Dream Cast
Dream Cast By Author Sarah Williams
If The Brothers of Brigadier Station were being turned into a movie or television series, who should be cast as its characters?

Since The Brothers of Brigadier Station was actually inspired by them, I’d have to say the Hemsworth Brothers! Chris as Lachie and Liam as Darcy. These guys are not only amazing actors but about as Aussie as they come! Not to mention gorgeous!

Shailee Woodlea is the actress I would love to see play Meghan. I think she is an incredible actress who plays the quiet, shy type really well. Plus she and Liam would look so cute together.

Q&A With Author Sarah Williams
  1. What inspired your book? I have always loved Cowboy romances and after meeting another Australian author I decided to write one set in Australian. I was inspired to write about brothers after seeing a picture of Chris and Liam Hemsworth together and thinking how good they would look in jeans and an akubra, fighting over the same girl.
  2. Will you turn the rest of the series into audiobooks? Yes. Myles has already signed on to record the next two in September.
  3. How did you select your narrator? I happened to be attending a charity event for my kid’s school which Myles was being paid to attend. Myles Pollard is a very well known Australian actor. He was on the hit Australian TV show McLeod’s Daughters which was very similar to my books - set on a cattle property in the Outback. I got to meet him and asked if he would be interested. He said he was so a few days later he auditioned and I was incredibly impressed with what I heard. He really is the best choice for my Brigadier Station series.
  4. How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters? I am an Indie author without any staff so I project managed every detail. I even flew across the country so I could attend the recording sessions. I did need to direct Myles a little bit and correct a few words. On the whole he picked up the different characteristic and quirks very quickly and brought them to life on a whole-nother level.
  5. How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing? I sit down to write every morning as soon as the kids leave for school. After about two hours I take a break and do other things and usually come back for another session before the kids come home.
  6. Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you? I spend a lot of time driving so listening to audiobooks is fantastic. I go through at least one per week.
  7. If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles? Chris and Liam Hemsworth (two of the hottest guys in Australia in my opinion!) and Shaileen Woodley.
  8. What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors? Find a genre you like and read it extensively. Then do some workshops and courses. There is so much to learn and you don't know what you don't know!
  9. Do you have any tips for authors going through the process of turning their books into audiobooks? Make sure you read the script aloud before handing it over. I spotted a lot of mistakes like repetition and had to change them in the book. Making an audiobook is expensive so you need to get it right the first time.
  10. What’s next for you? I’m still writing! #4 in the Brigadier Station series will be out before Christmas. I’ll be back in the studio with Myles in September for more audiobook adaptation and I’m travelling to the USA for the Romance Writers of America conference in July. I also host a weekly podcast called Write with Love, so that keeps me pretty busy too.

My Last Chance by Weston Parker

Author: Weston Parker

Narrators: Lacy Laurel

Length: 7 minutes 35 minutes

Publisher: BrixBaxter Publishing

Released: June 17, 2019

Genre: Romance


I’ve made lots of mistakes.

But never one like this.

Back in high school, the girl next door spent a serendipitous night in my arms. But she wasn’t my type or really up to my level.

So I walked away not knowing her secret—our secret.

Years later, I’m still at the top of my game, ruling my own chunk of the world.

She walks into my office a different woman. Strong, sexy, and dead set on revenge.

I need to walk away again, but I can’t. She’s a different person, and yet, all the things that first had me taking a chance with her pull me back in—deeper this time.

She’s going to wreck my life, one bad decision at a time, and fuck me, I’m going to let her.

The fact that the little man who calls her mom acts like me stops me in my tracks. He even loves the same things I do.

Surely not.

No damn way I’ve been a selfish bastard and haven’t considered the possibilities of our night together so long ago, but it’s true.

He’s mine, and I’m instantly in love with both of them.

I need one more chance, and I’ll do anything to get it.

Narrator Bio


After going to school to obtain her BS and MBA, then starting a rather large and boisterous family, Lacy Laurel dove back into literature in order to relieve stress and have a little "me" time. Once finding audiobooks and falling in love with performance all over again, she set her sights on learning the art of telling an interesting and exciting story. Naturally being the passionate person that she is, she gravitated towards romance and erotica. Lacy thoroughly enjoys getting to bring stories of passion, love, loss, hunger, and angst to life.
