With the passing of the fall solstice, it is time for my second newsletter from my new life in my new home – already. Sheesh! How did that happen? (Please feel free to unsubscribe below if you do not wish to receive further updates.)
So much for kicking that COVID beast to the curb. Stupid Delta variant. Here’s hoping news is better on that front by the time of the next solstice.
This quarter brought what will likely be the highlight of my year in the audiobook world. Superstar author Judy Blume knows who I am! Not only does she know who I am, she asked Penguin Random House to see if I was available to narrate the role of the family matriarch in the multi-cast re-release of one of her best loved novels, Summer Sisters (soon coming to Netflix as a limited series). That got my fan girl self pretty excited and I obviously said yes! The title dropped on September 14th and I was honored to be included among the top-notch narrators making up the cast.* Ms. Blume narrates an introductory note as well.
* Sophie Amoss, Mark Deakins, Xe Sands, Cassandra Campbell, Rebecca Lowman, Ari Fliakos, George Newbern, MacLeod Andrews, Michael Crouch, Saskia Maarleveld, Everette Plen and Brittany Pressley.
Transitioning to life as a full-time creative means that theatre is back on the table and I booked my first live theatre audition in several years a few weeks ago. Imagine my delight at getting a callback! Dani and I took the opportunity to enjoy a lovely fall afternoon in the park while I read the play in preparation for my audition. Definitely my favorite kind of office!

Have a great fall. I have some room in my schedule over the next few months so please reach out if I can be of assistance.
