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 recordPriscilla: The Life of an Early Christianwritten 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 writtenPriscillaas 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 Christianinto the world, across all platforms – in both Audio and Print!
Be the Light that You Are was not only a joy to narrate, but the many nuggets of wisdom contained within this audiobook stayed with me long after I finished working on it! Engle gently encourages us to utilize our higher mind in all areas of our life, thereby teaching us how we can foster self-love, remove self-doubt that may be holding us back and begin to live our lives as we were meant to.
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 truly treasured every moment of narrating this beautiful, heartwarming story.

FromJessica, to Pillsbury Crossing to The Cabin. It’s been an incredible journey that I won’t soon forget.
