Stuffed Courage: Adventure One, the Halloween Child

I am a Protector of Dreams, a defender against nightmares, a light in the darkness, and with stuffed courage, I will not fail!
Alexander Hitch was born on Halloween and has a strange connection to magic. He swears that something lives in his closet or maybe underneath his bed. The boy is misunderstood. No one believes him, and to make matters worse any and all talk of magic is banned – a law executed by his blockhead of a father. But the boy is special in more ways than even he suspects.
When Alex discovers a ragged teddy bear by chance, he hopes for a descent night sleep. But the monster that haunts him grows brave and attacks. It threatens to devour him and the town on his approaching eighth birthday, which happens to be Halloween.
The mysterious teddy bear comes to life and defends Alex, risking his own stitching. The two are linked by a special bond that neither understand. This is because the teddy bear has amnesia. The only way to survive the long night is for Alexander to help the teddy bear remember his purpose.
Doing this is no easy task as Alexander will have to brave the nightmare, outsmart an annoying sister, and avoid his clueless parents that only get in the way. The young boy and his teddy bear find their courage pushed to its magical limits in this brave new adventure!

Free Audiobook #5

Beyond Freud: From Individual to Social Psychoanalysis

Throughout his scientific work, Erich Fromm pursued the twin goal of uncovering the social unconscious of the individual as well as the unconscious of social entities. As Fromm wrote in 1936, “The problem within psychology and sociology is the dialectic intertwining of natural and historical factors. Freud has wrongly based psychology totally on natural factors.”
On these themes, the present book consists of four dynamic sections:
  • (1) Man’s Impulse Structure and Its Relation to Culture
  • (2) Psychic Needs and Society (1956 lecture)
  • (3) Dealing with the Unconscious (1959 lecture), and
  • (4) The Relevance of Psychoanalysis for the Future (1975 lecture)
It is an intensive understanding of psychoanalytic theory, relating Freudian insights and practices to the needs of society; dealing with the unconscious in psychotherapeutic practice; and considering the relevance of Freud’s discoveries for therapy today.

Gemini

Like, any species would, they sent a satellite to study their star system. The good news, hidden on the other side of their sun ‘there was another planet’, and the bad news, ‘there was another planet’. Once they found the other planet, the situation changed rapidly and the peaceful Raog had to face an Alien Invasion, and defend themselves, their civilization, their religion, and their very existence.
Along the way, they endured violent acts against them. New leaders emerged and their society was forced to change in order to survive. They had to adapt, learn new technologies, and learn to fight. And most of all they found that their beliefs had to grow to reflect the new realities they faced.

Walk to Freedom: Kriegsgefangenen #6410

June 30, 1944: Fifty members of the United States 460th Bomb Group embarked on an important mission to destroy German oil refineries in Silesia, Hungary, only to come under heavy attack. Above the cloud cover, German twin-engine Me-410 fighters firing 20-millimeter cannons blasted seven B-24s out of the sky.
Seventeen US airmen were killed, 24 captured, with many of them badly burned, wounded, or beaten to death by Hungarian peasants after parachuting to the ground. This single event marked the beginning of a heart-wrenching episode in the life of one airman: T/Sgt. John L. Lenburg.
On his 36th mission, he was shot down along with the crew of their B-24, “Miss Fortune”, over enemy lines near Lake Balaton, Hungary. Taken prisoner (or “Kriegsgefangenen #6410”, the code name the Germans gave him), he never knew if he would see his homeland again. Walk to Freedom: Kriegsgefangenen #6410 – Prisoner of War is Lenburg’s powerful, compelling account of his 327 days of imprisonment and long walk to freedom 11 months after his capture.
Recalling the inhumane treatment and horrific conditions of his encampment, the missions and memories, and the reunions of the few who survived 50 years later, this revised and expanded memoir demonstrates why Lenburg and his crew were “the greatest generation” of their time.

As a US Marine of the Vietnam Era it was a privilege for me to narrate this account from WWII.

US Marshall Shorty Thompson Series: Whiskers McPherson & Gabriel O’Grady

Mackland McPherson, a.k.a. Whiskers McPherson, headed west to the Rocky Mountains. Set upon by road agents twice before getting to the Mississippi River, he realized he was a greenhorn and needed a rifle and pistol to survive.
Heading west across Kansas, for the first time in his life, he found what real fear was. Indians kept him hunkered down in a buffalo wallow for days before cowboys rode up and saved his life. Instead of letting him ride on to certain death, the ranch these cowboys worked for would not let him go on west until he learned everything they knew about surviving.
He did learn and became one of the last fur-trapping mountain men in the Sangre de Cristo Range of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.

Why Are You Reading this?

As a voice talent, I have often wondered what would draw a visitor of my site to my blog page. After all, I bring the words of others to life; I don’t create the words in the first place.

People who come to my website are looking for an actor to play a role in their commercial, be the voice of an animated character, their company or product, or narrate their film. They don’t want to know how I do it or how I feel about it—they just want to get it done.

So obviously there isn’t going to be a lot of blogging going on around here. I’m too busy talking to concentrate on writing.

What I can tell you here is how I can help you if you’re looking for a voice. Most folks looking for a voice already have a very good idea in their mind what they want to hear—sometimes it’s difficult for them to put it into words, but they know it when they hear it.

Of course, everyone wants a “conversational” read. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for me,) there are all sorts of conversations. The best I can hope to do is to give you a wide range of work that I have done and you can hear for yourself. If you want to put me in a box with a bow and label, you can title it, “Adult, male, warm, approachable, knowledgeable and worldly wise. A dad, mentor, confidant and trusted friend.”

I can do characters and accents for stories, films, animations and computer games. These will play true to character from a 30 second commercial, short or feature film all the way through a novel. I work with some of the best coaches, directors and producers in the business and continue to hone my craft every day.

I hope to be speaking for you soon.
