Little Lord Fauntleroy

My latest audio book was published on LibriVox today!

“Little Lord Fauntleroy” by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

I recorded and edited this book as a dramatic reading. I also narrated the book and had to cast many different readers for each character.

This book stars my little brother Steven as Cedric, the hero of the story.
