I [heart] Davids · A Mystery, Read by Simon Prebble?

A Mystery, Read by Simon Prebble?

So, this is weird and strange and all coinkydental.

On March 18th, I posted a blog about Simon Prebble. I attempted to find contact information online, but was not successful. He has no home page, and he’s not obviously reachable through any of the audio book companies that he’s worked for. I was sad, because I wanted to say Hello.

Then I had a genius idea – I had all his old letters, so I could try sending a card to his old address. Yes, the address is over 10 years old, but heck, you never know, do you? So I wrote out a nice card and placed it in the mail on March 27th, a Tuesday.

I kept expecting it to be returned in the mail, but it had not been returned by Friday so I was getting hopeful. Then, on Monday, April 2nd, I got an anonymous post on my blog that just said

Newton’s Cradle…it’s true

I was ecstatic!! He got my card! He followed the link I included! He answered my Wikiality question! Sure, it was an anonymous post, but the timing, the answered question: it was obviously him.

You might imagine my disappointment/confusion/puzzlement then, when on April 4th I received my letter, returned in the mail.
Who was that mystery poster?

    I’ll go get the magnifying glass; you get the fingerprint powder.

    If you want to hide in a big city, get listed in the phone book! I am easy to find.
    Hello Jeni Q..I’ve not forgotten you
    (or my gentle mocking of your Leonard Cohen)
    One always hopes to be seated next to someone so
    charming and bright..and so pretty!
    Things seem to have worked out well for you..
    and indeed for me. Marriage came late but It
    is the best…soon off to live in Paris.
    Take good care of yourself……
    love Simon

    I, also have tried to contact Simon Prebble. I listen and own all the audiobooks he has narrated for the Stephanie Laurens Cynster series. lurens has written three more novels which are on audio-ABRIDGED AND WITHOUT PREBBLE as narrator! I have contacted Stephanie Laurens, Recorded books, the publisher and who I thought was Mr. Prebble’s agent with no success. All I want to know is if he will continue to narrate the novels. Do you have information on how to write to him? Thank you.

    Hi Bonnie,
    I don’t have a way to contact Simon, unfortunately. But I know how disappointing it can be to not have someone you enjoy read your book. Best of luck!
