English teacher by day, after narrating before live audiences for over 20 years Dan took his storytelling to the booth. His voice has been described as rich, soothing, commanding, and sultry. He narrates science-fiction, horror, thrillers, and romance.
I search for two years to find the right narrator for this story. Frustrated, I’d almost given up. Last fall at a book con, Amy stopped by my table and introduced herself. I spoke with her for a few minutes and afterwards looked up her work. I loved what I heard and contacted her immediately to talk about starting the narration. After the gave her the manuscript and character list, she sent me a six minute clip. I was hooked! I wanted more! I loved listening to my words come to live. I also thrive on learning new things so while daunting, I feel so empowered by all I’m learning about the audiobook industry.
Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
In the future I think I will be more conscious of names and pronunciations. I will be more clear on how a name is pronounced to ensure ease of transition between ebook or paper copies and the audio versions.
How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
My narrator read the manuscript and gave me a list of questions. I also provided her with a character bio sheet with a bit of history as to age, ethnicity, gender, etc. of my characters.
How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
Interacting with readers and authors keep me excited and motivated. I love chatting about books, characters, plot, and hearing feedback and future ideas for my work.
Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
I love that I can listen to an audiobook almost anywhere. Listening to books and podcasts helps me get through mundane chores like laundry and cleaning, dishes and cooking.
What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
I don’t feel like audiobooks are cheating at all. I love the technology because I can listen in the car, on a run, or while doing chores.
In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
I love both stand alones and series. I try to wrap up each of my series books so it can act as a stand alone as well as add a little bit of a OMG, what’s next! If I fall in love with characters and a storyline it’s hard to let them go. I’m always sad when I finish writing a book because I miss my characters.

- What’s next for you?
- My narrator is starting the second book of the Kingdom Journals series and that audiobook will release this summer. I have a short story follow up to the Kingdom of Embers journals that will release later this year (fingers crossed). I’m also working on release materials of the second in a dystopian series for this spring. I haven’t decided whether to pursue writing another romance or another full-length extension of the Kingdom Journals yet. Both are swirling around in my head so we’ll see which one rises to the top.
