“Cornfields to City Streets ~ Everything That Lies Between: A Collection of Short Stories & Lessons in Life” is a collection of short stories based on the real life events and happenings of Jon Patrick Sage. These were written over a period of 15 years, and reflect a growth and maturity in character that most undergo, but few bother to record in prose.

If so- it will be found, and this is the essence of “Cornfields to City Streets ~ Everything That Lies Between: A Collection of Short Stories & Lessons in Life”.
