As a professional actress and voracious reader, book narration is the obvious and happy way to incorporate both into outstanding productions. My voice is warm and inviting, friendly, funny and comfortably expressive. I am uniquely attuned to script interpretation, dialogue, children's voices and accents with a versatility that speaks to years spent in classical theater, children's theater, radio, and television.

With years of training and experience, Toni provides versatile and stand-out quality to every project from her own professional spec studio. Every client receives 100 percent focus and professionalism and she is available 24/7 by phone or Skype. Her ability to take direction and work successfully with producers is matched with her ability to successfully interpret and complete projects through self-direction. Her love of the written word shows through her performance.
What she does with this narrative is astonishing. Those of you who might have read the book (or skimmed through some of the blog posts which began this project), know that I used a lot of quotes. They are from interviews, or from old newspapers, magazines, reviews from long ago and these quotes provide voices to the story of Ann Blyth’s career. Ms. Lewis, being an actress, provides “voices” to the voices.Another Old Movie Blog/Jacqueline T. Lynch, Author of Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star.
The result is an audio book like none I have ever heard. Most narrators will adopt a suitable vocal tone and personality and use it throughout the book, and it is a voice usually, of necessity, general, nondescript, objective, and omniscient. Toni acts out the book. She’s gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. She’s Roddy McDowell. She’s the co-stars, the agent, the critic from the Midwest. She’s Ann Blyth. If you provided a quote for the book, she’s you. She does many voices, and accents, and I’ve lost count. There are some line readings that sent chills up my spine. She has brought warmth and depth, color, and the promise of possibly the most entertaining audio book you ever heard. Indeed, it seems more like listening to a radio play than a book reading. Her narration is touching, funny, often thrilling and always imaginative
