I decided to use Amazon's ACX audio book format to produce an audio book for my first novel, Trapped.After listening to samples from a variety of producers, I invited about 6 to audition. After listening to those, my decision was easy.

Mary Kootsikas gave the characters more emotion and excitement than any of the others. Her reading of Trapped was more than I expected. She managed different voices perfectly, and brought a real sense of who the characters were and what they were experiencing.

Was I really happy about Mary's performance? I'm about to contract her for my second novel, A 3rd Time to Die. That should tell you everything. I highly recommend her.
