This week’s Behind the Mic shares insights from narrator Brittany Pressley. She pulls open the recording studio door for us and shares her thoughts regarding the small town Texas characters she voiced. And I think the author Carolyn Brown has something equally insightful to share. As she says on her website, “I know the voices are not real but they have such great ideas.” And that pretty much sums up the entire audiobook industry for you. A novel may start out in the realm of fiction—not real, as Brown says—but add one great narrator and stir, and the voices become real, they are still talking to you, and you can’t bear to stop listening. Let’s hear what narrator Brittany Pressley has to say about Carolyn Brown’s THE STRAWBERRY HEARTS DINER.
“The strongest relationships in the books are really the friendships amongst the women. She writes really strong, witty, independent, feisty, great female characters from a wide range of ages, and I love that.”—Narrator Brittany Pressley
