Born in Cape Town, South Africa, where I started my professional training, I have performed many different characters in theatre, TV, radio and film as an actress, singer and dancer and now as an audiobook narrator. From period to modern drama or comedy (e.g. Sheridan, Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward) I have a varied range to draw upon. My professional recording studio in the UK includes a Rode NT1A microphone. The voice gallery on my website www.melaniefraser-voice.com demonstrates more styles and corporate demos. I look forward to providing "vocal expression" to your book.

An Audible Approved Producer I also hold the BeeAudio Studio Certificate for Audiobook Narrators and am on the BeeAudio register of narrators. A FEW AUDIOBOOK TESTIMONIALS "Melanie has a great talent for bringing my main characters to life. Furthermore, her broad abilities gave my story depth with her interpretations of my secondary characters.  I found myself listening as if I didn’t already know what was going to happen!" Micki Miller Author 'A Scandalous Request' "Working with Melanie made my job very easy. There was communication throughout the process which meant I knew exactly when to expect material for checking. She enhanced the stories by adding sound effects, which listeners have loved. I've worked with a few other narrators and none have been more professional and talented as Melanie. It's been a real pleasure and I would happily have all my stories produced by her." Audrey Harrison, Author 'My Lord The Spy' and 'My Earl The Spy' “I found myself wanting to know what happened next (even though I know)...” James Philip, Author, ‘Winter's Pearl' Guy Winter Mystery Series "Melanie has a beautiful voice I could listen to all day. She breathed life into the story as the narrator and she brought each character to life. I don't think people appreciate how challenging a good audio book is or the actress playing all the roles, switching from one role to the other seamlessly, while also doing the narrating. I will be eternally grateful to Melanie for taking an interest in my book out of the many posted to ACX looking for producers. Archie Vincent, Author, ‘Crossing the Vaal'. “Finding someone to narrate my books felt like stepping into a minefield, so finding Melanie to narrate A Murderer's Heart (a murder mystery) was definitely my lucky day. Not only has she a wonderfully precise and clear voice with fabulous versatility for plot and characterisation, but also is professional and friendly so that the entire process was extremely easy for me. I would highly recommend Melanie Fraser's talent...so much so that I hope she will consider narrating more of my books.” Julie Elizabeth Powell, Author, ‘A Murderer's Heart' "Melanie produced a compelling reading that was highly dramatic and wholly credible. She brought the entire cast of characters to life in no uncertain terms, interpreted a number of accents faultlessly, and her clarity of diction made for an extremely pleasant listening experience.” Janet Whitehead, Author and David Whitehead, Producer, ‘ Princess in Peril' "Melanie did a beautiful job narrating Her Love! She is not only a lovely artist, but also a true professional. It was a pleasure to work with her!" Reina M Williams, Author, 'A Gentleman's Daughter: Her Love'
