Were you wondering...

... who they would get to read the Andromeda Klein audio book? Well, I'll tell you anyway. It's an actress named Deirdre Lovejoy.

Born in Texas, raised in Elkart Indiana, eh? Midwesterners are a funny thing when it comes to dialect (I too am a Midwesterner). People in this region either sound like a hick from Tennessee, have a plain and non-descript dialect that makes for excellent newscasters or as in my case sound like somebody from Northern Michigan or Ontario Canada. I'm sure she has a lovely voice but I would imagine somebody from Frank's books either having the Cali Valley sounding dialect, the non-descript dialect or an English accent.

You may also sound like Dennis Farina if you're from Chicago.

Hey, I'm from Chicago and I resent that last comment. Some of us sound like Norm from cheers.

Frank, that's fantastic. I'm also a big fan of The Wire, and she was absolutely great in it.

Trey, I hear you. I come from a largely Swedish community here in Kansas (and there are many of them here in Kansas, as well as the Dakotas and especially Minnesota)...and so a lot of us (I am half Swede myself) sound like the pregnant highway patrol trooper in the movie Fargo. You betcha.

I'm just genuinely excited that a woman who did a Preperation H advert is reading your book.
