2016 Parsec Science Fiction Award Recipient for work on The Galaxy Quest Restoration Project Review from David Smith, author of In The Shadow Of The Matterhorn: As author of the non-fiction Disney book, “In the Shadow of the Matterhorn” I wanted to turn this best-selling book into an audio book. I had heard Al Kessel on his Pod Cast, “Tales from the Mouse House” and immediately felt I had heard the perfect voice to do my book in audio form. True to my instinct, Al put together several sample readings of my book and I was so impressed that I even felt goosebumps on my skin hearing his silky and versatile voice narrate the text. So diverse that Al captured the female dialogue in parts of the book and his ability to add a ‘southern drawl' to other parts, he was able to truly bring to life-and give depth and style-to my written words. For those who seek a professional narrator for virtually any style of book, one who can add the quality touches of appropriate background music and chapter intros in addition to effective narration, I highly recommend Al for your work. I will be using Al again and again. For a more personal reference, those who wish to learn more about Al may contact me at David@synergy-books.com. Review From Lauralynn Elliott, Author of Haunted Lake: Al Kessel has been awesome to work with. Not only do I love his voice, but he's a REALLY nice guy. I wasn't sure anyone could do anything with the voice of my character, John, who was injured in such a way that his voice was raspy. Al pulled it off better than I could have imagined. He brought kind of a “Clint Eastwood” style to John's voice. And Al really enjoyed portraying John. He also did the female voice well. That's hard to pull off for a guy, but I had no problem imagining a female when Al was portraying Rachel. I hope to work with him again.
