A collection of stories, essays, and more inspired by the country music legend and his songs. The legendary lyrics of Johnny Cash are the inspiration for this collection of creative works that put a new spin on the musical legend. For nearly five decades, Cash captivated audiences with his unique voice and candid portrayal of the gritty life of a working man, and his songs continue to strike a chord with listeners today. But it is the stories behind the music that remain with audiences and provide the inspiration for the work in this thoughtful compilation of fiction and nonfiction from contributors. What do Johnny Cash and C. S. Lewis have in common? Don Cusic offers up an interesting answer. A boy named Sue meets a girl named Fred in an endearing story by Lauren Baratz-Logsted and Greg Logsted. Robert G. Weiner explores the Man in Black as seen on TV. A teenage girl learns about fidelity, incarceration, and the profound impact of music in a powerful story by Amanda Nowlin-O’Banion. Tiffany Lee Brown’s gripping story of a Reno shooting ends with a twist. Plus, works by Gretchen Moran Laskas, Russell Rowland, Leigh H. Edwards, and more

It is often said life is at its cruelest when a parent outlives his or her child. As unnatural as that may seem, many parents find themselves in that position. Whether caused by disease, illness, accident, crime, or suicide, parents can find themselves making funeral arrangements rather than planning a child’s birthday party, graduation, or wedding. Author Sue Parker knows firsthand what that is like. In Chasing Shadows: A Mother’s Attempt to Process Her Grief, Parker shares her experiences after the death of her youngest child. For much of 2012, Rowan said he wouldn’t live to see 2013. After all, the Mayan calendar ended on December 22, 2012, so he reckoned everyone was going to die. Rather than dwell on the negativity, he grabbed every opportunity with enormous enthusiasm, including a quad bike ride that cost him his life on Boxing Day. Bereft, heartbroken, in a state of total shock, and struggling to survive, Parker felt she had two choices. She could follow him over a cliff or try to make some sense of the tragic turn her family’s lives had taken. Everyone’s experiences are different, but in Chasing Shadows: A Mother’s Attempt to Process Her Grief, those going through similar circumstances may find help in knowing what to do next...how to go forward. You’ll discover the path forward is not always easy, and there will likely be times when you find yourself wondering, Why bother? Through her experience, Parker shows you can go on, and you should.
