Found Among Places
By Jeremy Martin

Series Description:

I'm currently traveling, but I'm traveling slowly. I spend about a month in each place I visit because it gives me the time to get a feeling for what its like to live there and not just to see the sights as a tourist. So while I'm in town, I learn as much as I can about where I am, I walk alot, and I meet people. I build habits. I form a picture in my mind of the place I am staying, and then I write a short piece of fiction set in that place. The topics of the stories vary, and the perspective changes every month. The idea isn't to tell my story; after all, as a visitor, I'm only passing through. The idea is to tell the story of a place as I've learned to see it, which is but one of many ways to see. By writing these stories, I intend to explore things both familiar and strange, secret and well known. I intend to look into what we can find among places, and I hope by reading you can too.

Author Bio For Jeremy Martin:

Jeremy is an American writer and traveler, because the two go so well together. Traveling, as Marcel Proust wrote, "consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." What better way for a writer to spend his time than to constantly refresh his eyes? In exploring new places, Jeremy finds new ideas and familiar concepts, beautiful places and fascinating cultures. Both the differences and similarities that exist between cultures are valuable, and the biggest similarity between cultures is that they all tell stories. Telling stories is a human trait, and as a writer, Jeremy values storytelling in all its forms. His work explores the way that stories can connect, demystify, and esteem the diversity of human cuture and experience.
