Interview with an Author: Becky Andrews

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.
