“I have admired my grandfather for years and am passionate about words and stories.  Audiobooks have played an important role in my life,” says Stokes, “Everything that I have today, I have because Bill believed in me when others didn’t. He gave me a chance to make my life better. If it wasn’t for him, I am not sure where I would be right now. That’s why I have been working hard to do something for him, specifically bringing his books back to life.” –Paul Stokes about his grandfather, Bill Stokes
