    Do you have an Mp3 or recording of the story about your daughter and the time she sort of separated from your dog? I think she was five and the story was about how your daughter was growing up. I loved that story. I hope you know which one I’m talking about. :-)

    Hi Whitney

    Michael Cotter does not use the internet – and this page is not published by him so it is highly unlikely that he will read your note and answer your question –

    Sorry.

    All the Best

    I first heard stories told by Michael Cotter at Wintertales in Oklahoma City. It was a great experience to listen to personal stories.
    Not only is Michael a great storyteller, he is also a very caring person. Hope all is well with him.

    On the previous screen which came up on google, you said to contact you, but no address or was was given.
    I have loved your stories since Jonesborough, some years ago. I wrote you and purchased more tapes from you. I believe I purchased one or more at Jonesborough. Do you have stories on CD’s? or MP3’s?
    I grew up on a farm in upstate South Carolina and the stories ’struck home’. I am a 77 year old lady. Thanks.

    Am trying to find Michael Cotter’s story “People of the earth”. It was about working the fields and encountering wild life during his plowing and haying. Thanks for any info if A C.D. is available or any other info you may have, Larry

    Michael Cotter does not have any web presence nor has he ever recorded any CD’s that I know of. So I am sorry to say as far as I know that you will have to relie on your memory or find the teller himself.
