First, let’s meet Jake Urry!
Jake Urry is a British narrator and actor that I luckily stumbled across right as I began to enjoy suspense and mysteries. In fact, he was one of the reasons I gave thrillers a chance. I had gone all this time believing that thrillers were like horror stories and that honestly is a little too gory for me. However, I saw Jake on Twitter and he offered to share an audiobook for new listeners. I love to review new things so I was intrigued. I had only done a handful of audiobooks and they were all romances. After listening to the John Nicholl’s White is the Coldest Colour, I was hooked. I raced around trying to find out about this amazing voice. I located an online interview with Jake so I knew that he has a history of live theater and co-founded and performs in his own company. He, with his talent for voices, is perfect for the audiobook industry. I believe his face is perfect for the stage, so he is one complete package of talent and skill.
I was so honored to be asked by Yvonne Mason to be on her online radio program. She is a mystery/thriller writer in her own right, and I was excited to say yes. I am starting her book The Mad Hatter this evening and I can’t wait.
The hour-long event was so fun. Once I put my nerves aside. I am not the most outgoing person, but I am in line for the most talkative award. The interview was about my writing as Sojourner McConnell and I was able to share the story behind The Path of the Child. I was also able to discuss Mystery Thriller Week and my WIPs .
