About the Author

Mary Kubica is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Good Girl and Pretty Baby. She holds a BA from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in history and American literature. She lives outside of Chicago with her family and enjoys photography, gardening, and caring for the animals at a local shelter.



Original bio sent from Cassandra:

Cassandra Campbell began doing voice overs as the voice for Calvin Klein's Italian commercials. This was followed by commercial and documentary recording in both English and Italian. She has recorded many audiobooks and has received several AudioFile Earphones Awards as well as an Audie(R) Award nomination. As an actress and director, she has worked at the Public, the Mint, the Berkshire Theatre Festival, Stagewest, Theatreworks, the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival, Millmountain Theatre, the National Shakespeare Company, and the New York Fringe Festival.



Tom Taylorson is an Earphones Award-winning narrator and Chicago-based actor with over a decade of stage experience. In that time he also built a voice-over career and now primarily works as a voice actor. Tom is an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College Chicago, teaching voice-over for interactive media.



Jorjeana Marie has worked extensively as an actress, comedian, writer, and audiobook narrator. Her narrations have earned her several Earphones Awards. She has performed in hundreds of commercials and starred in the pilot Listen to Grandpa, Andy Ling with Elliott Gould. She is a stand-up comic who has opened for Richard Lewis, Louie Anderson, and Kathleen Madigan. Her video game credits include Final Fantasy, Crackdown 2, and Star Guardians. She loves reading so much it gets her into trouble.

Review

A hypnotic psychological thriller...[Pretty Baby] builds to a stunning climax involving revelations you won't see coming.

-- "People"

A superb psychological thriller...[with] a stunning conclusion.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

As bits and pieces of Willow's story are revealed, the other characters keep the story moving forward toward what the reader knows will be disastrous results...The story is almost hypnotic and anything but predictable...This book will give insomniacs a compelling reason to sit up all night.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

As the perspective shifts...readers see Heidi's interest in Willow's baby intensify and senses family tragedy on the way. And yet, the conclusion is a genuine surprise.

-- "Booklist"

Cassandra Campbell, Tom Taylorson, and Jorjeana Marie voice the three characters and bring out gentle Heidi's need for another child, Chris's self-centered disconnectedness, and Willow's misery and need for love. Their varied performances emphasize the three very different worlds these characters inhabit and add dimension to the story.

-- "Library Journal (audio review)"

Suspense done well.

-- "New York Magazine"

The fast-paced final chapters show us how easily we all ignore hidden infections in favor of surface wounds, and why 'the ones you never hear about' may carry the deepest secrets.

-- "NPR"

Those who appreciate character-driven explorations of human emotion will enjoy Kubica's sophomore effort. The major characters are each deep in the midst of their own psychological crises based on past events...The story will stir readers.

-- "Library Journal"

Thrilling and illuminating...[Pretty Baby] raises the ante on the genre and announces the welcome second coming of a talent well worth watching.

-- "Los Angeles Times" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
