Excerpt from a recently finished audio book for UniversityPressAudiobooks, a 13 1/2 hour text on the first great year of the American Revolution, filled with many stories,ironies,characters and perspectives highlighting one of the greatest eras in American history

I was a longtime actor by trade and believe in narrating authentic characters with depth, power and nuance. I will not cold read your writing but will prepare each chapter as an actor and a director would approach a play or a classic. This might take a week or sometimes two weeks longer but in the end I feel that the quality of the production will be greatly highlighted and will flow with its own natural rhythms and tones. I very much enjoy working with writers and it is your interpretation of the text which I always intend to pursue.
This year I have narrated a political thriller "DeathVotesLast" for Cherry Hills Publishing and a collection of horror stories,"Road Kills" here on ACX by Isaac Thorne as well. Last year I completed 6 long novels will numerous characters in each, the most recent being "MacArthur's Luck" a sprawling tale of WWII told from multiple perspectives. I acted for 30 years on stage around the country, on Broadway and in Television. I was a leading principal actor on the infamous soap opera "Santa Barbara" and starred in the cult t.v. classic "The Renegades" with the late Patrick Swayze.
Winner of the Los Angeles Drama Circle Critics Award for outstanding performance of the year in the play "Tamara", plus many Dramalogue and L.A. Weekly awards. Please scan reviews of my productions on Audible under my name for a better idea of how listeners may respond to my work.
