Song of Fire, Strength of Love! I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the audiobook and print release today of DIVIDED FIRE written by Jennifer San Filippo. I had so much fun co-narrating this exciting new YA Fantasy, alongside the awesome Brittany Pressley and published by the wonderful team at HMH Audio.
In this rich fantasy world, magic expresses itself through song. One of the many things I love about this book is the use of sign language. In Divided Fire, the gift of song appears in a person at a young age, and if they are deemed a singer, they are no longer able to use their voice to speak, and instead must sign in order to communicate. With this gift, their voice is used through song to control the world around them with magical ability over one of the elements, either – fire, water, air or earth.
In Divided Fire, I play Miren, who is separated unexpectedly from her younger sister Kesia when pirates invade their small fishing town. Because Kesia is one of a few remaining Fire Singers left, she is taken against her will. Miren, who doesn’t have the gift of song, but has a sharp mind and unrelenting spirit, vows to find Kesia and bring her home. Throughout Divided Fire, these two sisters journey through a war-torn world, across sea and land, amidst unexpected friends & enemies alike, and learn just how strong their bond of sisterly love truly is, as they fight against all odds to find their way back to each other.
Divided Fire is now available on Audible and at Amazon.com.
Landing today is a really cool Sci-fi story that I had so much fun narrating. Melting Like Metal is written by the talented Ada Hoffman, and sweeps us into the world where her novel, The Outside, takes place.
In Melting Like Metal, however, we are now in the POV of cyborg, Enga. As an angel of the God called Nemesis, Enga is no longer human. That’s not to say, she still doesn’t have her own share of struggles. She most definitely does. One of which, is she is not able to speak. For me as an narrator, this was an exciting challenge to play around with. Enga’s only way of communicating now, is by sending text messages from her heavily modified, technological brain.
This story takes off at warp speed and was truly awesome to work on. If you’d like to check out the podcast, just head on over to Lightspeed Magazine. This podcast was produced by the amazing team at Skyboat Media, and was edited by John Joseph Adams and hosted by Jim Freud.

This has to be one of my most favorite experiences as an audiobook narrator, to have had the opportunity to narrate a book series. Ru Emerson (Xena: Warrior Princess) wrote a wonderfully action-packed 6 book series called Night-Threads. I was given the incredible honor of playing the central role, Jennifer, who is not only smart, sassy and courageous, but also has a wry sense of humor. She gets involved in time travel, swordplay and of course, romance. I had an absolute blast working on all 6 books starting with The Calling of the Three. My heartfelt thanks to Skyboat Media for this awesome opportunity. It was an amazingly fun journey I won’t soon forget!
Book 1: The Calling of the Three
Book 2: The Two in Hiding
Book 3: One Land, One Duke
Book 4: The Craft of Light
