awesome. Best Shakespeare I've ever read!"
