Narrator Update – Xe Sands
Update – Whatcha been up to since last year? Whatever you want to share, be it personal life achievements or professional successes.
Oh goodness! It has been a bit of a crazy, exciting year. On the work front, I was incredibly honored to receive an Audie along with Simon Vance for our co-narration of Euphoria, by Lily King, an exceptional piece of historical fiction based (very loosely) on Margaret Mead’s time in Papua New Guinea. Incredibly rewarding project and a privilege to narrate with such an inspiring and talented colleague. I’ve also been having a blast recording a number of titles from Kristan Higgins for Recorded Books, including Too Good To Be True, Just One of the Guys and Fools Rush In, as well as If You Only Knew, Higgins’s first contemporary women’s fiction novel, co-narrated with the talented Amy Rubinate, the narrator HIggins’s Blue Heron series.
On the personal side of things, this year has largely been about helping our daughter make her way through the insanity that is the college admissions process. She has worked so hard throughout her academic career to get to this point, to both prepare herself for college and still manage to enjoy her childhood, and regardless of where she ultimately attends, I could not be prouder of her.
