About the Book

"I find your offer sir, to be an agreeable one." This signaled to the crowd that there would not be a hanging, and many began to sullenly walk away upon being denied the once in a lifetime opportunity of seeing an infant strangled:

Life often produces monumental pain and suffering, and yet it is so easy for too many of us to ignore the pain of others we see around us. Five Unexpected Endings is a collection of five short stories, which depict various characters from various backgrounds who all have one thing in common: They are part of the human race.

The stories are meant to entertain, but they are also intended to show that we all have the same fears, insecurities, needs, and desires. We must always consider those we are on the planet with, and we must never consider anyone as less important than we are.

Five Unexpected Endings is meant to uplift and comfort, but it is also meant to warn that there are consequences when we do not respect the humanity of our fellow man.
