Excited to share that the PRAIRIE WINDS Trilogy is now available on audio! Written by Stephanie Grace Whitson and published by the wonderful team at Tantor Media, this historical romance series was an absolute joy and honor to narrate. Whitson is an exceptional writer who creates a world full of heart, grit and soul along with a wide array of rich, complex characters that I had the immense pleasure of bringing to life. I especially treasured learning about the language, customs and beautiful ways of the Lakota Sioux.
Walks the Fire (Book 1), Soaring Eagle (Book 2) and Red Bird (Book 3) are now available on Audible and Amazon.com.
A frozen body appears on an ice road, a unsolved murder beckons from the past, and a friend mysteriously disappears as darkness swirls around the town of Inuvik, Canada. The Stranger on the Ice by Bernadette Calonego (translated by Gerald Chapple) is a riveting tale of mystery and romance that was absolutely thrilling to record. Many thanks to Brilliance Audio for the opportunity to narrate this exciting book, and to a very generous language teacher named Anna (a resident of Inuvik), who gave her time to help me with the many Inuvialuit words in the book.
The Stranger on the Ice releases today in Audio and Print.
Now available on Audible and at Amazon.com.
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.
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.

“Harriet Beecher Stowe was an abolitionist, an author, and a playwright. Slavery was a major industry in the American South, and Stowe worked with the Underground Railroad to help escaped slaves head north toward. The publication of her book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a scathing antislavery novel, fanned the flames that started the Civil War.” ©2015 Dana Meachen Rau (P)2016 Listening Library
