I try to write what I feel, be it for a child or adult. I try to tell the facts in both fiction and nonfiction. I avoid telling truth for it contains too many variables. There is the truth of the right and of the left; there is truth in the middle and the truth of those that believe no truth. The Jew, the Christian, the Islamist all proclaim the love of the HOLY LANDS at the same time they detest, malign and hate one another. Where then is truth. So I speak fact not truth.

DIS-illusioned: "So I speak fact not truth."
Isn't that like saying you like dogs but not canines? Don't confuse truth with value judgment.

DIS-illusioned: "Truth...a dog is man's best friend."
But, this 'truth' may not be accepted by all men, as some of them may 'believe/feel/think' instead that a parrot/cat/horse/computer is man's best friend.

petalangela: Man's conscience is his only friend the only honest one it never leaves him
Delightfully told in rhyming verse, this story features a young hero (Sophie) who encourages a self-conscious king to show himself even though he is different. Sensitive and silly, this vibrantly illustrated tale will show readers that when we embrace diversity and difference, we open up a world of friendship and possibilities.
