IHS: Welcome, Becky! We are excited to have you here with us. Thank you and would you please tell our followers who you are, what city you're from?
Becky: Becky Andrews from Bountiful, Utah.
IHS: That's great! What is the title of the book you just completed with us?
Becky: Look Up, Move Forward
IHS: What an inspiring title! What was your favorite part about bringing this book to audiobook life?
Becky: The journey of finding a narrator that I connected with and that felt a passion for my story was special and rewarding!
IHS: Whether fiction or non-fiction, books are truly inspired work from authors. What was your inspiration for this book?
Becky: To give others hope and tools to Look Up, Move Forward. I wanted to share so that others knew they weren’t alone.
IHS: Great answer! Is your primary business writing? If so, what do you do for fun? If not, what do you do “in real life”?
Becky: My primary business is as a therapist at Resilient Solutions, Inc. Secondary is giving back with retreats for women who are blind/low vision. We are expanding this to encompas retreats for all women. For fun I love to travel, tandem bike with my husband, run, hike, lunch and shopping with friends.
IHS: Shopping! Yes! Okay, next question. Many authors are not audiobook listeners by nature. Are you? Have you ever listened to an audiobook before your own?
Becky: Yes! As a blind woman I absolutely love to listen to audio books.
IHS: Thank goodness for audiobooks! Okay, when you were listening to your narrator auditions, what was it like to hear your book get voiced by different people?
Becky: It was interesting and helped me narrow down what I hoped for in the reader. I wanted them to be able to convey and be passionate about sharing my story.
IHS: Cool! What were you most worried about when starting out with this audiobook process? Did the worry happen or was it unjustified?
Becky: The process was a learning journey. I learned one step at a time. As I do in many of life’s journeys.
