Many Chaptersâ€¦Many Voices
Many chapters of the Will Wilder series were birthed in the corner of a coffee shop. The corner is the best place to work, since it can get loud at times. Once I travel to Perilous Falls, pounding away at the keyboard, I often hear the characterâ€™s voices in my imagination. Having been trained as an actor, I find myself involuntarily mouthing dialogue in the voice of the characters as I write.Â I literally play all the parts by the time I get to editing — doing my full â€śmultiple personalityâ€ť routine at the end of the day.
Fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will eat up this young adult thriller. The first title in the translation of Salla Simukkaâ€™s Snow White Trilogy, As Red as Blood is a chilling tale that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.
After more than twenty years, Tad Williams is returning to the world of Osten Ard, which he created in the bestselling Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy. The Last King of Osten Ard trilogy is on the way in June, beginning with The Witchwood Crown. The series continues the story of Simon Snowlock, thirty years after he was crowned king following the events of MSaT. To bridge this considerable time gap, Williams has written The Heart of What Was Lost to set the stage for whatâ€™s to come in The Witchwood Crown. While MSaT was a coming-of-age epic, The Heart of What Was Lost is a relatively intimate war story that depicts two worn-down armies fighting a brutal campaign where one side faces complete extinction. Taking place directly after the events of To Green Angel Tower, the benevolent Human/Sithi alliance has saved the world and scattered the armies of their enemies, the Norns. The novella follows Duke Isgrimnur as he leads an army of Northern Rimmersmen to pursue the last of the Norns in an invasion of their harsh, frozen homeland, culminating in a brutal siege of their capital city, Nakkiga.

When Listening Library contacted me about turning my YA thriller, THIEVING WEASELS, into an audiobook I thought it would be harmless. Fun even.
