Undiscovered Country: A Spiritual Adventure by Kathryn Hulme – Narrated by Mary Castillo

A chance encounter with a spiritual master in a Paris cafe, radically changed the trajectory of the life of author Kathryn Hulme.

Best-selling author, world traveler, humanitarian and spiritual seeker, Hulme lived and loved with a courage that defied the age. Long out of print and forgotten, her memoir is now available in audio, print and ebook.

Undiscovered Country is a tribute to Gurdjieff and his teachings, a vivid personal memoir of her experience as his student, and of the burning spiritual intensity that dominated her life as a result of his unflinching guidance and fatherly love.

The first thing you should know is: I did it.

The moment I read the opening line to Stardusted: A Frankie Franklin Mystery, I was in! Ever since my grandma introduced to classic movies starring Myrna Loy,  Jean Harlow, Olivia de Havilland, Errol Flynn and Clark Gable, I’ve had a thing for old Hollywood. In this cozy comedic mystery set in the 1930s, I got to be the voice of America’s Kid Sister, Frankie Franklin who holds the smoking gun in a terrible on-set prank, or attempted murder…

Thank you, Deb McCaskey for allowing me to play in your world of glamour and grit!

I’m honored to have narrated Rye’s Reprieve Montana Sky Series (Harper Ranch Book 1) by Louella Nelson.

I’ve been an avid reader of Debra Holland‘s Montana Sky Series, and it was a lot of fun to take on the voices of characters like Prudence Morgan who was a heroine of the related Mail-Order Brides of the West series.

Thank you, Debra & Louella, for this fun project.

About the book

In 1886, gifted surgeon Rye Rawlins is trapped by a tragic secret so painful that he denies his profession and buries himself in a gold mine in Montana Territory. But saving people is second nature, whether it’s doctoring a man mauled by a mountain lion or battling a wolf to save a child. Veterinarian and horse rancher Missouri Harper suffers through the worst winter in Montana history to provide for three beautiful sisters and an ailing aunt. Dangerous storms, privation, and wild predators make survival precarious.

Rye comes to Missouri’s aid, putting his life in danger and Missouri in his debt. As they fall in love, his secret and her promise to remain a spinster to protect the land for her family force them to look within to discover the cost of love.

Rye’s Reprieve was originally published as a Montana Sky Kindle world book.

Bringing Hollywood’s Golden Age to life in Stardusted

New audiobook narrated by Mary!

From the back cover of Stardusted:

Meet Frankie Franklin, “America’s Kid Sister,” one of the brightest stars in 1930s Hollywood. Onscreen she’s clever and brave, and always bests the bad guys. But now Frankie is confronted with a real-life mystery and real-life peril, after a young actor is shot and almost dies on the set of her latest film. How did it happen? And are there lives still in danger? Though her studio wants to sweep it all under the rug and move on, Frankie is driven to find out what happened, and with good reason: She was the one who pulled the trigger.

New audiobook coming to Audible


I’m thrilled to have narrated + produced Rye’s Reprieve  by Louella Nelson!

As the narrator, I got to experience the wilds of Montana circa 1886. Here’s the description from the back cover and a sneak peek of what’s coming soon to Audible.

In 1886, gifted surgeon Rye Rawlins is trapped by a tragic secret so painful that he denies his profession and buries himself in a gold mine in Montana Territory. But saving people is second nature, whether it’s doctoring a man mauled by a mountain lion or battling a wolf to save a child. Veterinarian and horse rancher Missouri Harper suffers through the worst winter in Montana history to provide for three beautiful sisters and an ailing aunt. Dangerous storms, privation, and wild predators make survival precarious.
Rye comes to Missouri’s aid, putting his life in danger and Missouri in his debt. As they fall in love, his secret and her promise to remain a spinster to protect the land for her family force them to look within to discover the cost of love.
Rye’s Reprieve was originally published as a Montana Sky Kindle World book.

There’s a reason why shoes don’t come in one-size-fits all!

Best friends since back in the day, Aggie and Nely are as different as two women could possibly be. Aggie’s slim and stylish, owns an upscale boutique and a long history of no-strings relationships. Nely has a busy baby, a metiche mother-in-law, and some extra post-pregnancy pounds she can’t quite shed. And when they take a trip to a New Age spa, each friend finds herself wishing just a little that she had the other one’s life.

Big mistake!

Thanks to the metaphysical meddling of a somewhat grumpy guru, Nely is now Aggie and Aggie is Nely–switching bodies, love lives, families, closets…everything! The grass may not be quite as green as the other originally appeared. As luck has it, they’ll be stuck this way until the next full moon! And with a husband, his very suspicious mama, a temperamental tot, a business on the brink of disaster, and a sort-of boyfriend–not to mention a sleazy stalker–thrown into the mix, Aggie and Nely suddenly find they’re not just walking in each other’s shoes … they’re running!

Audible Subscription Giveaway

2019 was a year of drastic change for me and my family. Long story short, we moved from Orange County to the So Cal wine country. I finished the fourth Dori O. paranormal mystery, narrated Lost in Whispers, and started a cozy mystery inspired by some of you who asked if I’d ever go back to writing romantic comedies. Now I just have to polish ’em up and publish! (Trust me, I’m working on it.)

Also, a new career has opened up to me as an audiobook narrator and producer and voice artist. With very little formal training and a day before the deadline, I  auditioned for and finaled in the SOVAS Audition Spotlight. A month later, my fellow authors Louella Nelson and Deb McCaskey commissioned me to produce and narrate their Audible titles! As soon as they are available, I’ll let you know.

To celebrate, I’m taking part in an Audible Subscription Giveaway. If you’re new to audiobooks and want to try them, enter the giveaway for a three-month subscription to Audible. I’ve been an Audible subscriber for five years and I listen to my favorite authors and narrators while knitting, walking, gardening, cleaning, driving or savoring a hot coffee in my back patio.

If you’re an Audible subscriber, please share this with your friends. It is open to everyone, and you don’t have to buy my audiobooks to enter!

I’ll be announcing the release of my new projects. You can update your newsletter subscription to receive all the news, only releases or if you prefer, you can follow me on the socials (as my 14-year-old son says).

By the way, has anyone read Simone St. James’ new paranormal thriller, The Sun Down Motel? I can’t wait! I once got creeped out reading her novel, The Haunting of Maddy Clare, in broad daylight at The CAMP in Costa Mesa!

Keep it spooky.
