In 1989, Jim Weiss set out on a mission: to record the greatest stories he knew from world literature and history, and inspire families -- especially young listeners -- with a passionate love of the original classics. In the three decades since then, Jim's narration voice and seemingly numberless character voices have formed foundational entertainment and education for millions of listeners around the world. Winning hundreds of awards, Jim's recordings range on the literary side from fairy tales through stories from Shakespeare, Dickens and Conan Doyle, while his history recordings bring to vivid life major historical events and personalities from the ancient world through the twentieth century. The inspiration for all this began early, with parents and grandparents who told stories and read aloud to him, skills which Jim joyously acquired, and which led him to a degree in Communications and Speech from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Later, his wife, Randy, earned her own national awards as a teacher and counselor, and their shared passion for learning led to forming their company in 1989, long before the explosion of spoken word recordings made this a sensible decision. The recordings began winning listeners and national awards from the first. A few years ago, the Weiss's licensed their recordings and business operations to Well-Trained Mind Press, which has successfully introduced Jim's work into still more markets, while Jim continues to write, record, teach and perform.

Crystal Cregge is a Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and Animator who graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University. She originally grew up with dreams of being a comic book artist but found her love of telling stories through imagery could be expressed in many mediums. Her work has ranged from children's books, audiobooks, commercials, tv shows, magazines and postcards and even Virtual Reality. No matter the medium, she has worked with many notable clients to help bring their ideas to life. In the rare moment when she isn't making art, she can be found curled up with a good book and a great cup of coffee.
