A Destiny to Die For – Book I
A Destiny to Die For never reached the audition pool. Instead, even before the paperback and eBook were published, Rik trawled through the producers on the Audible audiobook site – and there are a lot of them! Unlike what it might sound, he wasn’t looking for a narrator; he wanted to imagine the story with a voice behind it. It takes a lot of patience and imagination and a lot of hours had passed before he happened upon samples by Stephanie Montalvo. When he did, it was no longer a passing interest. The decision was made right there and then. He didn’t want her to produce the audio; he needed her to do it. As soon as the book versions were published, he approached her about producing the audio version. He asked nicely but was willing to beg. She asked for a digital copy of the book before making a decision and Rik’s luck was in; she loved it. Listen to the sample above, I think you’ll like it, too.
Steph is a classically trained stage actor whose audiobook style is rich and youthful, quick, and has an upbeat pace that will pull you along comfortably through the story. The more completed chapters Rik received from her, the more he knew she had been the perfect choice to produce this exciting Brazilian tale of drugs and assassination.

The Way We Were
Rik listened to a lot of auditions from professional narrators interested in recounting the romantic stories from the book, The Way We Were. They were all good, so much so he hated choosing one over another, but choose he did, and Bob Sterry was the chosen one. Why? Bob’s voice is clear and compelling with a laid-back rhythm that makes you want to sit in an easy chair and give it your full attention; in other words, it was made for this book. An audio sample is available below, so listen to it for yourself. Other than being a narrator, Bob writes poetry and performs on stage. You can find out more about him on his Website.
Birth of an Assassin
Rik had listened to a number of auditions vying for the narration of the thriller Birth of an Assassin, and they were all more than capable of carrying it off, but on hearing Dennis Kleinman’s rendition he knew there could be no other for the job. The spectrum of accomplished dialects Dennis has in his repertoire is really quite amazing and Stone is more than a little proud to have him produce this audiobook. Visit Dennis’s Website
Dennis has since completed two more books in the Birth of an Assassin series; The Turkish Connection and The Man in the Blue Fez. Listen to samples below, and if you’re not already an Audible listener, click the button and get a copy for free.
