When she's not working, you'll inevitably find her listening to an audiobook while cooking, walking, making lace, or taking photo- graphs. She was honored to be the 2016 Audio Publishers Association's Audiobook Blogger of the Year. Look for her "Take 5 with Candace" column on AudioFile's blog: Randy O'Brien Randy O'Brien (Tim O'Brien profile, page 50) has been a reviewer for AudioFile since 2003.

Tom Walken Contributing Editor Tom Walken ("Learning By Ear," page 56) began writing reviews for AudioFile in the mid- 1990s while he was still practicing clinical psychology. His "Learning By Ear" column started a short time later. He says the many audios he's heard on personal growth and business topics have kept him current on how people can make their lives better. From his adopted home in Raleigh, NC, the Baltimore native now works with entrepreneurs, evaluates executive candidates, and spends his free time cooking, playing music, and enjoying his friends and family. 6 n AudioFile/ Josephine Reed photo by John Boal Tom Walken Candace Levy Randy O'Brien Jo Reed Aurelia Scott
