Talking about Narrating Audiobooks with Scott Feighner

I grew up listening to my dad play to audiobooks on road trips, and I've always loved what a good narrator can do with a good text. But the process--how you actually go about bringing a story to life in audio form--has been mostly unknown to me. And I'm sure to a lot of us. All I know is it must be more complicated than "Read it out loud."

Which is why today it's my pleasure to talk with not just a good narrator, but a great one. Scott F. Feighner has narrated dozens of books, mostly in the horror genre. I know Scott because I had the honor of having him narrate one of my own, my short story collection, Animus.

Scott and I talk about what makes audiobooks so magical and how he does what he does, from picking material to inventing the voices of characters to putting it all together into the final book. 

And if you stick around to the end, you'll get to hear Scott narrate one of my own stories, a twisted little tale called "Snowed In."
