As this is the season for thankfulness I want to give a shout-out to everyone who has helped with "Mickie McKinney: Boy Detective" so far. My wonderfully talented actors: Lucas Guerrero, Violet Fink, Leann Labra, C.J. LongHammer, Hannah Edelson, Brandon Cieslak, Sam Reiter, Ruthie Hanson, Shaina Shaina Shaina and Nathan Vl. My awesome team of editors, graphic artists and script readers : Karl Fink, Dylan Martinez, Kelly Jensvold, Kaitlin Elizabeth and Nicholas Johnson. I've said this before but I'll say it again: this podcast wouldn't be half as good without your help.
And last but not least, my friend and fellow producer Lyndsey Werner, who has helped with writing, recruiting, directing and voice acting.
You know, it's interesting, but Lyndsey is one of the reasons Mickie McKinney is out today. You see, about three, almost four years ago now, Lyndsey introduced me to an audio show produced by Decoder Ring Theatre, written/directed by the very talented and tireless, Gregg Taylor. And while I was entranced and enchanted by the stories of adventure, danger and witty banter, the thing that caught my imagination was the idea of a group of talented artists; writers, actors and friends, working together to create something fun that everyone could enjoy. A family, not by blood, but through a shared experience, who could laugh and joke while writing or recording dialogue together.
And so Faux Fiction Audio was born, because the intention was, even though we were weren't really family, everyone who became a part of the show; actor, writer, editor, musician, was a faux sister, or a faux brother, all working together to make something fun that anyone could enjoy. We've come a long way guys, and I'm proud of each and every one of you. I can't tell you how much it means to me to have so many talented people willing to help me bring my stories to life, and I hope you're having as much fun as I am.
So Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and in case you were wondering, episode 9, Attack of the Amphibians will be out in December, so hang on to your hats, because it's going to be a lot of fun :)
Sincerely, Ruby Fink, aka, The Great and Powerful Ruby ;)
P.S. Oh and Gregg Taylor? In case you're reading this, thank you for inspiring me. Happy Thanksgiving, sir :)
