A Book of Short Stories
by John C Mayer
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
John C. Mayer was born in Rochester, New York, in 1930, and grew up in a German immigrant family of eight children (three brothers and four sisters). After graduating from the Rochester Public School System, he attended the Rochester Institute of Technology, earning a both a B.S. and M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering.
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. Mayer's writing career began after retirement, in order to provide readers with stories of compassion and commitment that often go unnoticed.
