“Stories” is a collection of fictional stories based on actual events in the life of a woman reaching for challenge and adventure.

“Life is an unpredictable journey. Success is not winning. It is learning and adapting.” This is the theme that Kevin Raney shares in her new book “Stories” (published by AuthorHouse).

“Stories” is a collection of fictional stories based on actual events in the life of a woman reaching for challenge and adventure. Jane learned to be a park ranger, a wildland firefighter and a forester, and then took the risk of starting a small business.

An excerpt from “Stories”:

“Word comes to the Fredonia office that there is a fire on the Mogollon Rim. A North Kaibab fire crew is put together and travels in trucks to Flagstaff, Arizona. We have a short break then head for Sedona, Arizona. By the time we reach our destination it is dark. Following the directions he has received by radio the crew leader takes us toward the Rim. I have no idea what to expect. There is a red glow in the night sky from the wildfire.”

When asked what she wants readers to take away from “Stories,” Raney responded, “Knowledge of the importance of dreaming, planning and education. Knowledge of the importance of standing up for yourself when bullied. Confidence in your ability to face problems and solve them. The importance of family.”
