Matthew Rubery, author of The Untold Story of the Talking Book.
"Jessica Kaye is the best of the best. She was with me syllable for syllable as I read my memoir - she laughed when I did, got choked up when we couldn't help it, and told me how to pronounce words I'd been saying in my head wrong all these years. Recording with Jessica will always be one of the high points of my career as an author. I'm first in line at her studio, hoping to record my next book!"
Hope Jahren, author of Lab Girl.
