One Good Story, Logo

The setting for this story is a real place. It is also a place where some of my most vivid memories are stored. This is fiction. This is a short novel written with the intent of captivating and engaging language learners. It is a story of inquietudes, of self-search and of difficult life choices that we all face.

It is written for anyone to read. Piloting of the book has shown that Heritage Spanish speakers find this an intriguing dash-through story that provokes interesting and sometimes deep discussion. Language learners with some background in Spanish have especially enjoyed this book, as it is written with the intent to contain the vocabulary to an intermediate reader’s level. Students at a more novice level find themselves engaged in the book, enticed to read for meaning.

My hope is that everyone who reads this story becomes captivated and engaged in the book. This project has been my passion and now my dream is to share it with others. The thoughts, concepts and ideas presented are fiction, for the purpose of writing one good story. Please enjoy the read.
