6 Audiobook Narrator Interviews

Have you read my series of audiobook narrator interviews? If you haven’t, then here are the links below. I’ve found the process of getting my books into audio format a fascinating undertaking, and being a former reporter (which means I’m nosy), I had questions. Lots of questions. Most readers have no idea what the production process involves or what it’s like to be a narrator and inquiring minds want to know! If you’ve ever wondered about the process, then the below interviews will provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of audiobooks.

- Interview with Dark Before Dawn narrator Cassandra Morris. Among her credits, Cassandra has narrated books in the Gossip Girl series, Pretty Little Liars series, Disney Fairies series (as Tinkerbell), The Magic School Bus series, Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew series, The Clique series, and Ivy and Bean series.

- Interview with Twenty-Five Years Ago Today narrator Erin Moon. Erin has been seen on Law and Order: SVU and is also an award winning audio books narrator recording over 50 novels for Audible.com, Recorded Books, Brick Shop Audio and Hachette.

They have recorded hundreds of audiobooks that are currently available on audible.com, amazon.com, recordedbooks.com, clipper audio and in libraries nation wide.

  1. Thanks for putting those all together. I have been listening to audiobooks for a while now and don’t always think of what actually goes into creating them. The behind-the-scenes look is very interesting!

  2. Thanks for coming by, Brinda! Glad you enjoyed the interviews. I am amazed at how talented these narrators are – it’s like listening to a movie without the visuals. It was fascinating for me to learn how they got into narrating and what happens behind the scenes once I send them the manuscript.

  3. Great interview, Stacy. I just got my proof to review of Heaven is for Heroes audio book. It’s so exciting listening to it in the spoken voice. Erin Mallon with Brickhouse Productions narrated for me and I was absolutely floored by her talent.

    You all have my utmost respect for the magic you perform in bringing our characters to life. It means more than you know!

  4. Thanks for coming by, PJ! That is exciting about your audiobook. I’ve heard Erin Mallon and she is wonderful.

    Narrators have my respect also – I just finished listening to the final cut of my reality show mystery Sink or Swim and Funda Duval does a fantastic job. She makes my character Cassidy seem very sympathetic, and she has all these nice touches like the flaky voice she does for a minor character in the book, one of Cassidy’s diehard fans. Narrators can truly add a whole other dimension to our books. It’s really neat to hear the inflections they put on different lines or the voices they envision for different characters. It’s a very creative collaboration between author and narrator.
