With our experienced panel members:
Robert Blumenfeld (audio book narrator) lives and works as an actor, dialect coach, and writer in New York City, and is a longtime member of Equity, and SAG-AFTRA. He has performed in numerous regional and New York theaters, recorded four hundred audiobooks and authored fifteen books, including Acting with the Voice: The Art of Book Recording (2004), and two novels.
Laura K. Curtis (audio book author) gave up a life writing dry academic papers for writing decidedly less dry fiction. A member of RNA, MWA, ITW, and HWA, she has trouble settling into one genre. While she is best known as a writer of romantic suspense, she has also written contemporary romance novels and short crime fiction. Her first gothic story was published in 2015’s Protectors 2: Heroes anthology and everything she’s written since has been touched by the weird.
Faith L. Justice (panel moderator/audio book author) writes award-winning fiction and articles in Brooklyn, New York. Her work appeared in such publications as Salon.com, Writer’s Digest, and The Copperfield Review. Her most recent novel is Twilight Empress: A Novel of Imperial Rome. For fun, Faith likes to dig in the dirt—her garden and various archaeological sites.
Gordon Rothman (audio book director/author narrator coach) spent his early career producing hundreds broadcasts for CBS News. As executive director of Gatewave Radio, a nonprofit service for blind listeners, he coached dozens of amateurs to serve as volunteer narrators. He directs audio books for Penguin Random House, Harper Collins, and Brilliance Audio, among others, and is a member of the Audio Publishers Association.
