What kinds of short stories do you write? I am a terrific editor and writing English language teacher. I am looking for someone to critique my short stories and a book. Because what I write is near and dear, it is hard to be objective as far as the reader’s interest may be concerned. My short stores are based on memories but come with a hopeful inspirational message to the reader, sort of “Do this and not that.” My book is a human interest success story revolving around my son I adopted in Thailand. By the time he was four, I was convinced he was intellectually slow. Boy, was I wrong! There is a little in it about his color being raised primarily in an American society.
