This is a story about a stenography machine, and an unusual group of people who meet in a basement ....
To Catch a Skerry
Magic runs in the family, so when cousin Rupert comes to spend the summer with Damson and her mother, there are magic tricks, a little transdimensional tomfoolery, and, of course, poetic justice.
The Frog and Banjo
A story you've never heard before where neither the frog or the banjo are quite what you might think at first - a mystical pair who surprised everyone and taught a few lessons.
Sketching and Painting
Who makes the woods beautiful in the Fall and how is it done? You might never see them quite the same again.
One day in September, 40 years of the companionship of a forest brings a hermit to the culmination of his life cycle.
Easy to drift off to at the end of the hectic day - thank you so much for your stories. Keep it up please!

My sincere thanks, Mr Jacklin. I have so enjoyed your stories especially at night when my mind seems to spin out, hashing out the day. So impressed with your talent, your deep, soothing voice and your writing. I’m always touched and comforted at times.
I want some more, please!
I have tried many many bedtime story apps, but always come back to Borders of Sleep. I have fallen asleep to these amazing, creative stories countless times. The use of language and the tone of Mr Jacklin’s voice are exactly the ticket to sweet dreams. But I want more of these wonderful bedtime stories.
