Currently narrating a novel set in 1941 Ohio, presenting a talk at a conference, and looking forward to my new membership!
Cops and Writers: Crime Scenes and Investigations gives you invaluable insight into how law enforcement officers investigate and solve crimes. Sgt. O’Donnell takes you down the path, from the start of an investigation to clearing the crime.
I was very grateful (especially with everything going on) to look back and see I narrated 10 books last year. This nearly doubled my entire portfolio and was by far and away the most books I have recorded (so far) in one year.
A former president is assassinated. Rocky is disowned by members of his family. Uncommon heroism is sullied by the most powerful man in the world.
Whether you’re just starting out or you need one more push to get you over the top, two things are for certain – a kick-ass writer never quits, and Chuck Wendig won’t let you down in this high-octane guide to becoming the writer you were born to be.
My grandfather self-published this novel in 1980, based on his own experiences in 1961 in Alaska. He passed away 25 years ago and I’ve been thrilled to bring his book into the 21st century for the 40th anniversary re-issue!
We took a road trip up California 395 to South Lake Tahoe, where hiking, sledding, puzzles, and crackling fires ensued. We even saw a bear close by on a trail! Thanksgiving was, like for most of us, at home and quiet, but we made a full feast with chicken and all the fixins!
Another busy month! Lots of narrating (juggling four different projects), learned quite a bit at Johnny Heller’s virtual workshop!, quick weekend road trip to see family (outside and from a distance), and phone banking weekly to battleground states ahead of the November election! Talked to lots of great people in spots like TX, CO, OH, FL, and NV!
This past month has been mostly filled with narrating, which is great! I recently joked with another narrator that not only do you learn the craft, you then have to learn how to *do* the work every day. Time management and endurance are key!
And here we are in September already! In addition to everything else, I’ve continued to work with Shannon Parks on fiction narration, and I also produced an online Shakespeare workshop with veteran and rookie actors! No moss growing over here.
