I'm an Emeritus Professor of English, Santa Barbara City College, Santa Barbara, California, where I taught for twenty-three years. Before that I taught for seven years at South High School, Torrance, California. Before that I spent three years, five months, and five days in the navy.

I earned degrees from Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, and California State University, Long Beach. During my thirty-year teaching career, I published twenty-two college textbooks, primarily in the areas of developmental reading, writing and study skills.

I've published several adult short stories, several of which appear in my short story collection, Teacher, Teacher, I Declare! Several of my young adult novels have won awards. See http://www.rairaru

The Snowman on the Pitcher's Mound

Snowman on the Pitcher's Mound Snowman on the Pitcher's Mound by Jamie Reno

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A wonderful book that not only helps young people understand the death of a loved one, but reminds readers of all ages of the need for love and understanding we all require. This is a book for parents and kids. Not only is the story entertaining, but it is funny and poignant at the same time.
