Next week I’ll be heading to Albuquerque, New Mexico for GRL (the Gay Romance Lit conference) to meet up with authors, publishers and readers of gay romance. What may be surprising for a lot of people (but not those who have attended a Gay Romance Lit event!) is that the majority of gay romance readers, writers and publishers are women. Yup, true fact!
This year in addition to attending GRL as an audiobook narrator and producer, I’ll be bringing a small camera crew to make a documentary episode of the OUTspoken series that I produce for OUTtv Canada. I’m excited and intrigued to find out why so many women (predominantly straight women) are gaga about gay romance books.
As an audiobook narrator, working with authors, agents and publishing houses directly to bring their books to life has been a real joy for me. I’ve always loved reading and now having the opportunity to produce audiobooks is such a dream job. I used to watch my father go to work everyday in a suit and tie. As a child, I never would have guessed that my career would allow me to work from a home studio.
