Listen to that …

I am a ham. I like getting up in front of people and holding forth. My first career goal was to become a big Broadway star. I still watch the Tony Awards acceptance speeches for hints about what to say when I win for best leading performance in a musical.

When I speak in bookstores or libraries or sisterhood luncheons, I sometimes read a few pages from one of my books. The reviews are generally good. “Do you record your own books?”

I know better. It takes a very good actress to give voice to many characters and maintain consistency for 250+ pages.

But when I was invited to record a passage for The Drum, an online “Literary Magazine for your Ears,” I coudn’t resist.

Here’s the link.

It’s okay. I’m not mortified, but even more certain that it’s better left to the professionals.

    I’m enjoying it now and think you did a smashing job!

    Wonderful! And great to see you hamming it up in Jackson Hole. (I got some great photos of you on the balloon this morning, too!)
