FALSE MERMAID is now out in audiobook from Audible.com, and I’m happy to report that it’s read by none other than Rosalyn Landor, who also read the unabridged versions of HAUNTED GROUND and LAKE OF SORROWS (under a different stage name, Jennifer McMahon).
Roz is an amazing reader, who has also narrated the work of P.D. James, Elizabeth George, Ruth Rendell (AND Barbara Vine!), Henning Mankell, Peter Robinson, Charles Todd, and that’s just in crime fiction — she’s also well-versed in historical fiction, romance, so-called chick-lit, and literature, including A.S. Byatt’s latest, THE CHILDREN’S BOOK. You can see a sampling of Roz's recent narration work at Audible.com.
And in addition to doing audiobook narration, Roz is a multi-talented actress with extensive theater, film, and television credits. Mystery fans might be pleased to know that Roz has appeared in Rumpole of the Bailey and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, starring Jeremy Brett. (Roz played Helen Stoner, step-daughter and would-be victim of Dr. Grimesby Roylott in The Speckled Band. And for all you sci-fi geeks, she was also in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation...)
The audiobook of FALSE MERMAID was released while I was in Ireland in mid-September, but I haven't yet trumpeted the news to the whole world. (See post below for explanation...)
