Okay, let's see. I love books. I love audiobooks. I've been an editor for a long time, and when Audible asked me if I'd like to reach out to my favorite authors and stories, to see if they wanted to do an audiobook...
I. just. flipped.
Yes, I would love to start my own audio-lovers empire, with a cherry on top! Recording my favorite books with my favorite audiobook actors has been a dream come true.
I was a little wary at first, pressing the Audible veterans: "Really? You really want me to bring in stuff I'm crazy about, all my eccentric and volatile interests? My rolodex is going to blow your mind!"
It could be sex one day, hardcore politics or crime the next— is there a difference? And then on the third day... birding.
"I have simple tastes: I like the best," said Mr. Wilde. There are so many stories out there, that may not be New-York-Times-bestsellers— but they've changed my life. I want to listen to all of them.
Over the next few months, I'll introduce you to my muses and inspirations from my book bag. I'm discovering new ones all the time. I hope they're some of yours. Write me whenever you want and tell me what you'd like to listen to next!
