D is for Duel/One Who Dies as a God Dies Excerpt

Because we're spread out all over the world, Rhonda Parrish asked us to record an excerpt reading of our D IS FOR DINOSAUR stories for publication on her blog. Mine went live this morning.

To Her elder offspring She says - go raid the fridge. Go play outside. Go get a job.
