I love books and words.
I used to devour literature voraciously, but kids changed that. Suddenly, I had other priorities.
I also love to listen. It's one of the things I do best :-)
Audiobooks put it all together for me. I have access to great books with the added benefit of being able to absorb language through my ears. Often, that benefit is enhanced even further by a great narrator who infuses the right element of drama or adds clarity through interpretation. Some authors can even read their own audiobooks, and then you get the additional layer of intent coming through their subtle emphasis or their particular accent.
It's been my great pleasure to create the right mood for a great many audiobooks with music. Here are some of the audiobooks that I've worked on.
