I was once a virgin when it came to audiobooks, too.

I've produced 30+ audiobooks on Audible, including all of my anthologies, which included hundreds of actors and every conceiveable kind of character and dialog. It's been such a treat to work them and hear these stories come to life!

You can also buy titles "a la carte" without being a subscriber.
Here's a few samples from my favorites, which were all produced by Audible's studios:
