    / 5 Shoreline Press (RI) for Job #193847 The Amazing Life & Times of Austin T. Levy This was a wonderful experience. Working with James Herron was a dream. He has the voice of authority and when he story-tells, you listen. And WE listened. He has helped us tell our one-hour documentary in a clear and compelling style that raises the overall quality level of the listener and viewer's experience.
    Though we are in Rhode Island where people "tawk funny," James did not back down when we pointed out a few of our pronunciation quirks. Instead, he embraced the challenge and slammed it out of the park. We've got a wonderful narration and when the film finishes its premiere and film festival route, it will hit PBS and make another splash. James Herron is a total professional. He takes your script, he asks how he can be helpful, he makes deadlines.
    I am thrilled we got to work with James Herron on this film.
    You want quality and a professional collaborator on your project?
    Two words:
    James Herron.
