I'm not encouraging strangers to read the stories or to take them. They're
simply quick little stories to entertain kids. If you want to read my
*great* works, you'll have to buy the books. <grin>

If someone redistributes a story and gives me credit, I suppose that's a
kind of recognition, is it not?

If someone put *my* stories on *their* web page without credit, I'd come
down on them as hard as I could. However, I recognize there is a risk of
that happening and accept it. You can also link to my stories without
taking them away and calling them yours.

I used to write stories on my daughter's lunch bags. She complained that
the teachers were taking them and keeping them. They were *her* stories. A
word to the teachers was sufficient.
