How awesome is that? And how awesome would it be to hear something similar from one of the Jewel Riders voice actors?

Mother’s Day

We’re wishing all the mothers out there a beautiful Mother’s Day, surrounded by the warmth of those who love you!



Artist and Writer Challenge

Have you submitted your artwork or writing yet for our latest creative challenge? We’ve had some really cool entries already, and hope you get yours in! Remember, submissions close after May 10th! If you need inspiration, check out the Show Bible for some cool tidbits!


New Podcast Episodes

If you haven’t been keeping up with the JRA Podcast, we’ve updated with two new episodes since our last update! In Episode 5, Stormy chats with us about our Archive Showcase, and all the goodies and one-of-a-kind memorabilia you could have seen there. When everything with COVID-19 calms down, we hope to do another Archive Showcase in southern California, so stay tuned for that!

The sixth episode covers our conversation with Jacquesworth from the Avalon Archive about the second book of Avalon: Web of Magic: All That Glitters!

Continuing the Avalon: Web of Magic read-along Podcast series!


We hope you’ve enjoyed reading the first two books of Avalon: Web of Magic with us, and we hope you’ll join us again in July for the third book: Cry of the Wolf! This is our last scheduled book to read through – if you’d like to listen to us recap and discuss more of the series, let us know!

In the meantime, over at our YouTube channel, we have been adding tons of great Avalon content, from music to the full audiobook of Circles in the Stream!  Be sure to check it out!



Fan Fiction Update

It is finished! After almost two years of uploading, Chris has finally finished update the Fan Fiction section of the site! This has been a long-term goal for the site, to archive the fanfic from Stormy’s Avalon. And – appropriately, we might add – the final story is one from Stormy herself! Check out “Another World,” a sort-of sequel to Stormy’s epic Star Stone fic!

Remembering our Interview with Kerry Butler, voice of Princess Gwenevere

Can you believe it’s been three years since Ronnie had that chance to interview and speak with Kerry Butler?? How time flies! He recently put together this video with the interview, his memories, and a brief retrospective of Kerry’s career. We hope you enjoy!



That’s all for now! Stay tuned for lots of fun stuff coming your way – we’re hard at work on some special surprises for the 25th Anniversary, and we can’t wait to share them with you!

Friends Together, Friends Forever!

Chris & Ronnie
