Ivy’s Bio

Hello audiobook lovers!

What do I do in this world of audiobook recording? Well, my great love is speculative fiction, whether YA literature or adult, scifi or dystopia, urban fantasy or AU fiction. Give me another way to see the world and I will immerse myself in that book for weeks at a time! Being able to record it only enhances the experience.

I have a background in theater and music extending back to early childhood, including live performance, effects and sound engineering; as well as producing final recordings of both live and studio productions.

I moved into audiobooks, branched out into amateur radio plays and effects/foley, and have been honing a hybrid performance and production style for professional work. I greatly enjoy employing character voices and effects, as well as creating a seamless subtle soundscape which enhances but does not overshadow the performance. My use of sound is more of a sketch of character immersion than audience immersion, a supporting role rather than a distraction for the ear.

Where an author calls for a straight narrative style, my narration is sympathetic, precise, soothing and clear. I have exceptional, crisp diction, anchored in a low contralto, slightly husky delivery that avoids the slight edginess of so many female voices. I record carefully and with great joy, and hope you find the results delightful.
