Start with one. You’ll be back.

Thoughtful and unusual stories that unfold gradually and deliberately. Smith-Seetachitt’s writing entertains, inspires thought, and is subtly vivid. Best of all, she reads it well.

Lovely quiet story full of vague references that allow the listener’s mind to fill in the blanks. Beautiful. Thank you, Barrington!
