2020 brought about a change in everyone’s lives. This change had no specific target, much like the wind, the corona virus – Covid-19, swept across our nation like a swarm of locusts that affected every facet of our society. Quarantine, job loss, schools and stores closed, and people lived in fear of what the future held.

We have tried to capture voices from the Pandemic — healthcare workers, educators, people who have experienced loss, writers and entertainers without audiences, and a special group, sixth graders trying to understand, why? None of these voices know what the future holds. We don’t either, but we have tried to document where we are now. From deep sorrow to confusion and yes, even humor, the stories in this anthology capture a glimpse of society and how we coped—and perhaps will help us better understand what this trying period has meant to so many of us.

“My Time to Shine”

by J. Michael Willard

  • Mom’s Choice Award
  • Paris Book Festival Award
  • Bronze Readers’ Favorite International Book Award
My Time to Shine is, in essence, not merely a biography of Glenn Leonard, Joe Coleman and Joe Blunt–former lead singers of The Temptations, The Platters and The Drifters–as a group, but as individuals with separate and interesting personalities. It is also about a musical genre that has stood the test of time, but has never, perhaps, been properly defined like rock ‘n roll, blues, or rhythm and blues. This book harkens back to their earlier careers as lead singers in three Hall of Fame groups that ring memory bells for eons. It is for baby boomers, a treasure chest of memories of years past.
