New Book, BEYOND, is a Collection of Metaphysical Short Stories for Young Adults
"Michigan artist, Ron Teachworth, has turned his talents from visual art to Literary art. There's plenty of adventure at hand, the writing is beautiful yet accessible. The work has that classic, enduring quality that you recognize instantly." Kimberly Kafka, Author
Beyond's Young Adult short stories cross cultures and take place in settings from North America to Europe. A metaphysical/religious motif binds the collection, and stories are set in times dating back to 1932-when swing dancing was the rage-to a recent state science competition in New Mexico. "Play" deals with a girl's attempt to mitigate her feelings about violence in the home; in "Callanish Stones", a young boy is found on a remote beach in Scotland, barely alive; "Finding Edith Allen" centers on a young woman in search of her birth mother; and "Mont. St. Michel" tells the story of a child raised by a Bishop in France. The stories mix male and female protagonists with families and friends, often in school or Catholic settings.
Mr. Teachworth's background is in visual art, film and television. He wrote and directed an independent feature film for Vestron Pictures, Going Back. He followed up with a children's book, Two Stones and recently completed a commercial adult novel, An Attraction Beyond Vows. He has taught at the college level, and currently writes for ArtHopper.org a web site where he reviews art exhibitions through out the Midwest. http://www.ronteachworthliterary.com/
