In podcast #16, we offer another great smorgasbord of stories for your listening pleasure. Some are true, and some came straight from the authors’ imaginations. We begin with the first chapter of Becky Avella’s new release, a romantic suspense novel with the simple title “Targeted.”

Educator, church planter and advocate for the world’s extreme poor, Tri Robinson, writes about his childhood struggles with dyslexia and how he became a teacher in “The Committee for the Reburial of Liver-Eating Johnston: Memoirs of a Dyslexic Teacher.”

We also read from the first book in Dr. Laurie Bower’s fantasy series, “Fairy Wars – The Dark Ones,” and conclude with Pam McCleary’s stroll down memory lane in “As Simple as RC Cola.”

Podcast #15 begins with a true story written by our friend Valerie Tucker. In “Quilts of Comfort,” she writes about a challenging time she and her husband experienced not too long ago.

We’ve already read several short stories from “Passageways.” During this session, we read two more. Peter Leavell’s story about a troubled monk in a dark, isolated monastery is called “Chapel of the Sacred Bramble.” Becky’s “Follow the Moonbeam” features the highs and lows of midlife marriage.

“In Honor of Trees,” our concluding poem, was written by Eugene Shea. You may recognize his name and style from previous podcasts. Enjoy!

As usual our selections today are as varied as their authors. Kristine McCord’s contemporary fiction novel “Outrunning Josephine Finch” and Sandra Kopp’s fantasy novel titled “Warrior Queen of Ha-Ran-Fel” are both well-written, fascinating stories.

“Outrunning Josephine Finch” addresses female relationships and superstitions and is filled with humor and mystery. The “Warrior Queen” pits kingdom against kingdom, good against evil, and has a painfully dark beginning. Both books will leave you wanting to know the rest of the story.

Danney Clark’s short story, “The Picture,” is a heartwarming look at how people change people. Enjoy!

You can learn more about today’s authors at the below websites and find their books on Amazon as well as on other online sources.
