In addition to writing his own books, J.T. McDaniel has become a popular audiobook narrator. The first dozen are linked on this page. He usually has at least two others at various stages of production.

Smith
Stewart Giles

This is the book that started it all. Introduces Jason Smith, the perpetually annoying DS Thompson, their boss, DI Chalmers, and Smith’s favourite partner, DC Erica Whitton. It’s up to Smith to deal with a suicide that may be a murder, and an open-and-shut murder that isn’t at all what it seems.

The Detective Sergeant Jason Smith Series

Stewart Giles’ inventive series chronicles the adventures of York Police Detective Sergeant Jason Smith. An Australian, transplanted to England in his teens, Smith constantly finds himself involved in bizarre cases, having to deal with international criminals, serial killers, psychos, and his own personality quirks. A wonderful series.

Boomerang
Stewart Giles

The second book in the series pits DS Smith against a cunning serial killer who seems to have a personal vendetta against the detective. Smith finds romance with the widow of an old friend from Australia, and the tension escalates when Whitton is abducted.

Ladybird
Stewart Giles

The third DS Smith mystery has Smith searching for another serial killer. This strange killer preys on families, killing the sons, and then the fathers, and leaves a sprinkling of dead ladybird beetles with each new corpse. Suspicion falls on a beautiful entomologist who seems curiously fixated on Smith.

Occam’s Razor
Stewart Giles

DS Jason Smith returns in the fourth installment of Stewart Giles’ thrilling series. The on-field murder of a York goal tender kicks off this unusual tale. Even more than usual, Smith is forced to overcome a string of obstacles, most of them caused by government agents. Then the murders get personal.

Reasons NOT to buy a Sugar Glider
Diamond Nester

A very short, and very basic book on the care of these delightful little marsupials. The author loves sugar gliders, and has written this book to both encourage potential owners willing to take the time and effort needed to socialize them and, perhaps, to discourage those who may not realize just how much care is required, or just how long a commitment a new owner may be making.

Bela Lugosi in Person
Bill Kaffenberger & Gary D. Rhodes

Other Lugosi biographies concentrate on his film career. This touches on the movies, but its main purpose is to provide the most complete history of Lugosi’s many personal appearances and stage performances. From his starring Broadway role in Dracula, to summer stock, vaudeville, and night club appearances, author’s Rhodes and Kaffenberger have dug deep to chronicle it all.

No Traveler Returns
The Lost Years of Bela Lugosi
Gary D. Rhodes & Bill Kaffenberger

Rhodes and Kaffenberger’s in depth biographical research on Bela Lugosi continues with this wonderfully detailed work, which covers the actor’s working life from about 1946 until his death.

The Sixth Victim & Other Plays
J.T. McDaniel

Contains five one-act plays: The Sixth Victim; To Kill a King; Burying Dad; It’s the Computer’s Fault; and Sunday Afternoon, read by a number of prominent central Ohio actors, including the author. The audiobook provides an excellent way for theatres considering producing any of these plays to hear them performed, rather than trying to make a decision from a printed script.

Bacalao
J.T. McDaniel

Bacalao remains my most popular novel. Unusually, I did not narrate the audiobook, which is read by Dennis St. John, who did a wonderful job with it. If you don’t have an Audible subscription this, or any of the other fine audiobooks on this page, would be a great place to start.
