Heather is a fresh new voice talent, back in the business from a parental hiatus. Her voice is distinctively crisp and articulate. Trained originally as a news broadcaster, she has stepped into the world of audiobooks, narration and voice overs. Years of entertaining her children by making their story books come alive was the daily practice she received, developing character voices and nuances to a very discerning crowd. Now, she is doing her readings and interpretations professionally.

When I decided I wanted to publish my books in audio format I had no idea how to do it or what to expect from the process. Heather took my manuscript and with her skill and talent brought my characters to life in a way I never expected. She is the voice of my characters.Milissa Story
Not only did Heather help me reach many more readers with my stories, but I have learned so much from her about the audiobook process and industry. I am so happy and humbled that she is a part of my team.
