Phil’s latest Project – Me and Neal audio books. AVAILABLE NOW!

If you feel like laughing…head to meandneal.com

These audiobooks, about a little girl (Me) and her new baby brother, were developed as a fun project during these difficult times. They are stories told from the point of view of a very precocious little girl who offers astute and often hilarious observations of life with her new baby brother, her family and the wider world as she sees it.  

With a child’s perspective at play, the stories are full of innocent irreverence and they were created with one simple goal in mind … to bring laughter into the lives of those who choose to listen to them.
