About the Author

Richard Ellis Shaw

The first time I read one of my stories was to the kids in my neighborhood. I was eight years old. There was something about writing and sharing it with others that planted the writing seed in me. A Tapestry of Life’s Journeys is my first book of short stories. I hope you will enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. I grew up in New England. I live in Illinois and have been a middle school teacher and counselor, presently professor National Louis University.
