Rochelle Marie O’Gorman has been a professional writer for her entire adult life. After learning, very quickly, that news reporting was not for her, she began work as a film critic. O’Gorman has also reviewed television, theater, and print books, as well as writing general feature stories, before turning to audiobooks full time. The first syndicated audiobook reviewer in the United States, her reviews can be read in various newspapers around the country and she was awarded an Audie by the Audio Publishers Association for her work in spreading the word about audiobooks. She currently works reviewing audiobooks and writing essays. O’Gorman lives in the hayloft of an old barn with her lovely teenage daughter and a foul tempered parrot.
