Nick McDonell was born in 1984 in New York City. William Dufris began his audio career doing radio plays, audiobooks, film/animation dubbing, and language tapes in London, where he lived for thirteen years. While there, he had the honor of sharing the microphone in a number of BBC Radio plays with Kathleen Turner, Sharon Gless, Stockard Channing, and Helena Bonham-Carter. These experiences led him to cofound two audio production companies: The Story Circle Ltd. and Mind's Eye Productions. He has also acted on stage and television in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. William is the original voice of Bob (and Farmer Pickles/Mr. Beasley/Mr. Sabatini) in the popular children's show Bob the Builder for the United States and Canada (Series 1–9). He produces, directs, acts and engineers for his audio theatre company, Rocky Coast Radio Theatre. He has been nominated nine times as a finalist for the APA's prestigious Audie Award and has garnered twenty-one Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which also named him one of the Best Voices at the End of the Century, as well as one of the Best Voices of the Year in 2008 and 2009.From AudioFile:
In flashbacks and flash forwards we follow a young journalist into Bangkok bars as he searches for a story on illicit drugs, all the while remembering his dysfunctional family. This amateurish book with one-dimensional characters and a wafer-thin plot should have stayed in the typewriter. Salvation comes in the form of a gifted narrator who creates personalities to make the characters interesting. Since the author provides scant information about his principals, William Dufris takes charge and creates colorful individuals we can imagine and remember. His dramatic parts range from credible Asian prostitutes stoned on Ecstasy to a New York cab driver speaking Pakistani English. Most listeners will conclude that Dufriss healing intervention has resuscitated this pulp fiction on life support. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
