Elated to announce the launch of the audiobook version of my first novel, Eight Pointed Cross. I cannot begin to convey how beautifully narrator Simon Hester brings my story to life, nor can I properly express what a dream come true it is for me to hear my words read aloud by such a talented voice artist.
