A quick look at recent adventures…
FIND HER by Chris Patchell for Fireside Audio. A simple heist at a hardware store uncovers a brutal crime spree leaving a police officer dead, several innocents murdered, and the small Oregon town of Sweet Home shaken to its core. Working alongside Cass Medcalf for this dual narration!
ALSO WORKING ON: a dramatized memoir for Deyan Audio – will release more info when it’s published!
- THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN by Tim Grove for Blackstone Audio – a dramatic, gripping history of the Siege of Yorktown, the last major battle of the American Revolution, told through vastly different perspectives.
- STAR-SPANGLED by Tim Grove for Blackstone Audio – the little-known and inspiring story behind the national anthem and the stars and stripes.
- PEOPLE OF BLOOMINGTON by Budi Darma (translated by Tiffany Tsao) for Penguin Random House – this is my first multicast project and I’m alongside some amazing narrators!
- An eerie, alienating, yet comic and profoundly sympathetic short-story collection about Americans in America by one of Indonesia’s most prominent writers, now in an English translation for its 40th anniversary, with a foreword by Intan Paramaditha.
Publishing University for IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association) – had a great time doing a virtual presentation on using video and audio in book marketing and talking to lots of publishers about audiobooks

- The West Tech Terrorist by Peter Jedick – Victor Blazek, the sports editor of the West Tech school newspaper, and his girlfriend, Doris, try to foil a sinister plot by Nazi sympathizers inside the school.
And outside of the booth…
I’ve been playing more tennis lately (taking some lessons and practicing with a friend) and actually seeing some LIVE and IN PERSON theatre: Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming and An Iliad, co-written by Denis Hare and Lisa Peterson.
I don’t really have any photos of that stuff, so here’s my dog Paz in the middle of a bush. He is fully off the ground and at the top of it. He loves looking for tennis balls. And it’s only the hunt. About 5 minutes later, he’s lost interest. God, he’s ridiculous.
I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to and any other comments you have – leave a note below!
More ahead! Be well and keep in touch!
