Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Engaging
Performance Notes
A compilation of several various narration styles.

STYLE - YA Paranormal Fiction

Category : Teens
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Sarcastic
Performance Notes
A youthful, confident, and edgy American voice tailored to the Young Adult / Teen genre, carrying both an enthusiasm and sarcastic humor that make for an engaging combination. Featuring other characters and accents, including a gruff Norse warrior, a matronly female angel, and a shy young woman.

STYLE - Western Frontier

Category : Travel & Adventure
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-Western
Vocal Style : Cowboy
Performance Notes
A rough, gravelly, and rugged American voice with a Western accent--lending itself very nicely to frontier adventure novels, historical fiction, and westerns. Its tone keeps very natural and genuine, not stretching dramatically too high or low, giving it a feeling of emotional sincerity throughout.

STYLE - Romance

Category : Romance
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : British-General British
Vocal Style : Seductive/Sexy
Performance Notes
This is a deep, masculine, and sensual British voice that seems to have become a real winner throughout various Romance styles--though particularly historical and fantasy romance. Its rich tone and articulation make it quick to follow and easy on the ears.

STYLE - Military Suspense

Category : Mysteries & Thrillers
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-Urban
Vocal Style : Urban/Street
Performance Notes
A strong, straight-forward, and articulate mid-20's American voice, largely featuring a similarly-aged Black character with an Urban / Street accent. The characters are former squad-mates in the midst of a heated standoff, guns drawn and ready to pull the triggers. This particular style can carry a sardonic edge along with its gritty authority, and lends itself to many action-packed military or thriller novels, but also works well with contemporary fiction.

STYLE - Maritime Adventure

Category : Travel & Adventure
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : British English-Newcastle
Vocal Style : Warm
Performance Notes
A warm, rugged, middle-aged British voice with a Geordie / Newcastle accent--in the style of Liam Cunningham's "Ser Davos Seaworth". The smooth gravel and soft, vaguely Scotch accent gives it a very unique and pleasant sound that suits itself perfectly to adventure, fantasy, and maritime novels.

STYLE - High Fantasy

Category : Science Fiction & Fantasy
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : British-General British
Vocal Style : Storyteller
Performance Notes
An older, deeper, more powerful British voice in the style of Sir Ian McKellan's "Gandalf". Its resonance gives it a wise and compelling sound that works well with many high fantasies, as it is easily differentiated from most other character voices.

STYLE - Hardboiled Thriller

Category : Mysteries & Thrillers
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Authoritative
Performance Notes
A stern, gravelly, middle-aged American voice in the vein of Bryan Cranston's "Walter White". Capable of conveying dry sarcasm and dark humor, or meticulous brooding and harsh severity. Works well for mystery and crime, like the old noir hardboiled detective novels, and for grittier contemporary pieces.

STYLE - Political Fantasy

Category : Science Fiction & Fantasy
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : British-General British
Vocal Style : Engaging
Performance Notes
A commanding and engaging British voice, powerful but not overbearing, that works well for political fantasies and romances. Features several unique British male characters interacting during a political council meeting, including an example of the Geordie accent.

STYLE - Classic Fantasy

Category : Science Fiction & Fantasy
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : British-General British
Vocal Style : Storyteller
Performance Notes
An older, smooth, mid-ranged British voice that takes a more subtle approach to narration--character differentiations are more subdued, keeping a more consistent tone and pacing throughout, in the style of classical narrators.

STYLE - Epic Dark Fantasy

Category : Science Fiction & Fantasy
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : British-General British
Vocal Style : Masculine
Performance Notes
A strong, masculine British narration style geared toward the action and suspense found in many fantasies. Features a handful of warrior characters, and a dark "demon" / "monster" creature voice.

STYLE - Contemporary Fiction, LGBT

Category : Fiction
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-New York
Vocal Style : Quirky

A 20's-30's New York accent with emotional highs and lows, as a character that has gone through a recent string of traumas and finds himself at the end of his rope.

Scene - Uncle Tony & Kid

Category : Comedy
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-New York
Vocal Style : Comedic/great comic timing
Performance Notes
Done for the video game "C.A.T.S.", this little snippet showcases a sweet, young boy reading the last will and testament of his boisterous, bawdy, and hilariously-awful Uncle Tony--who had recently entered his nephew into a gladiator-style battlebot arena before accidentally blowing himself up. Funny, comedic, melodramatic, gruff.

Scene - Redneck Standoff

Category : Mysteries & Thrillers
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-Southern
Vocal Style : Intimidating
Performance Notes
From "The Debt Collector" series: an emotional criminal from the sticks has turned a gun on his gang leader--but quickly learns that threats mean nothing against a man who isn't afraid to die. Intense, dramatic, heated, suspenseful.

Character - Midwestern Mom

Category : Comedy
Language : English
Gender : Female
Accent : American-Mid-West
Vocal Style : Male narrating a female part
Performance Notes
From "Love Me Whole": a slightly-overprotective and loving midwestern mother--the kind who licks her palm to smooth your hair well into your 40's. Feminine, light-hearted, warm.

Character - Fast-talking Black Man

Category : Comedy
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-Urban
Vocal Style : Urban/Street
Performance Notes
From "The Eliminator" series: a fast-talker who uses his quick wit and street smarts to stay one step ahead of everyone trying to get him. Stylistically, think Eddie Murphy or Chris Tucker. Urban, energetic, funny.

Scene - Backwoods Interview

Category : Mysteries & Thrillers
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-Southern
Vocal Style : Rough/edgy
Performance Notes
A scene from "The Debt Collector" series, in which protagonist Jack Winchester interviews an older, backwoods curmudgeon about his possible involvement in a string of unsolved murders. Gruff, uneducated, abrasive.

Character - Old Sage

Gender : Male
Accent : British-General British
Vocal Style : Professorial
Performance Notes
Aged, thoughtful, and filled with a lifetime of wisdom. Whether it be a smiling grandfather, a happy old wizard, or a contented professor enjoying his twilight years, this is a voice that enjoys nothing more than passing down knowledge from generation to generation.

A comedic sample "movie trailer" borrowed from Pablo Francisco--starring the deep growl of Don Lafontaine, a stereotypical gangster, a concerned latina, Keanu Reeves, with a special guest appearance by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He is easy to work with, very professional and talented narrator and he quickly became one of my favorite producers. His character voices are amazing! He is engaging and convincing, and on top of that, he finished the production way ahead of schedule! What else could I want? I highly recommend him and I look forward to work with him again in the very near future." - Claudia R. Barrett, 12 Springs Publications "I'm listening to it while I type and it is abso-freaking-awesome so far. I'm blown away how you can hang onto Morgan Freeman's voice and yet hit the perfect pace. I don't write 'easy-reading' fiction. A fellow has to think a bit while he is reading it and you are doing it perfectly. I'm blown away." - Steve Vernon
