Series 2 - Girls of Dirt
Set 500 years after the first series, with brand new characters and some well-loved names from the first books, this is a story about the women of Dirt and the dragons that become their friends. Strong female leads, a wonderful tale. Coming soon: Dragons of Dirt and the dramatic People of Dirt.
Includes a recap of series one.
Surviving Mr Dickens
I am currently recording Oliver Twist. I love working with the words of Dickens. His characters are completely over the top, his writing is sarcastic and meaningful, and his stories are perfect.
But they didn't have professional narrators and studios in the 19th Century, and sometimes his incredibly long sentences floor me. This is about one of them.

The Witch and The Bear
Witches aren't all bad, and when one particular witch called Buttercup the Small comes home after a long night driving off bad spirits, she is in for a bit of a surprise!
A story for All Hallows Eve, perhaps, and for smaller people especially!
Messing around with new gear
I have at last come to the end of the studio refit and am now settling down to some serious fun!
Unicorns and Young Girls
I have a friend (oh, good for me!) She is eleven, just, and is rather mad about unicorns. Oh, she likes dragons, but if all my dragons were to magically turn into unicorns I would have a friend for life.
So, I have started writing a tale which includes unicorns. Of course, this is me, and I can't stick with a simple fairy tale, can I! Nope, it is developing into a potential series aimed at 11 ups with plenty of adult stuff in there as well. Fun!
The Jack Calder Crime Series
The Jack Calder series of books are written by Seumas Gallacher and are a fast-paced, hard-edged series of seven books following a group of former SAS commandos in their work for an international security company.
I am turning them into audiobooks for your delight!
Setting up at home to record audiobooks
If you are going to record your own books into audiobook form, you must do it properly. Despite some people saying you can simply record on your phone, this will produce an inferior product that annoys and infuriates listeners who are used to professionally recorded books.
I am not going through all possible buying choices here, you will need to do your own research, but this will hopefully give you a good starting point.
A Christmas Carol Audiobook
A brand new presentation of the original story by Charles Dickens, narrated by CC Hogan in a London accent. A dark and yet warm telling of this iconic tale.
The Joy of the Wonderful Breath
From time to time, the subject of breaths in recording comes up - should they stay or should they go?
The answer is, of course, quite simple - they should stay. But let me breath a little life into this debate and explain why.
Audiobooks of the classics by Charles Dickens
I am just starting out on a long-term venture to record the most famous books by Charles Dickens in my London Accent.
This is a big departure from the normal RP British presentation, but I think it brings the stories to life in a new, wonderful way.
