What a trip! I really enjoyed narrating “50 States” by Richard R. Becker, a collection of short stories that literally takes the listener across all fifty states in the U.S. This is the first time I’ve ever done a book of short stories, and it was one of the most challenging projects I’ve had to date! I had to take on regional accents from across the country for the different characters, preparing a whole new approach for each story. It was a tough assignment, but it was completely worth it.
Richard is a talented author who puts a reader/listener through many, many different emotional twists and turns. Some of my favorite stories in this collection include the terrifying adventure and suspense of “Bad Things,” the horror-infused dread of “Shine On You Crazy Diamonds,” and the sweet poignancy of “Forget Me Nots,” Listen to my interview with Richard, below, and download the book here on Audible!
