Noteworthy Notes:

  • 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 is an award-winning one that is not for the kiddies, or the faint of heart!
