About

When I was three, I would take as many books as I could carry to the nearest adult, and demand they read them all to me. When they finished, I’d fetch another stack.

 

Since then, I’ve become a classically trained actor and have lived and performed around the world in a professional career spanning decades. My studied technique with characters and facility with accents have served me well as a full-time narrator, as I have breathed life into hundreds of audiobooks and been a finalist for several industry awards. My skills have made me a listener favorite in the exciting realms of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and LitRPG. while working with some of the top selling authors and publishers in the world.

 

I guess you could say I’m paying all those Green Eggs and Ham forward.

At Arquin Audiobooks I work closely with authors and publishers to bring their vision to life. Drop me a line at js@arquinaudiobooks.com, and let's talk about how we can make your audiobook sing.

Indie Authors

Though I work with many fine publishers, I have a particular connection with indie authors.

 

The reason is simple: I'm an indie author myself.

 

So I understand the challenges of being an indie author in today's world. Handling all the writing, publishing, and marketing yourself can be overwhelming. Turning your work into audiobooks can seem like a lot to learn and you've already got ten million things on your plate. I get it. Boy howdy, I really, really get it.  

Never fear. I'm here to help. 

I will walk you through the process of turning your work into sparkling audiobooks. I'm happy to help you figure out which distribution option is right for you. I will handle the narration, editing, and proofing so all you have to do is sit back and wait for your audiobook to arrive. When your book goes live, I will trumpet the news on all of my social media.

Looking for dual narration? I've got you covered there too. 

I partner with a pool of hand-picked, fabulous narrators on dual narration projects. I will gladly help you find the perfect complementary voice to make your book come alive.

Have more questions? I'd love to answer them.
