I have written a book of poems and many short stories. The story of Alan the Butterfly is one story that connected with everyone. It came about one day while I was sitting at my desk in my classroom. I saw a butterfly resting on the windowsill. After it stayed there for a while, I started pondering as to where could it be going. I gave it a place to go, a reason why, and a journey to experience. I named him Alan.
I hope you enjoy reading about Alan as much as I enjoyed writing his story. I also hope to publish his sequel. Thanks.
