Tonton Jim has written a new children’s story
It came about because of a family dinner at a Thai restaurant. Tonton had ordered Hawaiian fried rice and the others ordered various other dishes. And while their meals were eaten with forks, knives, or chopsticks, only Tonton’s came with a table spoon. Maybe he had been expected to share the dish with the others, but he simply and greedily stuffed himself with large spoonfuls of the rice dish. He assures us it was quite tasty and doesn’t regret his selfishness because he feels he got a pretty good story out of the affair. But we’ll be the judge of that.

Amazon’s thumbnail ad for our latest self-published book reads:
This novel moves the Bible’s Book of Tobit to 1871 California. A priest, a young man and his childhood girlfriend rescue a child from sex slavery.
JM regrets the sex slavery mention and wants prospective readers to know that the girl was rescued, virginity intact, from the threat of a lifetime of prostitution.
