Author Richard Austerman’s New Audiobook, “Witches,” Follows One Young Man’s Adventurous Travels That Put His Courage to the Ultimate Test and Change His Life Forever –

Kodiak, AK, December 26, 2023 –(– Richard Austerman, an Alaskan-born author who has spent most of his life there, has completed his new audiobook, “Witches”: a gripping story of a young farmer’s son who sets off on a perilous quest to learn more about the world beyond his family’s farm, and soon finds himself swept up in an adventure to save the queen and defend his country from dangerous witches, all while discovering mysterious encounters and using his special gift of communicating with animals to achieve his goals.

“This is a story of a young man on a quest to learn how other people in his country live,” writes Austerman. “Rolfe is the son of a farmer, so he wants to know what other farmers are growing. Rolfe is bigger than most men and can take care of himself. He has a kind heart and a gentle soul who wishes to help those in need. But do not get him upset, or you’ll pay the price. He meets and saves the Queen of his country. He also meets the love of his life. For saving the Queen, the King grants Rolfe the deed to land next to his father’s farm. Two witches take men from a town on the country’s northern edge and use them as their assassins. On more than one occasion, an assassin tried to kill Rolfe.”
