STUART GAUFFI
Snow Audio Book Narrator/Producer

Stuart first began exercising his fascination with vocal performance at a very young age, steeped in performances of the golden age of Mel Blanc, June Foray and dozens of other virtuosos of the radio, early television, film, and cartoon worlds. The result was much parental head-shaking, with an ever-increasing number of odd sounds emanating from those young vocal cords. What's followed has been a life of performance on stage, radio, industrial film, and various digital media including dozens of audiobooks.

If you like listening to a good story (or even just the occasional ripping good yarn), Stuart would love to tell you one.

JEFFREY HAYES
Cover Artist Snow Series 2

JEFFREY RAY HAYES is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer living in the Austin area of Central Texas. He began his career doing pen and ink art and magazine layout work for Austin-based table-top gaming companies. Jeff also spent time working as a commercial artist and display designer for a Texas-based grocery company in the 1980s until he made a career change. He has served for 30 years as a police officer until his retirement in 2019 as an assistant police chief. During that time, he never stopped working as a freelance artist and formed Plasmafire Graphics, LLC.

Jeff has worked on a number of television / web-based productions and independent films in the United States and United Kingdom as a graphic artist, creating promotional materials and key art for entertainment industry marketing. His work has also extended to book cover illustration, where he has completed over 200 pieces that have graced the covers of books and magazines.

Being only self-taught in illustration and graphic design, he is currently attending the Gemini School of Visual Arts to attain that long-overdue Visual Arts and Communications Degree. The degree will consume much of his time from 2020-2024, but he looks forward to taking on freelance work again when the course of training is done.

“I have had the pleasure to work with many talented authors, directors, actors and radio, television and film producers. I value my working relationships and the many collaborative opportunities I have experienced working with such talented people. I enjoy trying to interpret the characters, locations, plots and ideas that producers, directors and writers have etched in their mind’s eye. I love the collaborative process and watching their faces light up when I have successfully captured that image in an illustration. I find just as much enjoyment when fans of a particular book, television or film get excited about seeing their heroes, or villains in some cases, come to life visually.” – Jeff Hayes
