From Audiofile review of ‘The Lost Dresses of Italy’ by M. A. McLaughlin, April 24



A good audiobook narrator brings a story to life for a listener. If you're proud of your writing - hire a great narrator!

You need someone who is:

  • Trained as an actor - I have a degree in drama and experience working as a professional actor for stage, screen and radio.

  • Uses a high quality studio - I work from my broadcast quality studio.

  • Experienced - I've narrated more than 80 titles for clients including Penguin Random House, Dreamscape and Harper Collins, numerous production companies and directly for authors.

  • Highly rated by the industry - I've worked for the same clients for years, and am often cast in series of books

  • Highly rated by listeners - My narration consistently receives 5-star ratings and reviews - I have received over 2500 5* reviews on

All the samples below are from actual work - they're not demos. You can listen by genre or accent.

I’m the writer of the book Dishing The Dirt: The Hidden Lives of House Cleaners, and today I’ve been listening to your audio version of it. I wanted to email you direct, essentially to say, in capital letters to stress my gratitude, THANK YOU. I think you have done an amazing job, with such subtlety and sensitivity - and such compellingly accurate accents, too.

I’m absolutely thrilled with it!

Nick Duerden, Author, 'Dishing the Dirt'
