This book contains selected prose, essays, thoughts and musings from the journals of Justin C. Mainhart, also known as JCM. “An Exquisite Stranger's Tales” chronicles his journeys thus far in life, such as attaining and living the American Dream then losing it all due to his battles with his own personal demons. His works are his views on human nature and the human condition, either taken from his own life experiences or from what he's witnessed in others. He prides himself on being able to “speak” to just about anyone about anything. But his main goal is for his words to help someone struggling with some inner turmoil or some other issue in their lives that they are unable to find the words to express what they feel themselves. He truly cares about his fellow man and only desires to help ease the pain and strife others are dealing with. He wants to be the voice of the voiceless; the giver of hope to the hopeless; to bring joy to those who have been saturated in sorrow.
