A Christmas Carol

Boy do I have a special treat for you--and it is best enjoyed right now, with the holidays fast approaching! But first, prepare yourself: relax into a soft armchair, preferably by the fireplace, and have something soothing to drink, such as eggnog.

So now, here is a wonderful performance of Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. For the very few who never heard about it, this is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. You'll love to hate Scrooge. You'll enjoy this amazingly witty writing.

Take a listen. And if you wonder about these wonderful voices, they all belong to one magical performer: Don Warrick. He is an actor, Teacher, performer, choral conductor, and audiobook producer. If that's not enough he is also a whole cast of characters from my books and from other books penned by my fellow authors. 

I have been blessed to work with him on two audiobook projects, and we are working on the third one, Marriage before Death, as we speak. Don is a man of all ages; and he can become a woman at the drop of a coin, changing accents while he's at it... So sit back and let him sweep you away to a different place, a different time:
