Paul Steven Stone

Paul Steven Stone (COM’68) of Plymouth, Mass., published two books in 2023: The Snow That Never Fell (Alien Buddha Press), a novel “about the challenges—both poignant and humorous—facing divorced single fathers,” and Cock-A-Doodle-Don’t (AM Ink Publishing), a children’s book in which a bevy of farm animals finally rebel against the barnyard rooster that wakes them up every morning at dawn. “As I have elsewhere described: The rooster meant no harm/To all the animals on the farm/He only crowed Cock-A-Doodle-Doo/Because that’s what roosters do./But the animals hatched a plan/And that’s the plot of our book./Filled with giggles end to end/Your children will love to take a look!” Email Paul at
