9 little liars thought they’d escape…find out if they did… IN THE DARK – now on Audio!

A remote bay in the interior of British Columbia, Canada. A secluded mountain lodge.  Nine people brought together again…each with a deadly secret… each with something to hide. Only one will make it out …or will they?

IN THE DARK written by the incredibly talented Loreth Anne White, released this week on Audio! Published by the wonderful team at Brilliance Publishing, I had so much fun narrating this riveting, closed circle/locked room mystery!

Based on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, we begin with 9 people who all share a common secret from the past, a moment that has haunted each of them in their own way for the past fourteen years. White, immediately ups the ante as one guest meets their fate early on, while the remaining eight are transported by a de Havilland Beaver MK1 aircraft to an isolated part of Kluhane Bay in northern BC. The guests are to stay at … what they believe is an all-expenses-paid luxury getaway at the Forest Shadow Wilderness Resort & Spa.

Once the guests arrive at the lodge, the mood suddenly shifts and White’s vivid words transport us into a world where nothing is as it seems. We are immediately immersed into a dark, moody, haunting atmosphere where upon entering the lodge, a riddle is uncovered… with eight figurines.  The guests begin to sense that something… isn’t quite right …

What was especially exciting about narrating In The Dark, aside from the fact that I am originally from British Columbia, is that the author shifts time periods throughout the book, traversing between events taking place among the guests at the lodge over a ten day period and the present day search and rescue team trying desperately to find them. White also employs a switching of perspectives, so we are able to see into the slow unraveling of each of the guests’ minds, as the mask of each character is pealed back to reveal the dark and ugly secrets hidden underneath. As each guest begins to spiral out of control, we see how their hand also played a part in this sinister game of revenge.

“For in the end there can only be one. But maybe . . . there shall be none” 

Nine little liars thought they’d escape…find out if they did…

In The Dark is now available on Audible and at Amazon.com.

 

ECOPIETY – Releases today on Audio!

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.

Hear Priscilla’s Story – Now on Audio!

Priscilla_

What would it be like to step into the sandals of the biblical character, Priscilla, wife of Aquila? I got to do just that when I had the opportunity to record Priscilla: The Life of an Early Christian written by Biblical scholar Ben Witherington III and published by the awesome team at Tantor Audio!

I think what was especially fun for me as the reader, was that Witherington has written Priscilla as a historical novella! So while it was so interesting to learn about Priscilla’s life, we get to do so by seeing through Priscilla’s eyes as she looks back on her life, now as a woman in her 80s.  At the insistence of Priscilla’s adopted daughter, Julia, and with the pressing urgency to have others learn of her story, Priscilla begins to recount the details of her extraordinary life, as Julia takes down every word!

This imaginative work of historical fiction was such a joy to work on! I’m so happy to celebrate the release of Priscilla: The Life of an Early Christian into the world, across all platforms – in both Audio and Print!

To hear Priscilla’s story please visit Audible or Amazon.com.
