Narrating audiobooks is a dream-come-true for Lee Ann Howlett. From her childhood spent with her ‘nose in a book’ to her career as a university medical school librarian, books in all forms have been an integral part of her life. When she’s not busy narrating, Lee Ann enjoys movies, British TV series, scouring estate sales and antique shops, and exploring new cities. Her dog, Cooper, who is part Brussels Griffon and part Velcro, is always nearby.

NONFICTION -- BIOGRAPHY/MEMOIR "Dolly Parton, Gender and Country Music" by Leigh H. Edwards "Narrator Lee Ann Howlett deftly introduces the public and Private Dolly Parton in this well-researched study of a cultural phenomenon that's completely American--country music. Howlett's warm rendering of Parton's natural wit and considerable intelligence helps explain how she manages to combine the antithetical personas of an innocent mountain girl and a voluptuous sex symbol." AudioFile Magazine, January 2019 NONFICTION -- TRUE CRIME "She is Evil!" Madness and Murder in Memphis by Judith A. Yates "Yates weaves the tale expertly with just the right amount of detail and Howlett delivers a great voice over performance that kept me engaged throughout. I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone who enjoys a true crime story - this is one of the good ones." Simone, Audible Listener, 11/12/17 FICTION -- COZY MYSTERY "Imogene in New Orleans" by Hunter Murphy "Narrator Lee Ann Howlett does a rousing job portraying glorious New Orleans and its many residents… Howlett's Imogene is hilarious, reckless, and determined to help solve the murder. Listeners will enjoy an eventful tour and will especially enjoy the fun as one suspect is followed in a horse-drawn carriage." AudioFile Magazine, November 2016 FICTION -- CLASSICS "Bunner Sisters" by Edith Wharton "Narrator Lee Ann Howlett compassionately depicts a time when being poor and female was very difficult… Howlett skillfully captures the generous, insightful Anna Eliza and her selfish younger sister. She also deftly conveys the vast changes that occur when Herbert Ramy enters their lives after Anna Eliza buys a clock for her sister from him. Wharton's conclusion is heartbreaking but believable." AudioFile Magazine, June 2016 FICTION -- ROMANCE "Romancing Olive: A Prairie Romance" by Holly Bush "Once in a while it is refreshing to listen to a romance story that is innocent & good… Lee Ann Howlett is narrator. Her performance is very believable and keeps the reader/listener engaged. I marvel at her ability to vocalize each character, whether male or female, young or old. This is a great performance."
