We are Creative, Innovative, and Positive.
I grew up on a small cattle farm located near Mt. Zion, Missouri. The place is so small that I doubt you can find it on a map, but I’ve yet to find the sense of belonging and community spirit of it anywhere else. My sister and brother were, and still are, my most treasured friends. Whenever possible, we hunt and fish and enjoy the outdoors together. From my father, I developed a love of farming and gardening; and from my mother I got my resilience and my fierce motivation.
In 1999, I graduated from the University of Central Missouri (UCM) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and went to work in the accounting field. That same year, I married my best friend, James Hinkle and we made our home in Clinton, Missouri. We have two great kids-Maddact and Aidin-who are the inspiration and desperation behind everything we do.
My husband and I operated our own screen printing and embroidery business starting in 2001, before branching out to start my own tax and bookkeeping service in 2007. In 2009 we started Cinemaddact, LLC-a video production company-that has expanded to include voiceover and audiobook narration services.
I love the discovery in learning new things, so I guess you could say I’m a perpetual student. In 2014, I completed my MBA work at UCM, and I’m currently studying for my CPA certification. Reading is my passion, even when I’m not in front of the microphone, so you’ll often find me curled up with a good book. I also love the outdoors, so I take every opportunity to get out in the sunlight for nature walks, hunting and fishing, and any other excuse that may present itself. Frequently, you will even find me fixing fence or vaccinating calves with my Mom, brother, sister and our families on the farm where I was raised in Mt. Zion, Missouri.

I've read RaShelle Workman's teen books and audios but this is my first contemporary romance story that I've listened to. I will be honest and just throw it out there that I don't care for contemporary or historical romance stories but I really enjoyed Workman's story. I found myself engrossed in this story and its one of those I found myself engrossed in this story and its one those stories that you can connect to. This could've been a true story because in reality, finding happiness like Simone and Sam really happen in real life. I believe this is why I found myself glued to this story. It doesn't sound fake, nor feel fake. Stories like this, no matter how short, or even simple is what makes a talented author. This story just feels right, I felt happy at times, sad, and I laughed, and I even cried. This story has touched me and RaShelle, if you thought I was a fan before, I must say that this story has won me over, and now I can honestly say, I'm a HUGE fan now.
Narrator Stacy Hinkle did a wonderful with her telling of Summer Love. I was surprised at how good she was with distinguishing each characters voice and accents. It was easy to identify each character throughout this story. Stacy brought this story to life and I was glued to Summer Love from start to finish. Overall, I give it a perfect 5 star rating!
This are the Short Film Stacy has directed.
