    Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can't control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she's tapped into a killer - or rather, his victims. Each woman's murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

    What made the experience of listening to Tuesday's Child the most enjoyable?

    I love stories about psychics and what they experience in their "trances." It was good that the protagonist was able to connect to another psychic that understood her dilemmas and questions about her abilities.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tuesday's Child?

    When the protagonist experienced the murders of the victims, she actually bled from her own body.


    What didn’t you like about Kellie Kamryn’s performance?

    The reading was like sitting in high school and listening to one of your classmates read out loud. She sounded like a young kid and there wasn't much drama or variation in her voice. It kept losing my attention. It was almost like listening to a computer-generated reading.

    It is darkest night. You are travelling in a fast train full of people. A stranger stands up and calls for attention. He tells them he has evidence there is danger ahead. Not too far down the line the train will cross a wide ravine. Hundreds of feet below, the river rages min full torrent. Some of the track is missing and the train is doomed to plunge into the flood below with fatal consequences. Before the train reaches the river, it will make one final stop where those who wish to can get off. Then it will speed of to its final doom.

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

    I did not have the print version, however, I love audio books because I can listen to them while multitasking with other things - even driving. I enjoyed listening to it because I hunger for the Word of the Lord explained in ways that I understand. Because I believe we are living in the end times, I was drawn to the book because I follow a lot of the current events that I believe apply to the end times prophesy signs. This book pretty much falls in line with all that I've been taught regarding the subject.


    What about Patrick Heron’s performance did you like?

    I was surprised the reader had an Irish accent. I loved it. It's also better when the actual author reads the book. That way everything is said in the way he intended.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's a truth-revealing book that couples with the prophesies found in biblical doctrine. it's important that people in these times understand its message.

    Twenty-something Harper Connelly has a gift. After being struck by lighting as a child, she discovered an eerie ability to locate the deceased. In Memphis, skeptical Professor Nunley wants her to demonstrate that skill at an ancient cemetery. There, Harper stands atop a grave and says there are two bodies entombed: one centuries old, but the other, a young girl named Tabitha.

    What did you love best about Grave Surprise?

    I loved the psychic aspects of the book, coupled with the mystery surrounding the death of a little girl whose murdered body was found buried in and old grave with a body still buried beneath her. There are always non-believers and skeptics who say that the psychic must have been part of the murder, since they believe psychics are nonexistent. So naturally, while she is being investigated for her part in the murder, she and her step-brother are working together to try to find the real murderer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Surprise?

    When the man who assaulted her was murdered.


    What about Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance did you like?

    It's nice when the reader is able to add drama to the story by her reading style.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could not listen that continuously, but it was engrossing and a good read.

    The city of Ember was built as a last refuge for the human race. Two hundred years later, the great lamps that light the city are beginning to flicker. When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she's sure it holds a secret that will save the city. She and her friend Doon must decipher the message before the lights go out on Ember forever! This stunning debut novel offers refreshingly clear writing and fascinating, original characters.

    What did you like best about The City of Ember? What did you like least?

    It was a fantasy book with realism thrown in to make it more believable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It ended the way you would expect.


    What about Wendy Dillon’s performance did you like?

    She added drama to the story and she was not hard to pay attention to.


    Could you see The City of Ember being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I could see it as a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book for a Young Adults Literature class I was taking. It was quite enjoyable, but geared for a younger audience. So as long as it is read with that mindset, I would recommend it.

    Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age - and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. But years later, she learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listened to the book as a school assignment. I actually enjoyed it more than I believed I would. Maya experienced a lot of abuse and mistreatment, but came out stronger on the other side. She never wallowed in self-pity, but moved past her circumstances. It was especially enjoyable that the author performed the audio book, herself. Every line was read the way it was intended.


    Have you listened to any of Maya Angelou’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never experienced Maya Angelou prior to this, and I must say, I enjoyed hearing about her life's journey.

    What made the experience of listening to Ghost Night the most enjoyable?

    Heather Graham is a talented writer. She creates believable characters and eerie situations.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was a little far-fetched that both of the protagonists could see ghosts and didn't know it about each other.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Angela Dawe's performances prior to this, but she did an excellent job.
