SFN: What gave you the idea to add narrating audiobooks to your busy life and career?
TP: I have been a voice actor for nearly a decade now. In 2018, I was working with an acting coach of mine who suggested I give audiobooks a try. I was already a massive listener of audiobooks (mainly romance), so I did -- and on my first book, I got absolutely hooked.
SFN: If you could spend either a week in the past or a week in the future, where and when would you go?
TP: I'd love to spend a week in New York City in the 1940's-50's. There's just something about the energy of that era that I'd be ecstatic to visit.
SFN: What is your least favorite word to pronounce in a narration? What is your favorite word to roll around in your mouth?
TP: Grasped. It's just begging for a mistake. Not sure I have a favorite though. Although I am partial to the f word.
SFN: When you read for pleasure, what is your go-to genre?
TP: Spend time with my family. I have two sons who are the loves of my life -- I have a platonic life mate (we married, found out romance wasn't for us, but realized we were still good at doing life together, so we decided to raise our kids together, as friends), and a 4 lb toy poodle. They all light me up so much.
SFN: Is there a narrator or an author that you'd love to shine a light on?
TP: Liam DiCosimo. He recently went full-time as a narrator, and he deserves his flowers. He has burst onto the scene and really puts his all into his performances. Doesn't hurt that he's been my best friend for a couple decades.
and be sure to check out his work in recent releases Good Hands by Kelly Jamieson and Unsung by Amy Knupp!
