Demos for Primary Genres
Compelling. A professional voiceover talent since 1999, I now work almost exclusively in audiobooks. I prefer clean reads and specialize in performing cozy mysteries. Since I’m an Atlanta native, books set in the South and/or starring Southern characters are a natural fit for me. I love to laugh and have a great sense of humor, so I especially shine in comedic reads. I also have excelled in narrating sweet romances and legal thrillers, along with biography, history, self-development, and other Non-Fiction titles. I bring the emotion in the subtext into each word.
Committed. I’m an Audible Approved Producer who has produced and recorded over 50 titles in my custom-built studio. In addition to earning a BA in Broadcast Journalism, Magna Cum Laude, and an MS in Computer Information Systems, I have completed extensive specialized training in voiceover and audiobook narration technique, as well as digital audio production using Pro Tools software. I have taken beginning courses in Spanish, French, and German, and I study accents as needed. I have a director and editor for every project.
Communicator. I like to say, “You can’t spell Communications without Commins!” Even in my previous IT positions, my strong communications skills were highly praised. Not only did I manage large-scale systems and projects and keep everyone well-informed, but I frequently taught people how to use their computers and software. As a narrator, I love interpreting the words on the printed page and creating a pristine recording that allows today’s ultra busy people to take a mental vacation. In addition to writing articles on my blog and elsewhere, I’m also known for being a leading curator of information about the audiobook industry.
I’m not just another audiobook narrator.
