Part of My Story
By a humanoid sometimes called Gary Gazlay
I really struggled in school especially during my early years. I remember elementary school and being placed in the lowest reading group and not being able to comprehend what I just read. I remember not being able to spell or understanding language arts and having to be tutored. I always felt embarrassed when I was asked to read something out loud in front of the class and I really felt like I was stupid and something was wrong with me.
Even though I had a difficult time in reading and expressing myself in words, I had the ability to use vocabulary words to make up sentences and phrases that didn’t make any sense at all. I would place them on greeting cards and even wrote a book. To my surprise I found that my inadequacies expressed in a different way actually made people laugh (especially my wife) when they tried to figure out what they were reading. I would tell them that the reading of the phrases actually was making them smarter by exercising their brain.
All of the books that I have written, were birthed from my childhood experiences and challenges. The books developed for children were created as a tool to help kids read, and hopefully bring smiles to all of their precious faces. The other books were written to hopefully make people laugh.
