Reading books out loud has long been a passion for me. I have been a professional audiobook narrator since 2011, and have produced recordings for ACX, Bee Audio, Essential Audio, Findaway Voices, Spoken Realms, The Online Stage, Voices of Today, and Iambik. I have been recording free audiobooks for LibriVox since 2007, and have produced over 60 solo recordings of novels, short stories, and poetry. I have a B.A. in Theatre from Drew University (one of the top theatre programs in the U.S.), and have recorded a variety of dramatic projects, performing roles ranging from Lady Macbeth to Antigone to Juliet. I also hold M.A. and doctoral degrees in English literature from the University of Illinois and teach at a university in Houston, TX. I get a lot of daily experience reading aloud, thanks to my book-loving daughter. My natural accent is American (with no regional accent) and I am proficient in British RP, regional British accents, Irish, and Scottish accents.

“An exciting history and mythology adventure is narrated with perfection by Elizabeth Klett … Klett offers an extensive cast of characters with varying emotion. The tween cast sounds pitch-perfect, and Klett easily navigates from one accent to another, with each character sounding unique.” - AudioFile magazine review of Keepers of the Labyrinth (http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/reviews/read/105979/) “Elizabeth is such a wonderful narrator. She is such a perfect fit for Roya, and does a hilarious snarky Joseph, and sarcastic nasty Ren, that make this whole audible experience so great. I feel like I have developed a bond with Roya through Elizabeth's amazing narration.” - Paranormally Yours review of Revived (http://paranormalyyours.com/2015/11/audiobook-review-revived-the-lucidites-book-3/) "Elizabeth Klett, who narrates Death of a Nationalist, does a great job. Her character voices are nuanced, each is imbued with subtle individuality. I'll definitely be listening to more of her work." (BookSexyReview, http://booksexyreview.com/2012/01/04/death-of-a-nationalist-by-rebecca-pawel-narrated-by-elizabeth-klett/) “Elizabeth had a fresh young girl tone to her voice, as well as a kick ass British accent for Ren! Elizabeth delivered an excellent performance for all the characters, and there were a lot of them!” - Paranormally Yours review of Awoken (http://paranormalyyours.com/2015/08/audiobook-review-awoken-the-lucidites-1/) “Recently, anxious to return to the story of Jane Eyre yet again, I downloaded one of Librivox's versions of Jane Eyre, recorded by Elizabeth Klett. Imagine my surprise when I found myself listening to what I had always imagined Jane's voice to be. This recording, in my opinion, exceeds any of the professionally produced versions of the novel that I have listened to in the past. Klett perfectly captures each nuance of the story, and the characters came alive for me in a way that they never had before. If you love Jane Eyre, as I do, let me encourage you to give this version a listen and see if you aren't impressed!” (Never Not Reading, review and interview, http://nevernotreading.blogspot.com/2009/06/jane-eyre-speaks-through-elizabeth.html) "Elizabeth Klett has found a niche in reading works by women novelists. I've listened to her readings of Edith Wharton, Jane Austen, the Brontës and Louisa May Alcott and am now ear-devouring her rendition of Mary Elizabeth Braddon's potboiler, Lady Audley's Secret. Klett does such a wondrous job on Wharton's House of Mirth I have listened to it twice and have not removed it from my iPod. Klett has a pure, mid-toned voice, does characters, sometimes very convincing accents, and clearly adores the writing of these women."
