stories read by me
I've been narrating stories for awhile now and I love it. Fills the theatre void.
(Well, except my microphone doesn't applaud and throw carnations, alas.)
Want to hear something short? I have a flash fiction podcast called Toasted Cake. (Winner of the 2012 Parsec award for Best New Podcast.) Here's a couple of my favorite flash fiction readings (and it was hard to pick, guys, I love them all) and there's loads more at the Toasted Cake site!
As of April 2016, I have a new role as one of the current co-hosts of Escape Pod! Super delighted to be on the team! Check out the current episodes at escapepod.org

audiobooks of my work
The whole Ironskin trilogy was narrated by the amazing Rosalyn Landor
I get a lot of questions about audiobooks for the Seriously Wicked series - I am planning to do these myself! I'm *seriously* looking forward to it. Of course, I'm a bit behind. Ahem. Hoping to release the first one in late 2017.
