(PRLEAP.COM) "A Book of Short Stories," a new book by John C. Mayer, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

John C. Mayer's "A Book of Short Stories" is the work of a true storyteller. He has woven this tapestry with a thread of tales about ordinary people and their victory over adversity. He chose this format so as not to lose the impact of the message by watering it down with useless words.

To quote the author, "My stories are about people that we would wish to be if confronted in their circumstances, showing their strength, determination, and faith in God."

About the Author:

As an associate professor, he taught engineering subjects to deaf students at the National Technical Institute at RIT and later worked as a manufacturer's representative.
