The War Came to Us: Life and Death in Ukraine, by Christopher Miller

The War Came to Us - Cover

A breathtaking exploration of Ukraine’s past, present, and future, and a heartbreaking account of the war against Russia, written by the leading journalist of the conflict.

When Russian President Vladimir Putin launched his unprovoked, full-scale invasion of Ukraine just before dawn on 24 February 2022, it marked his latest and most overt attempt to brutally conquer the country, and reshaped the world order. Christopher Miller, the Ukraine correspondent for the Financial Times and the foremost journalist covering the country, was there on the ground when the first Russian missiles struck and troops stormed over the border. But the seeds of Russia’s war against Ukraine and the West were sown more than a decade earlier.

This is the definitive, inside story of its long fight for freedom. Told through Miller’s personal experiences, vivid front-line dispatches and illuminating interviews with unforgettable characters, The War Came To Us takes readers on a riveting journey through the key locales and pivotal events of Ukraine’s modern history. From the coal-dusted, sunflower-covered steppe of the Donbas in the far east to the heart of the Euromaidan revolution camp in Kyiv; from the Black Sea shores of Crimea, where Russian troops stealthily annexed Ukraine’s peninsula, to the bloody battlefields where Cossacks roamed before the Kremlin’s warlords ruled with iron fists; and through the horror and destruction wrought by Russian forces in Bucha, Bakhmut, Mariupol, and beyond.

With candor, wit and sensitivity, Miller captures Ukraine in all its glory: vast, defiant, resilient, and full of wonder. A breathtaking narrative that is at times both poignant and inspiring, The War Came To Us is the story of an American who fell in love with a foreign place and its people – and witnessed them do extraordinary things to escape the long shadow of their former imperial ruler and preserve their independence.

Spotify Audiobook Promos: Into the Light, by Mark Oshiro


When Spotify asked me to help them promote one of their latest audiobook releases, Into the Light, by brilliant YA Fiction author Mark Oshiro, I really couldn’t have been happier – for a number of reasons.

I’ve developed a good working relationship with the folks at Spotify and their recently-formed audio production arm, OrangeSky Audio. 

This has grown out of my also-great relationship with the also-great and awesome folks at Findaway Voices and Findaway Marketplace, recently acquired by Spotify.

I’m a big believer in the old maxim that all business is based on relationships and I’m grateful for the opportunity to form such good working relationships with this diverse group of truly lovely, talented people. So when they contacted me to ask if I’d like to help promote their work – for all the right reasons – I didn’t need think twice!

Placebo Effect, by Derek Dean


When you love someone, when you truly love them, you won’t let anything hurt them…even if it’s you.

After his life falls apart, Drew rebuilds himself by selling placebo medication to the people whose lives are in more of a shambles than his own. The broken will do anything to help themselves and step on anyone to get ahead.

When he falls for one of his clients, his need to protect her outweighs his need to survive. When her past and his present collide he can either fall in love, or ruin her life. 

Like a rip-roaring mash-up of ‘Thelma and Louise’ and ‘Breaking Bad’, Placebo Effect, in essence, was written to prove that the human heart still exists.

Free Market: The History of an Idea


From a MacArthur “Genius,” an intellectual history of the free market, from ancient Rome to the twenty-first century .

After two government bailouts of the US economy in less than twenty years, free market ideology is due for serious reappraisal. In Free Market, Jacob Soll details how we got to this current crisis, and how we can find our way out by looking to earlier iterations of free market thought.

Contrary to popular narratives, early market theorists believed that states had an important role in building and maintaining free markets. But in the eighteenth century, thinkers insisted on free markets without state intervention, leading to a tradition of ideological brittleness. That tradition only calcified in the centuries that followed.

Tracing the intellectual evolution of the free market from Cicero to Milton Friedman, Soll argues that we need to go back to the origins of free market ideology in order to truly understand it—and to develop new economic concepts to face today’s challenges.

The Flying Sabuki – A Father-Son Nature Adventure


Do You Know What a Flying Sabuki is?

During a week’s vacation together in the Adirondack Mountains, writer E.S. Curry discovers, through nature and his son Åsmund’s imagination, what this phenomenon is and so much more. This uplifting testament to the joys of fatherhood is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about the connection and bonding rituals that cement the father-son relationship—electronics and distraction free.

E.S. Curry and his son Åsmund teach us about working together for mutual success, the Danish concept of Hygge, driving character and values through storytelling, and how being amongst nature creates an environment for connectedness. While there are scores of books for expecting fathers, The Flying Sabuki opens an intimate window into the formative Kindergarten years of a father and son relationship with a positive foundation.

The Flying Sabuki is a heartwarming tale that’s the perfect holiday or Father’s Day gift and a great book for parents looking for real-world insights on bonding with their child.

Put Me In, Coach!


Coaching for Voice Actors

Sean Pratt @SPPresents, Tamsin Collison @lovearhyme, Nancy Wolfson @NancyWolfson, J. Michael Collins @JMCdemos – just a few of the outstanding voice acting coaches it’s been my pleasure to study with and be inspired by.

Unless you’re in ‘the voice acting business’ you probably don’t know who these folks are, but, they’re all the very best at what they do – and mere mortals like me wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them.

So, as we near the end of another year, I’d like to shout-out my eternal thanks to these folks and the many, many others who’ve helped to train and inspire me.

Many Thanks – and Happy Holidays to You All !

The Speed of Light, by Elizabeth Rosner

The Speed of Light - Cover

Every family has a story. Every story, eventually, must be told.

For most of their lives, Julian Perel and his sister, Paula, lived in a house cast in silence, witnesses to a father struggling with a devastating secret too painful to share. Though their father took his demons to the grave, his past refuses to rest.

Yet both their lives begin to change on a Wednesday, miercoles, the day that sounds like miracles. Before embarking on a European opera tour, Paula asks her housekeeper, Sola, to stay at her place–and to look after Julian in the apartment above. Yet Sola, too, has a story. 

The Speed of Light is a powerful story of three unforgettable souls who overcome the tragedies of the past to reconnect with one another and the world around them. In an extraordinary accomplishment, Elizabeth Rosner has created a novel of love and redemption that proves the pain of the untold story is far greater than even the most difficult truth.

Featuring the voices of Elizabeth Rosner as Paula, Ana Clements as Sola and myself, Craig Van Ness, as Julian, this highly-acclaimed, multiple award-winning novel is now coming to audio for the first time.
