Petrea Burchard is an author and audiobook narrator. Her Arthurian time-slip novel, "Camelot & Vine," follows a failing Hollywood actress who falls through a gap in time and accidentally saves King Arthur's life. Burchard's essays, collected in "Act As If: Stumbling Through Hollywood With Headshot in Hand," are based on her experiences as a journeyman actor in Hollywood.

Burchard loves to narrate sinister stories about grown-ups with strong and broken hearts. Her most popular audiobook narrations include "Sanctuary City," the thriller by USA Today bestselling author Kristi Belcamino, Rickie Blair's popular Leafy Hollow cozy mysteries, and the Kat Carter Fraud Legal Thrillers by Colleen Cross, among others.

“I had no one else to call. Nobody needed me. I had constructed my life to make certain of it. I'd remained aloof in acting class, been too cool to give my phone number to people I met on the set. I hadn't wanted the complications of being nice.”
Petrea Burchard, Camelot & Vine

“It is all true, or it ought to be; and more and better besides.”
Winston S. Churchill

“This is the oath of a Knight of King Arthur's Round Table and should be for all of us to take to heart. I will develop my life for the greater good. I will place character above riches, and concern for others above personal wealth, I will never boast, but cherish humility instead, I will speak the truth at all times, and forever keep my word, I will defend those who cannot defend themselves, I will honor and respect women, and refute sexism in all its guises, I will uphold justice by being fair to all, I will be faithful in love and loyal in friendship, I will abhor scandals and gossip-neither partake nor delight in them, I will be generous to the poor and to those who need help, I will forgive when asked, that my own mistakes will be forgiven, I will live my life with courtesy and honor from this day forward.”
King Arthur

“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”
Gore Vidal

“Listen carefully to first criticisms made of your work. Note just what it is about your work that critics don't like - then cultivate it. That's the only part of your work that's individual and worth keeping.”
Jean Cocteau

“Classifiable things reek of death. You must strike out in other spheres . . . quit the ranks. That's the sign of masterpieces and heroes. An original, that's the person to astonish and to rule.”
Jean Cocteau
