Have you ever ridden on an elevator with a group of strangers and wondered how each of them came to be there? What story brought them to the elevator at just this moment in time? And where will their story go when they leave? As the lawyer, a tired old cynic, waits for the elevator to take him up to yet another court appearance, various others on their way to court join him. Each has stories that are fascinating and tragic, while touched with a raw humor. From the elderly woman trying to pick up the pieces of her grandchildren's broken lives to the self-sacrifice of a young veteran, readers discover the histories that brought each of the characters to this courthouse elevator. It is a tale of lives that briefly intersect before continuing down their own paths, and it is a story that resonates in the hearts of us all. Author Ricardo T. Cox, Esquire, is an attorney living in Tampa, Florida. Publisher's website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/ShareTheElevator.html

William Dean Howells (1837-1920) was an American realist author and literary critic. He wrote his first novel, Their Wedding Journey, in 1871, but his literary reputation really took off with the realist novel A Modern Instance, published in 1882, which describes the decay of a marriage. His 1885 novel The Rise of Silas Lapham is perhaps his best known, describing the rise and fall of an American entrepreneur in the paint business. His social views were also strongly reflected in the novels Annie Kilburn (1888) and A Hazard of New Fortunes (1890). While known primarily as a novelist, his short story "Editha" (1905) - included in the collection Between the Dark and the Daylight (1907) - appears in many anthologies of American literature. Howells also wrote plays, criticism, and essays about contemporary literary figures such as Ibsen, Zola, Verga, and, especially, Tolstoy, which helped establish their reputations in the United States. He also wrote critically in support of many American writers. It is perhaps in this role that he had his greatest influence.
