A native of East Providence, RI--Ron McLarty is a veteran actor, accomplished playwright, prolific audiobook narrator and acclaimed novelist. McLarty is also noted for his body of work as one of the country's leading audio book narrators having done over 100 titles including the narration of books authored by Stephen King, David Baldacci, Anne Rice, Richard Russo, Elmore Leonard, Ed McBain, and Scott Turow, among many others. He is the recipient of numerous Audie Awards. It was his collaboration with Stephen King that led to his emergence as a published novelist of national repute. Beginning with the early years of his career, McLarty's passion for writing led him to completing 10 novels, in addition to his plays but his efforts to interest a publishing house were unsuccessful. Several years ago he was able to persuade a small company into producing his 3rd novel, The Memory of Running, directly onto tape as an audio book. It is believed to be the first recorded audio book of an unpublished novel. Stephen King listened to it in 2002 and wrote his entire column "The Pop of King" about Memory calling it "the best book you can't read". This led to the publication of The Memory of Running in the USA and sixteen other countries around the world. In January 2007 his second novel, Traveler was published here in the UK (Traveller) as well as in Spain, France & Germany. His 3rd novel, Art In America was published in July 2008 to critical acclaim. His 4th novel, The Dropper, is published by Cemetery Dance Publications. The Memory of Running was chosen as the 2007 selection for the Reading Across Rhode Island program and nominated for Italy's most prestigious literary award, the Bancarella Prize.

[spoiler] I'm on the fence about what rating should I give to this title. Even though the score I put down is three stars, a 3.5 rating is more accurate. This alternate version is the first time I checked out this story, so I can't compare how it is to the original text. The first part of the story ...

Growing up, these stories about a pre-teen con artist in late 19th Century Utah were among my favorites. I remember stumbling on a box set at a Yard Sale after I'd read them from the Library a couple of times and just about wore out the set reading and re-reading them. Even then, I remember that I h...

1.24.19-I just finished my third read of SALEM'S LOT, this time via audiobook. The narrator, Ron McClarty worked well for me and I found this tale as satisfying as it ever was.

Somehow, one of my all-time favorite classic horror stories just didn’t stand up to time and my adult reading habits on this re-read. The scenes I most enjoyed as a teen were as creepily nightmarish as I remembered – [spoiler] Mike Ryerson digging Danny Glick’s grave, Danny at Mark’s window, the boy...

I'm not usually an audio book person, the one person reading with just changing voice doesn't distance characters enough for me, so when I saw this was an ensemble cast, I jumped all over it. I watched the show on Starz before listening to this and was pleasantly surprised at how closely the show...
