“Resilience” Review by Dawn DeBraal

Greetings!

Check out this wonderful review on Amazon by Dawn DeBraal:

Resilience is a delightful book of short stories. Tales of youth and aging. Love and loss. Life and death. Jim Bates has the ability to make you feel the hometown atmosphere of his characters, as well as to laugh at youth and, to survive the delicate balance that life can be. My favorite story was Sugarfoot, the story of a man who gets out of prison and immediately steals a car and gets lost in the desert. The searchers depend on a tracking dog named Sugarfoot. I think I enjoyed this story most of all because it was so different from the others. I had read a good deal of this author’s work, so I was excited to see some new material in this book as well as some of my favorites.

I live in Long Lake, Minnesota. I enjoy walking, gardening, bird watching, reading, writing, bicycle riding and playing with my fantastic grand kids. I have two wonderful boys who I see as often as I can. I'm retired after working many years as a sales and technical development and training instructor. I have also worked in a family owned garden center and most recently was part owner of a small gift shop near to where I live. I collect old marbles, vintage dinky toy race cars, YA books from the 1900's and vintage radios from the 30's and 40's. I am a passionate yo-yo player. I am a fortunate man - life is very good. My stories and poems have appeared in over two-hundred online and print publications including online in CafeLit, The Writers' Cafe Magazine, Cabinet of Heed, Paragraph Planet, Nailpolish Stories, Ariel Chart, Potato Soup Journal, Literary Yard, Spillwords (Dec, 2019, Author of the Month), The Drabble, The Academy of the Heart and Mind, World of Myth Magazine, The Horror Tree, The Terror House, Fox Hollow Stories and Bindweed Press.
