It is an honor to welcome, Eileen Charbonneau, award-winning author of ten novels, nine of them novels. Eileen is represented by the Aponte Literary Agency, (that’s Natalie Aponte sitting next to her).
My pal and fellow Aponte Literary agency novelist Juilene Osborne-McKnight is fond of saying that we humans are hotwired for story. As professional storytellers both separately and together (as Sisters in Story), we have experienced the profound power of story first hand.
I remember sweating bullets when I was last on the bill at a regional Boy Scout meeting. After the ceremonies, the loud sing alongs, the sugary snack time, I felt like I was walking into the ring of Dante’s Inferno. But as soon as I began the story of a boy who made friends with an eagle and asked to fly with him to Skyland, all was quiet. What would happen next? Why didn’t the boy heed the eagle’s warnings about boundaries? Would the boy ever find his way home?
