And I’m pleased to announce that my multi-award-winning medical thriller, A Cure for Deceit, has recently been released as an audiobook. Written by myself, it is narrated by professional voice actor Blair Seibert. It is available now on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Audiobooks are the rage right now, and they are the fastest growing segment in book publishing, according to Edison Research. Chris Lynch, co-chair of the Audio Publishers Association’s Research Committee and President & Publisher of Simon & Schuster Audio, says “Eight straight years of double-digit revenue growth is simply phenomenal. Even more encouraging are the continued upward trends in consumer listening behavior – both in how many titles they listen to per year and in their finding more time in their day to listen.”
The most popular audiobook genre today is Mysteries/Thrillers/Suspense. If you haven’t already read A Cure for Deceit, you may not have heard that it won the Silver Award in the thriller category of the 2020 Royal Palm Literary competition from the Florida Writers Association.
“The thriller opens with a powerful hook: a situation of life or death in a hospital. It creates fear in the reader, since every person could face the same medical emergency with his or her life in the hands of medical professionals.”
In addition, A Cure for Deceit also won the Bronze Award in the 2020 Readers Favorite Competition in the thriller genre.

Congratulations on the book!
Is Cure for Deceit set in Italy?
I am a devotee of Donna Leon’s Venetian detective series.
Hi Doris. Thank you so much! I, too, am a fan of Donna Leon’s books. The setting for A Cure for Deceit is San Francisco, but I’m considering my next thriller to be set in Italy.
You are an amazing author. I am so inspired by your writing and your success. I am proud to be one of your followers, both as a fellow travel blogger and a fellow Italy lover.
Thanks so much, Dolly. I appreciate your kind words and support. How are you? Any travel plans coming up?
