"I don't want to be the star of your audiobook. I want to make YOUR VOICE come through." Sara has a versatility with language and dialects and the ability to translate many years of professional acting onstage to the medium of the audiobook. While studying for her Master of Fine Arts degree at The University of Louisville, Sara passed the audition for and became a professional narrator at the studios of The Library of Congress/American Printing House for the Blind. Over the next three years she recorded over forty titles there. Sara left Louisville to pursue a professional acting career onstage which continues to this day. She has performed in over 100 professional regional theatre productions in roles written by Edward Albee, Tennessee Williams (a favorite of hers), William Shakespeare, Lillian Hellman, Samuel Beckett as well as contemporary comedies and dramas such as AUGUST:OSAGE COUNTY and OTHER DESERT CITIES. She has played the role of Maria Callas twice onstage in Terrance McNally's MASTER CLASS. Sara has studied acting and voice with Kristin Linklater and Tina Packer of Shakespeare and Company as well as with Rinda Frye at The University of Louisville. She has been affiliated with over 20 professional regional theatres in her career and has been named an ensemble member at The Hippodrome Theatre in Gainesville, FL where she currerntly makes her home, and at The Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers, FL. A recent review by Terry Teachout in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL(Friday, January 14, 2013) of Lillian Hellman's THE LITTLE FOXES had this to say about Sara's performance of Regina Giddens:Regina is so despicable that the key to making THE LITTLE FOXES work is to keep her awfulness under wraps for as long as possible. An exaggerated performance will sink the show, but Ms. Morsey is careful to carry herself in the genteel manner of a Southern lady right up to the moment when she unsheathes her razor and starts slashing. You'll definitely believe her when she tells Horace, her sickly husband, that I hope you die soon. I'm waiting for you to die. In the past few years Sara has been headhunted to record several audiobooks: THE PRINCESS AND HER GARDEN (available on Amazon) REFLECTIONS ON EQUESTRIAN ART and SCHOOL OF HORSEMANSHIP for Gold Leaf Farms. This led her back into the recording studio, to ACX and many titles to follow.

AUDIBLE APPROVED PRODUCER Member, Audio Publishers Association SARA MORSEY AUDIOBOOK REVIEWS from AudioFile Magazine, The Audiobook Reviewer and Audible LITERARY FICTION THE SANCTUM by Pamela King Cable I cannot recommend this audiobook enough! Listen to it AND hear it Audiobook Reviewer ABR August 2018, Audiobook Reviewer’s Choice Award Sara Morsey performs this audiobook genuinely. While she’s able to become each character, it is Neeley who she truly becomes and shines through everywhere. Her ability to project innocence and defiance as Neeley is amazing and strongly done.Told from a child’s viewpoint makes it all the more poignant.” MYSTERY THRILLER ACCOUNTABLE TO NONE by Ashley Fontainne “Her clear switch in characters made following the story easy. She played her voice like a fine instrument communicating the emotions and delivering a strong impact.” POST APOCALYPTIC SCIENCE FICTION IN A MIRROR CITY by Stevie O’Connor “This the story of Maja, a teenage girl, with a much older spirit than her real age, trapped inside the system of a decadent society...Sara Morsey did a beautiful narration and impersonation of Maja, along with the rest of the characters. The material is presented flawlessly by Sara Morsey. While supremely talented narrators like George Guidall and Dick Hill have the ability to put the listener in a different time and place I found Sara's performance did just that.” BIOGRAPHY SUBVERSIVE SOUTHERNER by Catherine Fosl “Narrator Sara Morsey's conversational style is ideal for this biography of Civil Rights activist Anne McCarty Braden.” AudioFile 2016 RELIGIOUS THOUGHT THE GREAT APPARITIONS OF MARY by Ingo Swann “Narration was peaceful and well suited to the subject. It was nice to hear a dignified narrator” AKASHIC RECORDS by Lois J. Wetzel “Sara Morsey provided an excellent reading of the book. Her voice is animated and expressive and easy to listen to. Sara does an excellent job of capturing the sense of the author. I hung on to every word of this book! I'm so glad I listened to this in an audio version so that I could really soak in the concepts that the author shared. Absolutely fascinating!”
