About the Book

“The Monster Pig” is a story of a young boy’s imagination and his uncle’s exaggeration. It will lead you down a path of his imagination, right to the pen of the monster pig.

“A Ride on the Silver” tells the tale of an old man’s experiences as a young boy, starting a summer lawn-mowing business. He recalls the work, the sweat, the tears—and a true and lasting friendship.

“The Radio” is the story of a young girl ripped from her friends in a small town, only to find a series of heartwarming events unfolding in her new home.

“The Leather Sandals” shares a familary story. Everybody knows how the story of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ evolved. This is another side of the account, purely fictional but Christian in intent, of how a blind sandal maker becomes a great shepherd.

“The Babyl Stone” takes you on a journey through time, as you follow the stone from the beginning of civilization to possibly the end of time.

About the Author

J. Curtis Smith has been writing short stories for the last twenty years. He loves to tell stories. Most of his works have a theme, based on morality, friendship, exaggeration, imagination, and life lessons with a good moral base. He enjoys writing about the past and the present with simple, everyday themes—nothing to big and nothing to small, just normal people stories.

Smith has been in the oil and gas business all his life. He enjoys collecting things that have to do with history and spending time with his two children, Austin and Allie.

Smith lives in Lindsay, Oklahoma, a small community in the heartland. He has lived there all his life and has traveled to many places in the world.

He is a people person that doesn’t know a stranger, and he thinks all people have a story to tell. The most interesting stories are those about everyday life, whether it is the present, the past, or the future.
