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.

The Stranger on the Ice releases today in Audio and Print.

Celebrations from 2017 and Cheers to 2018!

Wishing you a wonderful 2018 – may this new year be filled with much joy, laughter, good health and your deepest dreams coming true!  As I look back on 2017, I am so grateful for the many memories, opportunities and experiences that this year brought. Here are a few of the highlights:

As an audiobook narrator, 2017 began with much excitement and the tremendous honor of receiving a 2017 Audie Award nomination in the Young Adult Category for The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough, published by Scholastic Audio and produced by Deyan Audio. The year continued at an exhilarating pace with the opportunity to form new relationships with publishers, such as Tantor Media, Brilliance Audio and Recorded Books, along with many wonderful new authors, where I had the joy of narrating a wide variety of fascinating titles.

 

As an actor, three films that I had the pleasure of working on were screened around the world! 96 Souls, a sci-fi feature directed by Stanley Jacobs, in which I play a sympathetic shelter processor, acquired worldwide distribution and began it’s nationwide theatrical release on May 26th beginning at the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills. Je Suis (i AM) a hard-hitting short film directed by Faith Strongheart made it’s theatrical debut this year at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival where it screened at the short film corner. Magdalene, a 1930s period piece film, directed by Rebecca Cremona, in which I play the lead and title character, screened in Malta this year at the Malta Film Expo!

 

On stage, I had the great joy of playing Regan in William Shakespeare’s King Lear directed by Tony Tanner at the T. U. Theatre. I was also thrilled to perform at UCLA this year as Phedre in Jean Racine’s Phedre directed by Dennis Gersten.

Farewell, 2017! It’s been an amazing year and one that I’m extremely thankful for.
