Abby's Story

Abby's Fairytales officially launched on January 1, 2024, but the journey started all the way back in 2020. I'd just started telling my niece, Abby, regular stories that I made up just for her, and after telling a particularly good one - which is now lost to the ether - I decided to record them.

Since then, I learned that a lot of parents are nervous about telling stories to their kids because they feel like their stories, and their storytelling, need to be perfect, but that isn't true. Stories are about engaging with your child and creating, if only for a moment, an unbreakable connection with a whole new world that just the two of you share.

Thank you for joining me; I look forward to the journey!

All the best,

Cassie

The best of Abby's Fairytales are adapted from audio form into picture books for children to enjoy on their own. The stories range from magical lands filled with unicorns and fairies to outer space with aliens and explorers. I adapt all of the books myself, but I don't tell all of the stories. More information about available books and recurring characters is available on Abby's Books page.

Meet the Hosts

Cassie

Host and Storyteller

Cassie is the Host and primary Storyteller for Abby's Fairytales. With an MFA in Creative Writing, an MA in Mass Communications, and a PhD-in-progress in Narrative Communications, creating a storytelling podcast was probably written in the stars, but it still surprised her.

 

Cassie manages all of the recording, editing, and other podcast maintenance herself, so please be understanding: she's an English Major.

Abby

Trope Namer and Child Contributor

Abby is the trope namer for Abby's Fairytales and the original listener to Cassie's stories (at least in her generation). Abby began contributing her own stories to the fairytale collection in May of 2023, and her story, The Babies Lost, was adapted to a picture book as part of the Abby's Fairytale Books canon.

 

Despite having one publication under her belt, Abby is still very new to storytelling, so please be kind as you listen to her tales.

Zoe

Abby's Sister and Child Contributor

Zoe is Abby's sister and a recent contributor to Abby's Fairytales. Zoe likes to tell stories about mermaids and witches, and more often than not, someone is turned into a slug. Zoe has a special voice that she uses only for telling stories, which is quite adorable.

Like Abby, Zoe is still learning to tell stories, and she often tells different versions of the same story. Please be patient as Zoe practices her way to becoming a storytelling champ.
