    Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Infamous to be better than the print version?

    It is always cool to go back and explore a charicter and get a feel for their lives prior to popping into a book/scene


    What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love his voices for the characters. With several previous Nick appearances, the reader didn't do Nick or Akeron(sp) justice. I absolutely hate when a reader makes all Southerners sound like uneducated idiots, Holter Graham did not do this and was amazing

    The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and walked into self-imposed exile. Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.

    Did William Dufris do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I find Mr. Dufris to be whinny and a very uninteresting reader. I totally wish they would use Holter Graham for all of the narrations.

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent read, one of his best in years


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What the Night Knows?

    I always enjoy looking/listening for several Koontz tale-tells that he places in his books. It is like a literary Koontz scavenger hunt. 1-golden retreiver 2-special needs person/child 3-mercury/sodium vapor lights 4-outside smelling of ozone and my favorite 5-bouganvillea. Sometimes all 5 make the book and in others only a few hit the pages.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    My life again

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    What did you like best about Port Mortuary? What did you like least?

    I like the Scarpetta novels but this particular title was lacking


    What was most disappointing about Patricia Cornwell’s story?

    It wasn't as interesting as I would expect


    What does Kate Burton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kate Burton to me is the only voice for the Scarpetta novels


    Could you see Port Mortuary being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    One never knows what mishap waits around the corner for Ms Stephanie


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I absolutely LOVE Ms King's interpretation of the characters' personalities and voices AMAZING

    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    I simply LOVE the performer. She brings every nuance of each character to life and her voices will forever be the characters for me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Dallas figured out where McQueen was living and made him bolt like a scared rabbit.

    New York To Dallas is perfect

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Would you listen to The Hunger Games again? Why?

    Yes, the book flows very nicely and there aren't any memorable lags in story.


    What other book might you compare The Hunger Games to and why?

    Eragon because the characters Eragon and Katniss are young unlikely heros that find themselves in very grown-up circumstances.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    The performance was great, however, I feel that a younger performer should have been used to channel Katniss and the whole feel of the story.
