Another title for this book could be "Tales from an Urban Jungle," but I thought that would be a bit corny--get it? I'm from Indiana. Anyway folks, "Short Stories, Real Life," is a collection of informative and sometimes inspirational news stories I've written that are based in the Midwest--Northwest Indiana to be exact. Locals should buy the book because they may be in it. There is also a story about the world-famous band, Frankie Beverly and Maze, when they performed at a summer concert in Miller section of Gary. This would make excellent light reading. It isn't often local news stories are accessable to those who live outside of the area. Most news--before it becomes national or international news--starts out as a local news story. Think about it. Maybe some of the information in this book could be of use to you.

Short Stories Real Life is a collection of short news features previously published. In the industry, the stories are considered "brites" meaning that they break up the hard news by adding a feel-good story.
"Upon first look, there was nothing exceptional about Melnic's. A brief glance at the rows of candles, oils and incense inside the store at 3700 Arthur Street, might have lead customers to believe that they were just a mixture of colorful dyes, some oil and wax."
