From other storytellers….

“There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.”

 – J.K. Rowling, novelist, screenwriter and film producer

“Tell the story that’s been growing in your heart, the characters you can’t keep out of your head, the tale story that speaks to you, that pops into your head during your daily commute, that wakes you up in the morning.”

Jennifer Weiner, writer, television producer, and journalist

Stories create community, enable us to see through the eyes of other people, and open us to the claims of others.”

Peter Forbes, photographer and author
