About the Author
Born in Renton, Washington State in 1953, Eric Bowen uses his day job as an accountant to support his family and his various hobbies and social activities, including Toastmasters, the Unitarians, hiking, taekwondo, linguistics, singing, and of course writing. His first book, An American View of Wales, chronicled his decade of volunteering for the Welsh home rule and language restoration movement.

The stories in this book are about good mothers and bad mothers and what we learn from each. They are honest stories, not saccharine or sweetened up. These are stories and poems by real people who have lived through true experiences. There's a great deal here and the stories come from people worldwide. From the very first story about the woman who contacted President Roosevelt to help save her daughter's life, the book grabs the reader's attention. It never disappoints or stops being interesting.
My contribution to this anthology is only one poem--although it happens to be one of my best. I take pride in being associated with this work and strongly recommend it to readers everywhere.
