Thank you for a glorious final production!Hermit Kingdom Press
You are an amazing artist. The whole play came alive, and it drew us in and we felt like we were right there in Israel. We are firmly convinced that all who listen to the production will love it.
Thank you for being our producer!
James, I can’t even come up with enough superlative adjectives to describe the mastery of your narration. Thrilling, would be a start. Your deliberate slow delivery and inflection are impeccable and made the lengthy novel so much easier to follow. THANK YOU! The multitude of voices, the sound effects (love the gun shots), the pauses at just the right places greatly added to Dust Devil. I absolutely fell in love with your interpretation of Cody’s voice – and Grant’s, as well. But Cody’s tone was perfect. I could see him so clearly through your voice.Parris Afton Bonds
