    Tales by the Fireside - The War Years Pentalogy

    Tonight we have something a little different. When I initially started reaching out to other authors and poets to see if anyone would like to submit work to be read on the podcast, Neil Willis was among the first to make contact. A very talented poet with a very clear and infectious passion for what he writes. I am very proud to present the War Years Pentalogy, a series of poems that capture the cost of World War 1, the joy of the Roaring 20s, and then finally the heartache and romance that can be found in many stories of World War 2. I would like to sincerely thank Neil for allowing me to read his work.

Relaxing

In the current climate, I need something to help me relax after a stressful day working from home. Listening to these stories certainly helps me to wind down. I recommend everyone listens to this soft, eloquent voice.

So relaxing

I have just come across takes-by-the-fire-side, After listening to a few audio books. Joe has such a nice relaxing voice, the crackling of the fire just makes it much more relaxing. I love all of his stories especially Peter Rabbit, my son loves Joe Reading one of his favourite books.
If you’re looking for a nice relaxing audio book Tales-by-the-fire-side is the best place to look!
We can’t wait for Joe to do more!
