#MyrtleMondays: Myrtle (and more) on Audio!

Great news for audiobook fans (which is pretty much everyone, right?!): The Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries books are coming out in audiobook editions. Premeditated Myrtle and How to Get Away with Myrtle will arrive October 6, just in time for commuting to resume, perhaps!

Recorded Books has picked up Myrtle 1-4, and cast Welsh actor Bethan Rose Young to read them. You may be familiar with Young’s work from her recent appearance in Knightfall, as the voice of Eva in the English-language version of Netflix’s High Seas, her various voice and theater work, or her YouTube videos, where she’s been singing for years. Check out some of her voice reel–I think you’ll agree, she’ll be the perfect Myrtle!

Myrtle and Luke Skywalker? (Mark Hamill and Bethan Rose Young, Knightfall 2019)

…And Luke Skywalker and me! (With C.J.) Mark Hamill and the Cosplaying Bunces, San Diego Comicon 2011


Now’s a great time to mention that A Curse Dark as Gold is also available in a fabulously spooky and atmospheric audio version.  Click here to hear a sample.

Charlotte Parry reading Charlotte Miller. It was fated. (I actually chose her from a selection of potential narrators!)

What’s your favorite audiobook? I grew up listening to Doug Brown of Iowa Public Radio read classic literature like The Count of Monte Cristo and A Christmas Carol. A great reader adds a magical dimension to a wonderful book, and I can’t wait to hear Bethan Rose Young bring Myrtle to life in a new way!
