Actor, writer and award-winning audiobook narrator Scott Brick certainly knows how to tell a story, in a way that keeps top publishers, best-selling and award-winning authors, critics and the public at large begging for more. Hailed by Audible in 2012 as their most prolific narrator, Brick has narrated over 800 audiobooks, including titles such as: In Cold Blood, Atlas Shrugged, The Bourne Trilogy, Mystic River, Moneyball and Helter Skelter. A popular choice with high profile authors including Nelson DeMille, Janet Evanovich, Clive Cussler, Brad Meltzer, Harlan Coben, David Baldacci and Gregg Hurwitz, just to name a few, Brick continues to weave magic into every story he touches.
Early on in his career, AudioFile Magazine proclaimed Brick a “Golden Voice,” a reputation solidified by a November 2004 article on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Publishers Weekly then honored Brick as Narrator of the Year in both 2007 and 2011. To date, he has won over 50 Earphone Awards, five Audie Awards, and a Grammy nomination for the multi-cast recording of The Mark of Zorro (2011).
Lauded by critics for his stage work, Brick spent ten years with the LA-based traveling Shakespeare troupe, Will & Company, appearing in productions of Cyrano, Hamlet, Macbeth and many others, and went on to appear in films such as Hit Parade, written and directed by comic book writer and co-Ben 10 creator, Joe Casey.
During this time, Brick continued writing. Having written hundreds of articles in a variety of genre publications such as Wizard Magazine, ToyFare, Comics Buyer’s Guide and Creative Screenwriting, Brick was hired by Morgan Freeman and Revelations Entertainment in 2000 to write the screen adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama, with David Fincher attached to direct. In 2005, he collaborated with author Orsen Scott Card to adapt a collection of the author’s short stories for the stage in a production titled (and printed in hardcover as) Posing As People. Most recently, Brick has written a short story for Blizzard Entertainment after becoming the voice of their wildly popular World Of Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft videogame series audiobooks.
Born to make a killer first impression, Brick’s debut novel, INSIGHT, is bound to leave people gasping for more from this innovative writer who is finally telling his own story.
