About the Author: E. Nesbit

Edith (E.) Nesbit was a master at weaving imagination and real life into timeless fairy tales, with fantastic mythical creatures, princes and princesses, magic, and just the right touch of silliness.

In “A Woman of Passion: The Life of E. Nesbit, 1858-1924”, Julia Briggs labeled Edith Nesbit Bland as the “first modern writer for children” and credits Nesbit with having invented the children’s adventure story. Some of her best known stories are The Railway

Children, Five Children and It and her Bastable family stories, The Story of the Treasure Seekers and The Wouldbegoods. Her stories combined realistic children in real-world settings with magical objects and adventure, including travel to fantastical lands. She has

influenced such writers as P.L. Travers (Mary Poppins), Edward Eager (Tales of Magic) and J.K. Rowling and several of her stories have been adapted for film and television. Nesbit was a free thinker, a political activist, and co-founder of the Fabian Society. A young Noel Coward, who was a great admirer of hers, once said she was “the most genuine Bohemian I had ever seen”.

About the NarratorKaren Krause

Karen grew up in a musical family and started singing with her daddy’s band when she was knee-high to a grasshopper, as they say in her native Ozark Mountains. She’s been performing ever since, playing to anyone who would sit still long enough. When she wasn’t demanding to be the center of attention, she was high in her backyard tree reading just about anything she could get her hands on. Her love of theatre and the stage grew from school plays and backyard shows to a college degree and regional theatre. And her love of literature grew as well. She discovered the world of audiobooks when they really were books on tape and has been an avid fan ever since. About five years ago, she had an epiphany (why it took her so long is a mystery). She could combine her love of performing with her love of the spoken word. She recorded her first audiobook in 2012 and hasn’t looked back. She just finished her 39th book and it will be released on Audible in June.
