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 Alwayswas 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.
The Next 25 Years begins with Star Trek: The Next Generation and beams through to present day. I had so much fun portraying a myriad of incredibly talented women in this audible history of Star Trek! An added highlight, was the opportunity to portray two of my favorite women in space – Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher)from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway) from Star Trek: Voyager. Such an honor to be a part of this exciting (audible) history, as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek.
