Audiobooks are a growing category in children’s literature and are increasingly available as an option for self-published authors. Author Theresa Villareal will walk us through the process of turning her self-published debut middle grade book into an audiobook available for download on Amazon's KDP platform.

Drawing inspiration from renowned authors like C.S. Lewis, Madeleine L'Engle, and J.R.R. Tolkien, Theresa crafts captivating tales for readers. Holding a degree in marketing and sales from the University of Houston Bauer School of Business, she skillfully combines her credentials and storytelling prowess to create a lasting legacy for her children.
