How on earth did you get into narrating audiobooks?
As I always say, I sort of fell into it. I had been struggling, trying to secure myself a place in the world of voice over when a director friend of mine introduced me to the world of audiobooks. It was a fantastic fit! As an artist, I blossomed in audiobooks. The next thing I knew, I had a wonderful career as a narrator! It wasn’t glamorous or romantic but it sure is great.
What do you do when you are not narrating?
I guess this is the part where I lie and say in my off time I scale mountains and enjoy white water rafting? Naahhhh, I’m just your average gal. I’m a mom of two so, in my “off” time I’m chasing a toddlers and searching for a nap. It’s pretty awesome.
How do you stop yourself from laughing or crying at some of the things authors write?
I don’t stop myself. I read through the tears and the laughs lingering in the back of my voice. I just let it flow.
