Who's That Voice?

I haven't wrote about this lately, but as I work to get "I Remember Judy" made into an audiobook, I want to push a couple narrator friends of mine. First, if you are looking for a male voice and can afford him, David L White is a wonderful guy with whom to work. David will flat out tell you that it... Sign in to see full entry.
