A mom and teacher who has read stories for decades, to children and adults. I bring you the skills of being accessible and compelling for non-fiction, and captivating for YA, mystery, and sci-fi. Your book deserves the most caring and capable translation into audio, to bring your fine writing to a whole new “readership.” I can give you that. Please visit me at KarenRoseRichter.com
The body of my audiobook work includes YA (Young Adult) fiction, mystery/thriller, sci-fi and romance. Additionally, I've narrated over 75 fairy tales, folktales and Bible stories for the Bedtime Stories Collection app, and have voiced The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn, an Oceanhouse Media read-and-learn-along book for early elementary school children. Theatrical productions have run the gamut from American Theatre (Our Town and Little Women) to Greek tragedy (Medea) and Theatre of the Absurd ('Dentity Crisis) with a little Musical Theatre (Carousel) thrown in for good measure.
