My Chat with Brad Wills

Hello and welcome!

Today I have the owner of a voice I fell in love with from the first word. His Scottish brogue is just plain sexy.

Brad Wills

Welcome Brad Wills! Thanks for coming to my little corner of the blogging world!

Do you have a nickname?
Nope, I’ve always been “Brad”, but over the years many of my friends have spontaneously started called me “Bradley”.

There is one, an alias, that you have not mentioned, that I’ve seen on FB … Mr. Sexy 😀

What is one word best describes you?
Only one?! I don’t think there’s anyone in this world who can be best described by only one word. So lets say ‘multifaceted’. Wait … that’s one word, isn’t it?
Yes, indeed it is! Double checked it.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I laugh a lot, and loudly. From the crude to the keenly witty, and everything in between.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Bread baking, bacon frying, salt in the ocean air…I can’t pick one. They all trigger some sense memory. However, I LOATHE the smell of tar, and just about any perfume or cologne. My sense of smell is very acute, and those things will give me a two-day headache.

Favourite place to spend time in.
Solitude. I’ve always been kind of a loner, ever since I can remember. I love my friends and family, but I find it necessary to have a lot of alone time. I can listen to music, read, walk, a have my own thoughts for company.
I know what you mean. I find myself the best company too 😉

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
No serial killers, no abuse of children, no porn.

Audiobooks! What started them?
A friend and fellow narrator, Teresa Willis, got me started. She had recorded a few titles, and thought I might be good at it. She introduced me to her engineer, and he and I hit it off immediately. We worked tirelessly, sometimes for no money at all, making contacts and beefing up our product. Once we fell in with Suzan Tisdale, it really picked up.
I will have to send a thank you note to Ms. Willis 😀

Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
See above. Ha!

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I wish that I had the talent to write. I fairly good at crafting my prose, but unfortunately I’m not an “idea” person.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I hope so. I try to infuse the narration with as much truth and passion as possible. Whether or not I’m successful is entirely subjective on the part of the listener.
I think many of your fans would say that you are successful!

Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
I don’t personally have an intended audience; that’s mostly dictated by the genre which I’m narrating. But I enjoy narrating Romances, and also Gothic thrillers and epic adventure, although my output in both categories is relatively small. I only hope that whomever may be listening will be engaged in the story as I’m telling it, and that I’ve done justice to the authors’ words.

What is next in your narrating work?
SERPENT by Kathryn Le Veque and THE HIGHLAND HENCHMAN by Amy Jarecki are both in the final stages of post-production (I’ve been sidelined by some nasty weather here!). Next week, I’ll start recording DEVIL’S DOMINION followed by BEAST, both for Ms. Le Veque, then FREDERICK’S QUEEN and CAELEN’S WIFE for Suzan Tisdale.
Looking forward to listening to more audiobooks narrated by you! I have not listened to yet (or read) the The Forest Knights by J. K. Swift, so I think I will check those out too.

Thank you for chatting with me today, Brad!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed this chat and you will give a chance to Mr. Wills’ audiobooks. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Here is my review on my fave audiobook narrated by him:

“unforgettable, the best one yet”

Overall 5 stars • Performance 5 stars • Story 5 stars
Would you listen to Wee William’s Woman again? Why?
Oh I definitely would! Wee William is my fave character in the whole series and I waited for his audio for seems like forever LOL I think this is the best performance of Brad Wills yet of any I heard so far.
What other book might you compare Wee William’s Woman to and why?
There is no comparison, each book/audio has a charm and story that keeps it unique, and this one is definitely unique.
What about Brad Wills’s performance did you like?
Where do I start? Loved the deep voice, the flexibility of switching from character to character, be that woman, man, child, old or young, English or Scottish accents, I wondered sometimes if there is really only his voice. The passion with which he tells the tale is incredible, pulled me in and didn’t let go.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, it was, alas real life interferes sometimes, I also wanted to drag it out so it will last longer.
Any additional comments?
I loved the book when I read it, but now having listened to it narrated by the incredible voice of Brad Wills, Wee William is burrowed in my heart for good. There will be more times where I will be listening to this audio. Thank you Ms. Tisdale for a great story and Mr. Wills for telling it in such a wonderful and unforgettable way.

    The last audio book I was able to enjoy was Queen of the Damned. Enjoyed the chat but do ‘t put me in the drawing. Wish I could listen to a book.

  2. Sounds like someone is going to be very busy. Loved the interview.

  3. So glad to see you have Brad Wills. He is the narrator that really got me hooked completely to audiobooks. And yes, he’s got a voice to die for and uses it to evoke plenty of emotion. I love the way he whispers!

    I’m currently listening to THE HONORABLE HIGHLANDER by Nancy Lee Badger, narrator,Tracy Marks. I always leave a review. I know how much love goes into these productions!

    • I’ll have to check out that audio. Thanks for dropping by Eileen!
      I know you post reviews, that is just a reminder to those who do not. I didn’t realize how important reviews are until I started chatting more with authors on FB.
