An Ice Road, a Body and an Unsolved Murder: THE STRANGER ON THE ICE Releases Today!

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.

A ‘Contemplative Immediacy’ in House of Dreams – Review from AudioFile Magazine!

House of DreamsSo pleased to see this nice review in AudioFile Magazine for House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery. I enjoyed working on this deeply moving book more than I can express. My thanks to Candlewick on Brilliance Audio for the opportunity!

HOUSE OF DREAMS: The Life of L.M. Montgomery

by Liz Rosenberg | Read by Susan Hanfield

Children Ages 10+ • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This audiobook introduces listeners to Maud Montgomery, a much more complicated woman than the L.M. Montgomery they know as the author of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Maud was plagued all her life by depression, unsupportive relations, and legal difficulties, finding relief in education and her writing. She is one of Canada’s most successful and celebrated writers. Susan Hanfield’s narration varies from an almost musical quality to a faster, sharper reading when discussing Maud’s husband’s mental illness. For Maud’s first-person journal entries, she uses a soft, contemplative voice that brings an immediacy to the account. This is a title that fans of L.M. Montgomery will enjoy, as it will give then insight into this prolific and beloved author and her writing. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]

House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery is now available on Audible.com and at Amazon.

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.

Beside Me Always – Now Available On Audio!

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
