Because all of life is stories.
I’m a freelance writer and audiobook narrator who has spent nearly a decade working with and selling books.
I love recommending books to people. Taking something I love, or have heard so much about, or from an author I’ve followed for years and waving it in front of someone’s face and exclaiming loudly, “You should read this! Go! Make tea! Cocoon yourself in blankets and consume this beautiful wonder!” is just one of the best things in the world.
I also like to play tabletop and videogames, and as I don’t sell most of those things at my bookstore, am happy to yell about them to you here on the internet, as I’m sure I am the only human who has ever thought to do that.
Stories are wonderful things. And whether you’re reading them, listening to them, watching them, or creating them through play and work, they matter. I love the power that they have to change both the world and ourselves.
I hope you share that love. Or if not, that we can cultivate it here.
At the very least, I hope you enjoy your stay.
