Time Winders, Winders: A long Distance, Time Travel Romance Novel
This is a romance novel with twist: its heroine is a time-traveling cop hunting for illegal “jumpers.” Her love interest is a sedentary gentleman of advanced years, still yearning for adventure. How the two team up to sweep up the bad guys makes for interesting reading and even more interesting narration. The book’s author, Tanya Park put it this way: “Wayne Hughes did the audible version of my book, Time Winders. He accurately captured the voice of an elderly narrator, and struck just the proper tone. He was open to suggestions and corrections, and all communication with him was a pleasure. He also did reasonably accurate regional accents when required, much to my delight. I would definitely work with Mr. Hughes again.”

His adventure includes a mano-y-mano with Billy the Kid, a long conversation with Lew Wallace, the author of Ben Hur and a plethora of bad guys on both sides of the border. The book’s author, Dwight Hood Roberts said that “Wayne Hughes and I formed a strong professional bond as he narrated this book. I grew to rely on him as the many of many voices and dialects and a no-nonsense editor and fact-checker. I’m working on my next book and he’ll definitely be my voice again.”
