Beyond is a young adult short story collection that cross cultures and take place in settings from North America to Europe. A metaphysical / religious motif binds the collection, and stories are set in times dating back to 1932—when swing dancing was the rage—to a recent state science competition in New Mexico. “Play” deals with a girl’s attempt to mitigate her feelings about violence in the home; in “Callanish Stones”, a young boy is found on a remote beach in Scotland, barely alive; “Finding Edith Allen” centers on a young woman in search of her birth mother; and “Mont. St. Michel” tells the story of a child raised by a Bishop in France. The stories mix male and female protagonists with families and friends, often in school or Catholic settings. “Michigan artist, Ron Teachworth, has turned his talents from visual art to Literary art. Ron has an incredible command of setting. His novel is set in Florence, Italy, and his short stories take place in Scotland, France, Canada, New Mexico, Tennessee, Michigan and beyond. His protagonists are equally comfortable as young men or women. There's plenty of adventure at hand, the writing is beautiful yet accessible, and all the pieces are linked by religious/spiritual and even metaphysical motifs. The work has that classic, enduring quality that you recognize instantly.” Kimberly Kafka, Author

About the Author:

My life’s work has been in visual art, film and television. I wrote and directed an independent feature film for Vestron Pictures, Going Back, starring Bruce Campbell. The film did well in the market. I followed up with a children’s book, Two Stones and recently completed a commercial adult novel, An Attraction Beyond Vows. I have taught at the high school and university level, and I currently write for ArtHopper.org a web site where I write reviews of art exhibitions in the Midwest. For published work: Art Reviews: http://arthopper.org under the name Ron Scott  Film: http://www.goingbackthemovie.com Book: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/two-stones/id430675735?mt=8 I graduated from Wayne State University with an MA in Painting. I attended London Film School and then started writing for film and educational television. I have been producing art in the Detroit area since 1968, and this includes producing fiction and visual art using a variety of different media. I was born in Detroit, and I have resided, gone to school, and published extensively in Detroit. I have always considered myself part of the Detroit Art Community. I wrote a short story and then expanded it into an original screenplay in 1982. Going Back was produced in 1984 as an independent feature film and was immediately pick up by Vestron Pictures in 1985. At the time, I was writing and producing television for public schools and Michigan State University. This became the foundation for the development of my writing skill. In the mid 1990's I wrote a short story, Two Stones, that went on to be published in 2004. I have published a short story collection: Beyond’s Young Adult short stories cross cultures and take place in settings from North America to Europe. A metaphysical / religious motif binds the collection, and stories are set in times dating back to 1932—when swing dancing was the rage—to a recent state science competition in New Mexico. “Play” deals with a girl’s attempt to mitigate her feelings about violence in the home; in “Callanish Stones”, a young boy is found on a remote beach in Scotland, barely alive; “Finding Edith Allen” centers on a young woman in search of her birth mother; and “Mont. St. Michel” tells the story of a child raised by a Bishop in France. The stories mix male and female protagonists with families and friends, often in school or religious settings. Beyond is a collection of 11 stories with a word count around 70,000.
