Winner of the Audie Award for Inspirational/Faith-Based Fiction 2018


About the Creator

Melanie Dobson is the award-winning author of 20 historical romance, suspense, and time-slip novels. Four of her novels have won Carol Awards, and Catching the Wind was nominated for a Christy Award in the Historical Fiction category, in addition to winning an Audie Award for Inspirational/Faith-Based Fiction. A former publicist, Melanie now enjoys teaching both writing and public relations classes at George Fox University when she isn’t busy writing. She and her husband, Jon, have two daughters. After moving numerous times with work, the Dobson family has settled near Portland, Oregon, where they love to hike and camp in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and along the Pacific Coast. Melanie also enjoys exploring ghost towns and abandoned homes, helping care for kids in her community, and reading stories with her girls.

About the Performer

Nancy Peterson began her career with petty theft. Her dad’s brand-new and strictly off-limits tape recorder was too tempting to bear. Purloining the gadget, she and her friends recreated worlds from their favorite books as they read out loud for hours on end. She never could have dreamed that this would be the beginning of a career she loves. An Audie Award-winning narrator and multiple Voice Arts and Independent Audiobook Awards nominee, Nancy has a penchant for dialects—diving deep into the study of language. Her narration style, summed up by AudioFile magazine, "creates the sense of listening to a play instead of a straightforward reading." Nancy resides near the foothills of Salt Lake City with her husband and children, two dogs, three fish, one turtle, one snake, a hive of bees, and a gecko.
