Tales + Tails: Books + Culture + Compassion

HBT speaks to and from the heart, to connect lovers — of pets, authors, reading — and of my still-unreleased novels. Listeners engage as I learn the art of podcasting for when my books are serialized as their own podcasts. My novels, “Flamenco + the Sitting Cat” and “Tango + the Sitting Cat,” are my love letters to all who fear they're too odd, too damaged, too old, too whatever to find love and happiness with or without a partner.
