This is an advanced reading from my new book – The Accidental Traveler – to be published in 2018. This book is a compilation of fifteen travel vignettes that are based on a lifetime of loving and traveling around the world.
My travels, though, were never the jet-set variety. I moved to a new city or country or continent because I was forced to find a new home, go to a new school, or follow a family member. It is in adversity and in taking the path less traveled that I feel stories grow and thrive. So here’s one I hope you’ll enjoy.
I’ll share this short story in four episodes – a new one every week – to make it easy for you to listen to a snippet when you have 10 minutes of downtime for yourself. Enjoy!
Beginnings, the short story prequel to the Red-Heeled Rebels series is a story of innocence, audacity, and death. This is also the beginning of the adventures of the Red Heeled Rebels, a band of gutsy, young women who fight for their rights and travel the world to find freedom. Watch the video to hear a reading of the first chapter to Beginnings.
