A classically trained actor, Frank Muller was better known for his audiobook narration. Muller was the first narrator for the Recorded Books company, and he became the narrator of choice for such authors as Stephen King, Anne Rice, John Grisham, and Elmore Leonard. Muller even built a home studio so he could record for publishers on both coasts. The narrator for books by over 100 authors and the winner of numerous awards, he earned an AudioFile Lifetime Achievement Award in 1999. He discussed his career in an interview with Audiobooks Today. That career was cut short when Muller suffered severe head trauma after a motorcycle accident in 2001. Stephen King, who also experienced a life-threatening accident, organized a benefit for Muller in 2002 with Pat Conroy, John Grisham, and Peter Straub. The audiobook world lost a great narrator when Muller died in 2008 at the age of 57.
