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 - Cover

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.

One Step Beyond …


“Another traumatic blow to your head may cause hallucinations ranging from brilliancy to absurdity” …

said the brain surgeon at the Landstuhl Medical Center in Germany, where Staff Sergeant Travis Morgan first received medical evaluation following a mortar blast in Afghanistan. That explosion wounded Travis and killed Mojo, his German shepherd patrol dog.

Three years later, Travis received such a severe whack when Bruno Tron, a strong, young Al Capone imitator, hoped to become rich by shooting two security officers and robbing their armored truck at a Walmart Super Center near Neosho, Missouri.

The robber, a self-proclaimed squatter, intended to use the Morgan family wilderness on the Ozark Plateau to receive aerial drug drops flown from Mexico. Thus Travis, his family and Honcho, their family dog, must be eliminated.

After whacking Travis over his skull with a sack of stolen quarters at Walmart, Bruno tossed him into a sinkhole on the Morgan family wilderness and used the $400,000 for his start into crime.

Travis, hallucinating back and forth through time and space, helped the founding fathers within the colonial era; George Washington winning the American Revolutionary War, Daniel Boone cutting through Cumberland Gap into Kentucky, Lewis and Clark finding the Pacific Ocean, and Wells-Fargo starting stagecoach routes to California.

His Grandma’s skeleton, sitting with her back to the wall of the sinkhole, enabled Travis’s two-way communications by way of his hallucinations. Ironically Bruno Tron met a similar, unusual, fate.

However, after his rescue, Travis finally realized his dreams – lecturing about colonial history at the University of Virginia, his alma mater, buying a house, and marrying the beautiful brunette, Abby Principe, his childhood sweetheart.

BEYOND CUMBERLAND GAP is a trippy, time-traveling tale of American History, Drug Smuggling, Deer Hunting and True Love.

Incredible Us – Bliss Series Book 3


A homeless young woman. A respected, mature dominant. And too many years between them.

Dave Adams has been alone ever since his wife left him for her girlfriend years before. Of course, he’s not alone.

Managing Bliss, an elegant members-only BDSM club, is his life, and with submissives galore, master Dave has whatever he wants, whenever he wants it.

He’s seen his son and his son’s best friend both find the loves of their lives, but Dave knows his time’s up.


But that was before he opened the back door to take out the night’s garbage and found a young homeless woman trapped between him and the dumpster. Compassionate to a fault, Dave invites here in and tries to reach out to her, only to discover that a hideousness has transpired and left her more than just damaged. As he, Clint, and Steffen, with the help of Trish and Sheila, manage to draw out Olivia’s demons and help her begin to confront them, something unexpected happens – Dave finds himself responding to Olivia’s softness and vulnerability, and her to his dominance and loving guidance. 

And just when it seems their May-December romance might stand a chance, a plan gone wrong convinces Dave that the last place Olivia needs to be is in his arms. He finds a way to send her on to bigger and better things, but when her whereabouts become unknown, Dave discovers that maybe dates on a calendar don’t mean that much at all. Problem is, unless he can find her, it won’t matter. 

Return to Bliss and the characters you’ve grown to love in this final instalment in the Me, You, and Us series, and find out what it takes to break into that scared, worn out heart in Dave Adams’ chest.

The Patriot, Book two in Nick Thacker’s Jake Parker Series, is here!

“I can help you find the man who killed your wife.”

It’s the last thing Jake Parker expects to hear from an old friend from his military days at West Point, Lt Colonel Douglas McDonnell.

Officially, Jake’s wife Mel was an unlucky bystander during a sudden terrorist attack, but Jake has always felt there was a missing piece of the puzzle.

When McDonnell tells him that his team has been tracking the group responsible, it’s Jake’s opportunity to finally lay Mel’s ghost to rest.

McDonnell believes that the terrorist cell is linked to one of the big pharma companies operating out of Puerto Rico, and he needs Jake’s skills on his team for one specific task: find the link and take them down. But as soon as Jake arrives, the plan begins to crumble. Focused on targeting the group members one at a time, the team on the ground won’t listen to Jake’s insistence that they look at the bigger picture.

When Jake meets bio-chemist Veronique, they hit it off. But when she confesses her fears that her employer is manufacturing a drug for the US market with deadly side effects, Jake realises that the terrorists have raised the stakes, and more innocent lives are at risk if he doesn’t act fast. Then Veronique is kidnapped. Unable to trust anyone around him, Jake is pushed as never before to find Vero while taking down the evil organisation before they strike at the US population…

A non-stop action thriller from a USA Today bestselling author. An unputdownable read for fans of David Baldacci, I Am Pilgrim and Jack Ryan.

The Way English is Supposed to Sound…apparently

Flags of The World

Apparently, no one  *thinks* they have an accent, but my dialogue coach friends assure me, everyone does!

My accent, a product of classical vocal training during my childhood in suburban New Jersey and an adult life spent living and working all over The World, is best described as Mid-Atlantic, Trans-Atlantic, International or – my personal favourite –  ‘American but not too American’.

Whatever you hear when you hear me, it’s always given me great pleasure to be invited to provide recordings for English Language Training (ELT). 

I now provide ELT Study Materials for the state education systems in several European countries. The latest is a primary school guide for one of my absolute favourites, Italy – Ciao Bambini !!

This has led me to conclude that, although some may think that I  *have an accent*,  in several European countries, at least,  I am – The Way English is Supposed to Sound … apparently!


Forbidden Fairy Tales


Wait … Snow White and the WHAT?!!

This ain’t Disney, folks, better send the kids to bed. Forbidden: Snow White and The Seven Deadly Sins manages to mash-up Classic Fairy Tales, Voodoo Queens, Zombies, Shape Shifters, and The Seven Deadly Sins, who just happen to run a BDSM Club – by the way, I voice ‘Salem’, aka Sloth, the brains of the outfit.

With a crazy-mad story line, all-star cast of narrators and seriously steamy reverse-harem action with ‘Snow and The Sins’  there’s something for everyone!


She’s used to demons and voodoo, what she was not expecting was for life to become a fairy tale, complete with her own wicked Stepmother.

Her awful stepmother is the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans.  She’s always hated her stepdaughter for being a succubus.  It just got a hundred times worse, after her father died mysteriously.

Snow inherits the family company, but, can’t remove her evil stepmother because she’s made the entire board her zombies. After another board meeting goes against her, Snow decides to let off a little steam with an intern from accounting…how was she supposed to know he was the Evil Stepmother’s pet?  Now, the Evil Stepmother is out for blood.

Injured and on the run, ‘Snow’ finds sanctuary at a local BDSM Club, run by ‘you know who’ and plots her revenge.  An epic battle between good and evil is brewing, but, who will come out on top?

Forbidden is a dark, adult re-telling of Snow White. It contains scenes of consensual BDSM and one evil stepmother.  You have been warned…
