LYN FORD, STORYTELLER - TELLER OF HOME-FRIED TALES

SHARING STORIES IS SHARING A PART OF OUR HEARTS... 

The world is such a small place, and it is our only home.  No matter what some people or politics might try to tell us, we are one family, sharing one home, invested in one future.  The story we create, the story we share as individuals, is only one paragraph in a much greater narrative.  Shouldn't our part of the story speak from the heart of empathy? 


Lyn's books are available from her publisher,

Parkhurst Brothers,www.parkhurstbrothers.com

and several book distributors:  Amazon, Barnes & Noble...  A Google title or name search gets you there!

I'm also getting many calls for creative writing workshops.  My first online creative-writing sessions, Fantastic Folktales & Visionary Angles to Transform Our Stories, became available through the Transformative Language Arts Network.  I am so grateful for my connections to this organization, and the works of heart that it nurtures and supports.  For more information, go to tlanetwork.org
