Noteworthy Notes:
  • Affrilachian Tales: Folktales from the African-American Appalachian Tradition  You can also find Affrilachian Tales on!  And my second Parkhurst Brothers publication, Beyond the Briar Patch, is available, too!  Woo-hoo, y'all!
  • Both books won awards!  Affrilachian Tales received two awards, the 2013 Anne Izard Storytellers' Choice Award, and a 2013 Storytelling World Resource Award.  Beyond the Briar Patch has also received the 2015 Anne Izard Storytellers' Choice Award.  Wow!  I am feelin' good about all of that! Thank you to all who believe in what I do, and support my work.
  • Book #3 from Parkhurst Brothers!  Look for HOT WIND, BOILING RAIN: SCARY STORIES FOR STRONG HEARTS. Enjoy the stories.  Try the writing exercises in the back of the book.  Remember, this one is not for the kiddies, or the faint of heart!
  • MY VIDEOS!!! Available thanks to the great folks who make the St. Louis Storytelling Festival such wonderful event, and the Columbus Dispatch.
