Have you ever had a story idea rattling around in your head and then all of a sudden, the scene just comes to life? Its happened to me twice. ? When I saw the ACX  Challenge to write and/or narrate a scene in which a bell ? is a character, I sat down and wrote a scene. Here’s the narrated version and I’m fired up to find out what happens next.

Enjoy Hells Belles, an original scene of what I plan to to turn into a paranormal cozy mystery. ?


Second audiobook with Book Studio

Super excited to announce I’ve signed with Book Studio to produce a second audiobook project, Gurdjieff and the Women of the Rope! Earlier this year I produced Undiscovered Country: A Spiritual Adventure by Kathryn Hulme. I had never heard of her or her work. But as I learned more about her, I realized what an honor it was to be her voice in this personal memoir.

As soon as Undiscovered Country is published, I’ll let you know!

I’m honored to have narrated Rye’s Reprieve Montana Sky Series (Harper Ranch Book 1) by Louella Nelson.

I’ve been an avid reader of Debra Holland‘s Montana Sky Series, and it was a lot of fun to take on the voices of characters like Prudence Morgan who was a heroine of the related Mail-Order Brides of the West series.

Thank you, Debra & Louella, for this fun project.

About the book

In 1886, gifted surgeon Rye Rawlins is trapped by a tragic secret so painful that he denies his profession and buries himself in a gold mine in Montana Territory. But saving people is second nature, whether it’s doctoring a man mauled by a mountain lion or battling a wolf to save a child. Veterinarian and horse rancher Missouri Harper suffers through the worst winter in Montana history to provide for three beautiful sisters and an ailing aunt. Dangerous storms, privation, and wild predators make survival precarious.

Rye comes to Missouri’s aid, putting his life in danger and Missouri in his debt. As they fall in love, his secret and her promise to remain a spinster to protect the land for her family force them to look within to discover the cost of love.

Rye’s Reprieve was originally published as a Montana Sky Kindle world book.
