The idea for this story began with two characters called 'Yes' and 'No'. They are two mischievous squirrels who confuse everyone by saying one thing but mean another. The script for their scene took me ages to write! Apart from Christmas Magic, this audiobook is my most epic and it includes extremely detailed sound effects.

The score has many sections to it and there's a fun twist in the music at the end which I love. One of the things that make my audio stories special from others you may have heard is the strong-themed original classical music behind the narration. Unlike other audiobooks, the music continues throughout and is an essential part of the stories. However, in this story, I took out the music during the Ice Hockey scene which was a first.

As my Storytime began to grow popular, so did my collection of children's artwork. I began to post children's drawings online making them part of our creative world. Teachers told me that Music Audio Stories drawings are the most talked-about drawings the children do. For at least that week anyway! 😊


Dawn Heslin from Bound4Escape thought this story was great! When I was interviewed by A Blue Million Books, I was asked where I get my ideas from. I’ve always had a creative mind. Stories and music seem to flow out of me naturally. I like the idea of unlikely heroes and characters overcoming obstacles.

In this story, Ronnie the Worm (voiced by me), is determined to get to New York City. The two mischievous squirrels try to confuse her by sending her to an actual big apple. What was not part of their plan, was that the apple was then picked, and taken to a market in New York City! 😁

Ronnie ends up at an Ice Hockey game where she catches 'The Magic Puck', appears on TV, goes to a disco, and has an amazing time. The two mischievous squirrels hear about this and they can't believe that she made it to New York City! This is my way of teaching children to never give up on the things they want to achieve. Never let anyone stop you from following your dreams. I think this is an important message for all of us, not just for children. Follow your dreams...
