REPOST: Davina Porter interview

Davina Porter is back in the recording studio this week, beginning work on the audio version of WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD! Let's all wish her the best of luck over the next several weeks.  I can't wait to hear the audio version of the book!

In honor of the occasion, I thought I'd repost a very interesting two-part interview from 2009, with Davina Porter and her husband, Gus, in which Davina talks in detail about her work.  Be sure to watch both parts!

Part 1:



Part 2 (you may want to skip the first bit; the part relating to her work starts around 2:20)



I was quite amused to hear her reaction, in part 2, to the fact that she'd messed up Donner's voice in ABOSAA (making him sound like a Liverpudlian instead of a Native American). Oh, well, we can hope she'll be more careful with the minor characters in MOHB!

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did! For more about Davina Porter, look here.  And if you haven't yet listened to the OUTLANDER audiobooks, I highly recommend them!

I loved this. Hearing Davina describe what she does is fascinating - including her "blooper" with one of Diana's characters. Thanks for posting.

I love, love, LOVE Davina Porter. I have listened to all of the Outlander series through her voice and can't wait for her new recording. I wayched this interview a year or so ago and was fascinated to hear it.
