Crammed with fascinating facts about the everyday bric-a-brac of the house in which you live, Nails, Noggins and Newels is written in a lively, informal style which will appeal to any DIY enthusiast.
Cuentos from the House on West Connecticut Avenue began as a writing exercise in a teachers seminar. The assignment was to write about your first house with as much detail as possible. As I wrote, I remembered and began to lose track of time. That is how the first story, The Bottom Drawer, came into existence. Were there more stories in me? Ones that others could relate to? Oh, yes! In And Then Came Eloisa you will remember the houseguest that overstayed her welcome. The Green American blends comedy and sadness in dealing with the subject of racism. The two Christmas stories that are included are examples of how some families deal with the challenges of maintaining important values and allowing for change. Hysterically funny and always thought provoking, Cuentos lets you experience what it was like growing up eating rice and beans and believing that you could teach others to fly. Filled with rich, evocative language, each story lets you see how the future is shaped by how we see our past.
