I believe I speak for prospective readers of this collection if I describe it with J.K. Rowling’s words that “There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.” The stories embedded in this collection do just that—transport its readers to different dimensions (like Mars in “One For Mars”)  where they get to feel and see the stories happen. This collection has nineteen original stories and each, though different from the other, connect with each other to form a transcendent whole. A whole of different tales yet connected through their shared quality—adventure.

In “One For Mars”, Jared “Jake” Mitchell’s journey begins when he was finally chosen to be the first human to set foot on the fabled Red Planet, Mars. And the journey is not all milk and honey, however, thrilling the idea is. He makes it to the red planet on Saturday, August 28, 2032. But what happens when he lands on the Valles Marinaris? 

In “Florida Redemption”, we are thrust into a cold, snowy, miserable March in 1972 as our narrator makes a journey to Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL—a journey that promises all the intrigue, the regret and the eventual ‘lessons learnt’ moment.

In “Passenger 39-C” our narrator promises to never forget Wednesday, March 18, 2015. Why? What happened? These are questions you find bugging your mind the second you get those first-line sinking in. A question that will be your guide throughout the entire journey from Sacramento, CA to Frankfort, Germany. 

This Journey journal, as I call this collection, is a compilation of journeys that promises to live you wandering, being in the moment and enjoying the journeys, one short story at a time. This collection isn’t big on the plot as it is on characters (sometimes) and the idea of tagging along a journey—moving from one point to the other and all the ups and downs alongside. And so if you are not too much of a sucker for really defined-plotline stories, then this is for you!
