Each June, audiophiles from around the country celebrate all things audiobook. Since we love to listen and review audiobooks here at That’s What I’m Talking About, we are participating in our own Audiobook celebration.
What would an audiobook be without a narrator? As part of Audiobook Month, we are spotlighting various narrators so you can learn a bit more about who they are and what they do.
Today we shine the spotlight on:
Tell us how long have you been narrating books?
What genres do you cover? Do you have a favorite?
Business, self-development, cozy mysteries, romance, fantasy, kids, … I like them all! It’s always fun to learn about new things, so the non-fiction books are nice to do along with the fiction. But I do love creating characters for the fiction titles. It lets me get back to my theatre training.
Do you do any other voice work or acting?
I’ve done some voice over work for up and coming animators, theatres, and a few training videos.
What is your favorite job to date?
Oh my goodness…. that is too hard to say. I’ve had such great working relationships with many authors and publishers that I can’t pick just one!
How do prepare for a job? Does the preparation depend on the genre or type of book?
For every book, I read it all the way through and take notes on the characters, location, dialects, etc. to make sure I have everything I need to fully develop the characters. When possible, I reach out and get additional information from the authors.
If you could narrate any book or work with any author past or present, what would you choose? Why?
“The Velveteen Rabbit” is my favorite book of all time. I’ve adored it since I was a child. I still go through all the feels when I read or listen to it. It’s everything I want in a book.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I’ve just started working on the “Wisteria Witches Mysteries” by Angela Pepper, and will be continuing on Lindzee Armstrong’s “No Match for Love” series, and Kirsten Osbourn’s “At the Altar” series.
