A Very Special Dedication
Of Habitat, and Hope

The anti-mermaid lives outside her mythical habitat, struggling to swim against the tide of modern life. She’s Covid, coughing, gasping for air, drowning in an alien murky sea of despair, an ocean of grief, pain and sorrow. But she’s tough: a fighter, a lover of the good, a kind nurse, a caring soul, an example to us all. She will make it through, grow a mermaid’s tail of her own, and live to be free: happy, content, swimming in the warm swell of love which tends us all, her underlying torrent of strength, her bubbly, frothy, inexhaustible hope, a driven will to overcome the odds, that will surely see us through!

(New Life after Covid-19)

For the ill, the heroic nurses and doctors of the NHS, carers in homes, at home, essential front-line workers, and the furloughed. That they shall find new hope.

What do I say to Linnea Sage, the voice of Harriet-Jacqui Furl and 137 different characters in 28 short stories? I’m thrilled and delighted to have had the opportunity to bring Is It Today? to life with you. I listen to our stories every day.

Linnea, one of the joys of collaborating with you on Is It Today? LIVE was agreeing challenging goals, setting the tones, accents, personalities. Thrilled at how you brought individuality and depth to my vulnerable characters as they endured distressing conflict.  And I just can’t wait for the dream to come alive! Thank you so much, Linnea.

Hear sensational Linnea Sage bring Is It Today? to life on Amazon, Audible & I-Tunes in June.

Sylvie drifts off to sleep. Somewhere beyond the kissing gate, where the black angels never fly, and the sun always shines, like a red rubbe...
