A couple of months ago I submitted my short story Good American Kids to Gremlin Creative and yesterday they published it on their website. I wanted to give some background on where the story comes from. Over 3 years ago and way before Trump announced that he was running for president. I told my wife I wanted to write a short story. She told me that I should write something positive about Muslims. At the time all news having to do with Muslims was about Muslim Terrorist organizations. This made me remember back before 911, I worked in office and computer supplies. I knew and often talked with Muslims that were either business owners or running businesses. So I started wondering what would happen to one of them if they went to a small town, and they were hired to fix a company where the employees had been ripping off said company. How the employees that were caught and fired use racism to combat losing their jobs. Of course I wrote the story from the view point of a young boy and surrounded him with friends from different backgrounds.

As Always, Happy Reading and Writing Everyone
