I was also employed for over 30 years as a university medical librarian, so I am familiar with medical terminology. I'm a published author of numerous nonfiction articles for children in children's magazines along with book reviews and some adult fiction and poetry in 'little' or literary magazines.

Narrator Lee Ann Howlett personifies Southern charm and grit as she tells the story of Memphis’ Sun Records, the label that produced Elvis, Johnny Cash, and many other notables. The author was a rarity during the 1950s and ’60s–a woman working in the business world. Howlett exuberantly presents owner Sam Phillips, with his Billy Graham smile and enthusiasm; Sun Records’ employees, and diverse musicians. Her conversational style enhances this insider look at “non-mainstream” American music.Audiofile Magazine
Narrator Lee Ann Howlett delightfully portrays Clarice, whose enthusiasm and emotion abound, much to her occasional embarrassment. Howlett also provides strong characterizations of Amy, Amy’s French-Canadian boyfriend, and pre- and post-WWII Germans.Audiofile Magazine
The narrator for this audiobook edition, Lee Ann Howlett, was truly remarkable. Her southern accent and charm enhanced these stories and brought each one to life. Overall, this was a wonderful audiobook experience and one that I would certainly recommend…FOUR stars.The Book Barista
Narration for this audiobook was provided by Lee Ann Howlett, I’ve previously listened to one of her narrations of an F. Scott Fitzgerald short, and again she did not disappoint. Her diction, simple inflection and tonal changes and subtle delineation from one character to the next are perfectly suited to the text and are a great enhancement.I am, Indeed
Lee Ann Howlett told this story the way it was meant to be. The times were hard and people were haggard and worn. She portrayed this perfectly. She added the element that portrayed the lives of the early pioneers as they moved west. Great work!SixthDimension Audiobook Reviews
I absolutely loved Lee Ann Howlett’s narration of this book… What really made this an excellent performance though weren’t just the different voices of her characters but also the accents. I am a native Texan and so many times I come across audio books or even on television where an actor or narrator will butcher the accent but Lee Ann Howlett was spot on.Reflections of a BookWorm
