It started as a simple suggestion: "I think your detective story would make a fun audio show."
And I remember saying, "Yeah, that would be fun, but I'm not sure how I could pull it off."
But I went back, and I looked it over, and with a few adjustments, Mickie McKinney: The Absent Answers was brought to life.
For the next year, I worked on writing, recording and editing the various episodes. And between the handful of us, we managed to get out a dozen stories. But as time went on, I had to deal with various changes that occurred within Faux Fiction Audio.
My voice actors and editors got older, graduated or got better paying jobs. One by one, they went off to live their own lives.
I started working on other projects, recorded and edited various audiobooks for different clients, made a few more friends that taught me new aspects of the business.
I wrote other books, but I always kept circling back to Mickie, the book that started it all. The story that I "wasn't sure I could pull off" became the reason I now am who I am.
So, here's what's going to happen. I'm going to finish Mickie's story. And while I'm finishing his series, I'm going to write a few others as well.
Until one day the question won't be, "can I do this?", but "how far can I take this?"
So that's what I'm going to find out. I'm going to write, and direct and create new adventures for you to enjoy. If you would like, you can read, listen and come along for the ride. I hope you enjoy this adventure as much as I do.
Sincerely, R.L. Fink
