I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the audiobook release of YEARS by LaVyrle Spencer, published by Tantor Audio. I absolutely love Spencer’s writing and her deep, rich characters moved me from laughter to tears on more than one occasion.
Set in 1918, amidst the beautiful and sometimes harrowing landscape of North Dakota, Spencer offers us an evocative glimpse into this time period and the people that called Alamo, North Dakota their home.
YEARS centers on a young feisty schoolteacher who won’t give up on her dream to educate, no matter the hardships she comes against, and the man she unwittingly falls in love with. A man who has long given up on love and instead pours his heart into the land he works, day in and day out. A push and pull begins to happen between these two spirited characters, as they fight against a love that will not be quieted …
YEARS is now available on Audible and at Amazon.com
Had the best time last week filming at Intel Studios in their awesome volumetric dome. Equipped with 100+ cameras, Intel’s dome is the largest in the world and has the capability of capturing scenes in 360 degrees. This project is truly a special one and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!
I will share more as soon as I can… #staytuned #IntelStudios
Tools for Teaching, Second Edition released on Audio this past week! I so enjoyed narrating this informative and comprehensive work, written by Barbara Gross Davis and published by the awesome team at Tantor Media.
I have always loved being in a classroom setting, and so many of my favorite courses over the years, truly had to do with how the instructor communicated with his/her students as they got the information across to us in an interesting and accessible way. With our current fast-paced society and vastly emerging technology now affecting our educational environments, it is more important than ever to incorporate new methods and tools in a way that quickly connects and engages students with the material at hand.
In Davis’ long awaited update to her best selling book, Tools for Teaching, 2nd Edition provides a detailed road map to successfully integrate your coursework in a way that will not only engage students, but also encourage them to participate in the classroom experience.
Davis’ methods are designed to improve the teaching methods from beginning through senior faculty members.
Tools for Teaching, 2nd edition is now available on audio at Audible or at Amazon.com.
Releasing today on Audio! Ecopiety: Green Media and the Dilemma of Environmental Virtue written by Sarah McFarland Taylor and published by the wonderful team at Tantor Audio!
“It’s 3:23 in the morning and I’m awake…” Ecopiety begins with a prophetic excerpt from spoken-word poet and filmmaker Drew Dellinger’s poem Hieroglyphic Stairway. In the poem, he describes waking up in the middle of the night haunted by his great grandchildren’s questions…. They want to know of him, “Surely you did something as the seasons started failing? As the mammals, reptiles, and birds were all dying?” The children press deeper demanding, “Did you fill the streets with protest when democracy was stolen?” “Their final question hangs heavy in the air as a haunting refrain of accusation: “What did you do once you knew?”
What will we do? What can we do? Ecopiety opens our eyes to this question, propelling us to action by holding a mirror up to this very real problem that we all share – the fate of Earth and our role in its future.
By examining the intersections of environmental sensibilities, contemporary expressions of piety, while skillfully incorporating examples from American popular culture through the likes of the eco-pious Christian Grey of Fifty Shades of Grey and the socially conscious vegetarian vampires in True Blood, Taylor shows us how to move from mere environmental ideals into significant response.
Now available on Audible and Amazon.com!

Hello San Jose! Thrilled to learn that N.I. (Neo Intelligence) will be part of the official selection at the San Jose International Short Film Festival!
I had so much fun playing THE VOICE in this chilling short film directed by VFX Emmy nominated and award winning director, Sallyanne Massimini. The film stars Giorgia Whigham and David Meza and explores the idea of a new, more advanced form of Artificial Intelligence – one that could easily be assimilated into our modern day society. One that moves beyond previous barriers to achieve the ultimate prize – the full integration of human emotions… This new form of intelligence … is called N.I.
Screening schedule to be announced in early September so stay tuned!
