A Message from Stephanie Abrams about our theme music:

The song, “The Irish Jaunting Car,” dates back to before the American Civil War. The Irish jaunting car was a one-horse carriage and jaunting referred to making the horse prance a bit during the ride. My very good friend, Derek Warfield, and the very talented Young Wolfe Tones, have given us permission to use their recording of The Irish Jaunting Car as a “gift of love” for which we are very grateful! You’ll find that song on their newest album, “Last Man Standing.” That fabulous banjo playing you’ll hear when you click on the play button below, is provided by Demaris Woods, an exceptionally talented and world-renowned banjo artist.

Below is the full rendition of Derek Warfield & The Young Wolf Tones performing, “The Irish Jaunting Car.” Have a listen and raise your spirits!

  1. Hi Stephanie, Can’t find an email for you. Hope you see this. I enjoyed your novel, RUMORS; it gets the reader right into it on page 1 and doesn’t stop. Thanks!

    Wow, Laura! Thanks for the update! I hope you’ll share your remarks at the site of the online bookseller where you bought RUMORS and I hope your husband reads it too . . . and then tell everyone you know how much you enjoyed it! If you can get a group of 5 or more people who have read RUMORS together, I’d love to schedule an online MeetUp to talke with your circle of friends and/or book club! I’m planning to do a number of these book chats online in 2021 so there’s time for people to order RUMORS in print or ebook and have time to read it before whatever date we decide on. More info is provided in the section at called “ABOUT.’ Keep in touch! Hugs, Stephanie
