I'm sorry to hear about your visual impairment. My books Kinflicks, Blood Feud, and Swan Song are available as audiobooks, but not the others. Though I think if you order the Kindle version of the others, you can enable a speech function. I've never tried this, so I don't know how well it does or doesn't work. Best wishes, Lisa(less)

I used to always go skiing. But I hurt my back and don't ski now. I find if I take attention away from my muse, she sometimes starts clamoring to try to get it back!(less)

“I happen to feel that the degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic.”
Lisa Alther

“I always thought it was a question of achieving some permanent state of tranquillity ... but it's not. It's more like learning to surf. The waves keep rolling in, each different from the last, and you have to ride them, instead of getting pounded to bits.”
Lisa Alther, Other Women

“no pain was permanent, and no loss was real. That even though people treated each other abominably, even though they left, even though you let them go, even though you never laid eyes on them again, this fugue that linked you continued, whether you liked it or not.”
Lisa Alther, Bedrock
