Thank you to everyone who listened to one (or several!) of my performances in 2021, and to all the authors, producers, editors, proofers, and other terrific members of the narration community with whom I have worked and/or chatted in the last year. Was 2021 really only 12 months?!? Interesting.
We are all programmed to measure our accomplishments via numbers, so to check that box: I narrated 36 books in 2021, with a total of just over 240 finished hours. This far exceeded my goal for the year, which is gratifying. But sometimes it feels like I completed far fewer hours, and sometimes it feels like I did twice that many. And this is one of the reasons for my preference for measuring an experience qualitatively and not quantitatively…so let’s move on to *what* I got up to, instead of the bloody stats!
In the realm of horror, I continued to work with the great Lee Mountford all year on his Haunted series, which I will conclude with book six in January. With this series, Lee has explored new territory in his mythic universe and created some of the best horror I’ve read by any author. Each book works well as a standalone, as well as carrying on the story arc of the series, which is no easy task. He has a very cinematic style, and I would not be surprised to see Lee’s work make its way to the screen in coming years.
