Thanks Jessica for sharing this! We're creating a place readers can come and catch quick listens to their favorite authors, or authors they've not yet heard of. We're going to list their self-described genres (to better whittle them down to a more accurate representation of the piece), and their influences to make choosing from what we plan to make a many-hundreds' long Author Index easier to choose from.
