How does listening to your books compare to the reading experience?

I have to admit that I cannot listen to my books. I usually manage the first few words and that’s it. Why? Because I am thinking maybe I should have changed that word or sentence or that particular piece of dialogue. I am highly critical and once a book is published in whatever format I find it very hard to look at it again and even harder to listen to it despite the fact that the narrator has done a fantastic job.

Does the narrator of your DI Andy Horton crime novels, Gordon Griffin, bring anything to the Andy Horton series that you didn’t expect?

Gordon Griffin’s reputation as a narrator is well deserved and I’m privileged that he has made the audio books of the Inspector Andy Horton series so popular. I think this particular reviews for Dead Man’s Wharf, sums it up perfectly.

"Gordon Griffin's delivery enhances the story's setting, the Solent area of the south coast of England, with its atmosphere of mist and the scent of the sea. As gruff Inspector Andy Horton uncovers fact after fact concerning the mysterious deaths at a nursing home, the scope of the crimes only seems to grow. Griffin makes us feel the pain and terror of hidden violence. It's a moving portrayal. D.R.W. AudioFile Magazine.
