One day, a young man saw a little girl chasing a balloon down the street. She was headed toward an intersection and not paying attention. The young man, Charlie Wilson, ran across the street and shoved her out of the path of the truck.

He saved her life but died from the injuries of being hit by the truck that would have hit her.

Now, eight years later, his mom has lost interest in her life and her friends because she still misses Charlie. Michelle, meantime, has discovered that Charlie meant something to more than just his mother. There were a half dozen others in the neighborhood who depended on Charlie. Michelle decides to do something to not only help them but also to help his mom.

She decides to write about all the good deeds that Charlie did for people in chalk on the sidewalk so that not only the neighborhood will see it, but his mom will also see it.

But there is a storm coming and the rain will threaten to wash away Michelle's fragile sidewalk story. What will she do?

A heart warming story about friendship, Chalk Story is about 120 manuscript pages in length.

A portion of sales from Chalk Story will go toward charity.
