Winner of the ABR Listener’s Choice Award in Mystery 2019 Society of Voice Arts & Sciences Audition Spotlight Finalist Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Paranormal Mystery Nominee I began narrating and publishing audiobooks in 2016. Out of my home studio in Southern California wine country, I bring characters' or the author's voices to life with emotion, intelligence and distinct accents and inflections in paranormal mystery, historical romance, historical mystery and nonfiction including memoir and religion & spirituality. As an author, I understand the effort and heartfelt labor writers invest in their stories, and I honor that achievement with attention to detail from preparation through post production. From one of Mary's audiobook clients, Faiz Ahmad of Book Studio Publishing: "I received many auditions, and I chose Mary Castillo to narrate as I immediately felt she captured the spirit of the book. It was not an easy task: a lengthy volume with many characters from different places. Her accents, intonations and interpretation of them were brilliant, and she brought the book to life. Mary always read with cognizance of the scene and presence. The tone, pace, rhythm and style were just right. I was so delighted with the reading that I asked her to work with me again on another project! The quality audio recording was excellent, and any requested modifications made to the narration were done swiftly and perfectly."
