10 Questions With… Daryl Mayfield

Category: 10 Questions With...SammWriting Comments: No comments

When I first decided I wanted to do an audiobook of my novel, Little Idiots, I was approached by a lot of producers, but either they just couldn’t get the voices right, or they missed the timing on my writing, causing the jokes to fall flat (But you should’ve heard the British producer; she did a good job, but it was weird hearing Samm with a strong accent). When Daryl Mayfield sent in his audition, I was taken by how he instantly picked up the timing of my writing, which is actually not as easy as you might think. And then I heard him do the main female character’s voice. I had to replay it several times to figure out if it was him, or an actual female, or sound editing. Right then, I knew I had to work with Daryl and I was right; the audiobook sounds amazing...

Little Idiots now available

Category: SammWriting Comments: No comments

Christopher Minori’s new novel, Little Idiots, is now available. The novel picks up where the novella, Devil’s Advocate, left off. Samm is a lower-class demon who’s having the worst day of his millennia: banished from Hell, his powers stripped from him, caught in the middle of a demon turf war, and an escaped demon-hunting soul has Samm in its sights. Satan has promised to allow him back into Hell; all he has to do is capture the soul and discover who helped it escape. The good news is he already knows who it is. The bad news is it’s him. Samm will have to wade through the middle of this insanity if he ever wants to see Hell again. With the help of human detective Barney Little, fellow demon Jude, and a young witch-in-training, he might just make it. But probably not.

10 Questions With… Producer/Actor John O’Hern

Category: 10 Questions With...SammWriting Comments: No comments

With the audiobook version of Christopher Minori’s Dirty Little Secrets near release, we thought it was a good time to get a little close and personal with its producer and actor, John O’Hern.

1. You’re a man of many talents; producer, actor, author. Which is your favorite hat to wear?

I have always been a story teller. It’s my most natural talent (if you saw my golf swing you’d see what an unnatural talent looks like!!) and it’s probably what I was born to do. So…to answer your question I would have to say acting and writing are my most favorite things. I get great pleasure from storytelling and I don’t really care how I do it…by acting or writing one down. Both take a lot of work to properly craft but it’s always worth it in the end.

2. What made you decide to produce Dirty Lit...
