I'd Like to Read You a Story

You may find yourself with extra time and extra stress these days. You’re not alone; I feel that way too. As I wondered what I could do to not only help myself but also help others through this crisis, I realized that I could tell stories. 

One of the most frequent comments I receive from readers is that while reading my books they felt as if they were with me hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, or wolf watching in Yellowstone. Transporting with words someone who feels confined to their house or their neighborhood seems like a good idea. 

So today I begin a series of weekly posts in which I will read a story to you. 

Please let me know your reaction to this. If it’s helpful, I’ll continue. If not, I’ll try to figure out something else to help. We’re all in this together.

This week's reading describes the sights, sounds, and emotions of a moonlit walk in Yellowstone's wild Lamar Valley in the snow and below zero temperature. My reading is accompanied by an original piano composition by Suzannah Doyle.
