CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION:
Sea of Ice by John Cressman
Welcome to the home of narrator and producer J.S. Arquin
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. But my love affair with books continues unabated. As a narrator, I have breathed life into hundreds of stories, transforming characters into close friends who keep the listener company as they go about their daily lives.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, and let's talk about how we can make your audiobook sing.
I love to learn, and continue to study my craft extensively. I've worked with such notable audiobook coaches as Sean Pratt, Helen Lloyd, Johnny Heller, PJ Ochlan, and Andi Arndt. I love languages and accents, and I'm always happy to tackle new ones. I speak fluent Greek, and passable Spanish and German. Accents I've done in the past include: New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Texas, Georgia, UK RP, London, Birmingham, Scottish, Irish, German, Danish, Norwegian, French, Spanish, Mexican, Greek, Russian, Caribbean, Balkan, Italian, and Indian.
My professional home studio is fully isolated, remote-ready, and whisper quiet.
Gear and specs:
- -70 db noise floor
- AT 4040 microphone
- Scarlett 2i2 interface
- Reaper DAW / IZotope Rx8

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.
