Ross Ballard is being called 'the king of southern voiced audiobooks'. From his new studio high up on Rouse Mountain in Morgan County, WV, Ross is turning out a string of wonderfully voiced audio books each created with a single goal in mind: 'give memorable voice and depth to the characters created by great writers.' Music from the best singer/songwriters and musicians in the in Mid Atlantic area add their special emotions and transitions to the mix.
Our audiobooks are slow cooked for sweet goodness.
