Let me tell you a story….

That’s what this podcast is about – stories.  I love to write them and I would love to share them with you.

Stories are always tumbling in my head and I let them crawl onto the page without regard to whether they fit into a specific genre.  So you will find many types of stories here.

Many of the stories are told over several weeks, some are just one episode long. Click the Episode number to listen.

All names, characters, places, entities, and incidents in these stories are either the product of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously.
