I am a storyteller. I would enjoy being your narrator and telling you about Chris and Valya's adventure in person, while sitting by a crackling campfire, with a butter-colored moon rising above a birch grove and the mist billowing in over a silent river. That way, I would know if the story enthralled or scared you, if Valya's actions made you curious or angry, if you hated Prascovia or felt sorry for the desperate woman. It is important for me to know your reaction, to hear your opinion. I would love it if you kindly gave me a few minutes of your time and wrote to me.
