"Sporty, spirited and undaunted. A sparkle of youth within the glow of maturity." The name of my game is strength and persistence in everything I do. I started acting in Kindergarten and have never stopped. Narrating audiobooks allows me to flex that acting muscle every day. I particularly love the tension of a thriller, the intimacy of a memoir, and the educational aspect of nonfiction narration. My educational background in medical massage therapy and intensive anatomical studies, including the performance of human dissections, lends itself well to medical narration with anatomical and biological terminology. Finally, I am a passionate Masters CrossFit athlete. Nothing builds mental fortitude like tough physical training. I will go the distance with you. I will apply my skills and dedication to your audiobook with 100% intensity! Find me at https://www.facebook.com/MelissaKayBenson/ and www.mkbenson.com

MEMOIR: LONG WAY OUT by Nicole Waybright “The narrator was wonderful and easily transitioned to different voices and accents seamlessly, only adding to the authenticity of the story. To me, the narrator's voice became Brenda's voice.” ~Bravo Foxtrot/ Audible Listener Review ROMANCE: BOURBON STREET NIGHTS by Jack Caldwell “...the narrator’s voices and accents helped me keep the characters straight in my head (there were many.)” ~Penny Metzger/Audible Listener/Review ELYSIAN DREAMS by Jack Caldwell “I am happy with your performance. So much so, I hope you’re interested in doing the rest of Crescent City. Your handling of the romantic scenes has been perfect. I love what you’re doing with everyone. You’ve got Elizabeth’s snarky-ness down. Love the accents.” ~Author of Elysian Dreams Melissa Kay Benson, whose narration I already admired in the first volume, creates the same magic in this book. It is rare to hear so many different individual voices for the numerous characters, displaying accent, character, emotional nuances perfectly. Through the wonderful narration, I felt the events come alive and became even more emotionally involved in the lives of Elizabeth, Darcy and their friends in New Orleans. ~noagnes/Audible Listener Review RUIN & RENEWAL by Jack Caldwell In Production “I love cliffhangers but I truly hope that book 2 and 3 are released on Audible soon.” ~JMSaenz/Audible Listener Review (of Volume One)
