CHILDHOOD REGAINED: Stories of Hope for Asian Child Workers

A charity anthology, this collection of short stories was compiled by editor, Jodie Renner, to raise money for groups working to end child labor in Asia. The stories not only raise awareness of the horrible conditions children are forced to work in, but also give hope that change is possible. My three stories were written at the invitation of the editor: “Sanjay’s Mountain” shows a young boy’s courageous escape from a carpet shack and his journey through higher education to serve his own people in Nepal. “River of Life” shows a young orphan’s creative use of welding tools and the help of his friends to escape a junkyard imprisonment and begin a new life. “Frozen Tears” follows a young girl as all emotion is drained from her life in the sex trade, in a collapsing sewing factory, and finally a switched identity and escape. Following years of rehabilitation and education, she finds hope and purpose and regains the ability to experience emotion once again.
