EXCERPT from Alleys and Broken Dreams 2:

“Maybe I’m just a stupid homeless man but I know how hard people have it, and I know the repercussions low paying jobs are having on society even if the “learned” government types choose to ignore it.”  Peanut rambled in a low murmur. “Better paying jobs where a dad can make a living so a mom; can stay home. Or vice versa!”

“Naw man you aren’t stupid.” Robert reassured him. “Hell you got a better handle on it than those guys do; because you live it. We all do. If you could support a family on a single income; it’d make a big difference in all kinds of areas.”

“Yeah it would!” Peanut shook his head in agreement. “Crime and divorce rates and all kinds of other areas. For all their talk about war on marriage and family values keeping the minimum wage down is the real culprit in the decline of society! But den dat’s just my humble opinion.”

“Ain’t opinion, that’s some real truth, but when did you get to be so political?” Marvin pulled a double take and reared back to eyeball Peanut in surprise.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
