Summary of The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain by Dr. Steven Gundry

Whether reading, writing, narrating, or singing, I love words and stories. I especially enjoy telling stories and am truly passionate about narrating audiobooks! When I was a child I used to record my own stories and songs and have consistently been involved in performing in some fashion most of my life - acting or singing onstage, in my studio as a narrator and around the house or in the car reading or singing with my children. I have a Bachelor of Arts with honors in English with honors and can be another set of eyes to review your work. I am reliable, have a strong work ethic and am very driven to do my best on each project. As a listener of audiobooks, I understand how important a quality narrator is to engage the listener, while letting the words of the author come through. My voice has been called authentic, versatile, soothing, subtle, intelligent and profound.

REVIEWS FROM AUDIBLE LISTENERS "Krista Nicely is a fabulous narrator and voice artist. She does an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart she puts into her work as she captures the characters emotions and projects them into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to." "The variety she creates in the voices are outstanding and truly make the audio book exciting to listen to." "Krista Nicely did a great job with the story. She added spark, she did distinct voices for each character and differentiated older and younger voices as well. The narrator enhanced an already great story." "The narrator did an excellent job of making this a listening pleasure." "Great Narrator!!!...I was so relaxed listening to the narrator." "A lovely presentation...The is well narrated and illustrated in a clear and audible voice." "Her interpretation is not too different from what I heard in my head when I read the book, and that doesn't always happen when I listen to audiobooks after having read them.” "The narration was clearly done professionally." AUTHOR TESTIMONIALS "Krista is a joy to work with. She’ll go out of her way to please you, is serious about deadlines, and best of all, her recordings are top-notch." ~ W.K. Greyling "Whispers in the Mist" was one of those spur-of-the-moment stories I wrote in a couple of days, while contemplating how to wrap up a completely different project. So, when I put it up for auditions, I was surprised how many excellent offerings I received. It was a tough choice, but, in the end Krista won the project. Her approach, her delivery - subtle, intelligent, profound - lent the project the depth and emotion it definitely needed and helped pack a lot of layers into a very short recording. ~ Maria K. "Krista surpassed my expectations of a narrator. She was able to embody not just the voice of my characters but the underlying, unsaid tone of my writing. I would highly recommend Krista for any project." ~ JB Havens " I couldn't wish for a better Narrator or production... You are truly a perfectionist! Thank you so much." ~ Bernard Levine
