Hello Friends on Goodreads! If you like listening to audiobooks, you should check out mine! I am a newly minted audiobook narrator, and this is my first official project. It should be hitting Amazon Audible pretty soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

An enjoyable romp around 17th century England with two plucky teens; the plot was well-paced to keep me interested.

Folklore and the history of magic are also a continual source of inspi ...more
