Parenting a toddler? Need tips?

Sara spent much of her childhood in conversation with a Radio Shack cassette recorder. Never far from a book, or a microphone, Sara attended Emerson College, further honing her storytelling skills. She has been a tour guide, volunteer textbook reader, and a college lecturer; all of which brought her back to the mic. A rare INTJ, Sara pulls her introverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging (but not too judging, she's only being realistic) self out of her booth to engage with her family, including a supportive spouse, two brilliantly-brained kiddos, and their boisterous boxer dog.

WHAT LISTENERS ARE SAYING: ZEUS, INC. by Robin Burks " Burks pens a powerful tale that changes tonally as the story progresses. This is not a humor type book in the outright, but it does have hints of Adams and Pratchett in its flavoring. It ALSO has some cyberpunk, mythology, and noir-ish chunks to it as well… Sheckells is worth every penny as the narrator. She really clothes herself in an Alex suit, and then takes off running and dares you to catch up to her. She is pitch perfect in her role as the guide into Burks' world. " Ray | Audible Listener Review FINDER THE TRUE STORY OF A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR by Marilyn Greene & Gary Provost “This is a must read for anyone interested in a career in law enforcement, search and rescue, and even parents in general. The information she provided was priceless and a true eye opener regarding the sad reality of how cases of missing people are often handled in this country. Additionally, the narrator was so good that it was nearly impossible to comprehend that the voice I was hearing was not the actual voice of the author - that is how well the narrator captured the emotion behind each story in this book. 100% enjoyable audio book experience, through and through.” Ad n’ Audie | Audible Listener Review NEVER SAY NECKLACE by Jaclyn Hardy (Weist) “The storyline is captivating. I thought the author wrote some great twists, and liked the aspect of not knowing who to trust. The chemistry between the main characters was great. Sara K. Sheckells performed this book flawlessly. I loved how she had distinguishable voices for the various characters. She really did an outstanding job with just the right emotions for each scene.” Jan | Audible Listener Review LIFE AS A SPECTRUM MOM by Karen Pellett “This was a wonderful read, not only to understand more about how complex it is to be a spectrum parent, but that we are not alone. There is support and understanding out there - and the authors story helped me to understand some things about my own children. Also, very engagingly read by the narrator. I found myself driving the long way a lot to listen to more.” Vanessa | Audible Listener Review THE TO DO LIST by JC Miller "The narration was exceptional. Sheckells took us on a wonderful journey that never disappointed. The author created the characters (and major kudos to JC Miller) but Sheckells made Ginny real. I felt everything. Every. Thing." Dee | Audible Listener Review SAVING GRACE by Aubrey Wynne “Her character voices are a delight from her sexy males to her sweet females...The audio I think is much better than reading it; the narrator brings so much to this story really touching your heart giving you emotion you can hold on to…Her performance was outstanding which made this a win, win listen for me.” Cyn | Audible Listener Review
