Q: What about my books caught your interest and made you want to narrate them?

A: Zoe and her grandmother’s rural roots there were an easy “in” for me. I’m originally a country girl myself, and have spent a whole lot of my adult life in “The South,” so they felt immediately familiar to me. I’m also a fan of fun, supernatural magic, and these books have that in droves!

Q: Who’s your favorite character from Broomsticks and Burials to act as? What is it about them that you love?

A: I think Luna is a load of fun to give voice to. How often do you get to hear a cat talk? And a snarky cat, at that!  She always has opinions and certainly isn’t shy about sharing them.

Q: What was your favorite chapter to record? What about it makes it your favorite?

A: In an effort not to spoil anything, I shall say Chapter 2 – because that’s when we’re introduced to several new characters that definitely let the reader or listener know that things surrounding Zoe definitely aren’t what you’d call “normal.”

Q: Part of the reason my readers love my books is their quirky humor. Was there a particular line or lines that made you laugh?

A: Oh, there were several! Beau’s goofy earnestness always made me smile, but I recall the bartender vampire mentioning that their craft blood brews were “locally sourced.” The idea of a modern, hipster vampire definitely made me chuckle.

Q: Lastly, without spoiling anything, were you surprised by the mystery of the book? Did anything catch you off-guard while you were recording?

A: No spoilers. Oh man. That’s hard. Soooooooo… Let’s just say that there might have been a death in the middle that I didn’t see coming.
