Who wants to follow all the rules? Rebel at Work: How to Innovate and Drive Results When You Aren’t the Boss is a smart and sassy business book by Natalie Neelan, published by Tantor Audio, that I had so much fun narrating!
Neelan writes from an unconventional perspective, geared toward the employee rather than the executive. What I loved about Rebel at Work is that it’s a really fresh take that doesn’t just cover the same old ground in the same old way. Now, I’m a rebel too!
Releasing today on Audible and Amazon.com.
Excited to share the audiobook release of The Covenantal Life by Sarah Ivill published by Christian Audio. This was an incredibly fascinating book that I so enjoyed working on!
In The Covenantal Life, Sarah Ivill encourages us to delve deeper into covenant theology so that we can begin to get a firmer understanding of scripture and thus start to think more biblically as we face the various circumstances in our lives. By applying these principles, Ivill suggests that we will then begin to more readily experience how the beauty of theology and community can transform our lives.

I am excited to celebrate with Judy Unger the audiobook release of her poignant memoir Beside Me Always recorded at Studio City Sound and produced by Punch Audio. I met Judy a year prior to recording her memoir and it’s been an absolute joy getting to know her and hearing how she was able to move past the pain and tragic loss of losing her young child to a severe congenital heart defect, to eventually being able to find joy and happiness once again through her love of music.
As a narrator, this was the first time I’ve experienced recording a book with the author sitting in on the recording session and it was a deeply moving experience for myself, Judy and our incredible engineer Jeff Ryon, as we traveled through the heartfelt pages of this intimate memoir.
Judy’s hope when she began writing Beside Me Always was that her words and music would be able to comfort and uplift others who are also journeying through grief. I have no doubt that she achieved that goal. Judy’s music can be found at her website judyungermusic.com.
You can find Beside Me Always at audible.com.
