MB: Unless it's a book from a series that I'm already doing, I don't know anything about the script before I get it. The casting is usually done by the audiobook producer (Audible Studios, in the case of The Aspergers Mystery Series) and if they decide on me for the job, that's the first I see of the script.
JC: How do you develop a voice for the narrator (Samuel Hoenig) and then the other characters?
JC: Do you have to refer back to old recordings when a new book comes in to remember how you voiced a character in previous books?
JC: How much more difficult is it to voice female characters? Should I be careful about writing them in the future?
JC: Do you read the whole book before starting, or do you approach it in sections?
JC: What’s the recording process like? What do you do in a typical day?
JC: You’re also a stage, film and television actor. Aside from the obvious, is there a difference to the process of creating a character for an audiobook?
JC: While the Asperger’s books are not written from the perspective of someone who wants to be funny, Samuel’s stories should hopefully have some laughs in them. How are you cognizant of that in the performance, and how do you approach comedy as opposed to something more dramatic?
JC: Because Samuel does have Asperger’s, which he considers simply an aspect of his personality, did you have to do any research before starting THE QUESTION OF THE MISSING HEAD?
