Highlights

Female voice over artist whose vocal attributes - educated, articulate, engaging, friendly, compassionate, approachable, caring, mature, believable, expressive, instructive, and trustworthy - create an air of warmth and wisdom. Marie has extensive experience narrating and producing audiobooks in the following areas: memoirs and biographies, kids', how-to, financial and business books, self-help and academic textbooks. Her diction, articulation and tonal shifts are excellent for promos, PSAs, museum audio tours and especially narration. Her friendly, soft, narrative, storyteller and conversational demeanor are perfect for the "mom next door" or elementary school teacher character.

Testimonials

"I have listened, couldn't stop listening actually, to everything you recorded, and I can tell you in all honesty that your narration of "Missygirl the Calico Cat Book 1 & Book 2 Combined" is simply brilliant. I congratulate you on the fine job you have done here. If I had interviewed a thousand-million people, I don't believe I would have found anyone who could have done this better. It really shows that you put your heart into every word! The quality of the diction and the tonal shifts are most excellent! Your application of the proper emphasis at the proper time (or not) is positively spell-binding. Every single expressive intonation is simply splendid! You have brought "Missygirl the Calico Cat" to life in ways that few others are capable of doing! I thank you. Neil E. Clement, Author

"I am overjoyed and very pleased by your very professional and easy-to-listen narration of my book. Your excellent production has turned into a fine work of artistic talent. Thank you so much, Marie, for bringing so much warmth to the recording. With my deep appreciation." Bernard

Bernard Levine - Author - "The Secrets of the Jewish World"

"The narrator, Marie Hoffman, did a great job reading this book. The voice was soothing, and her multiple voices were spot on. I have read this book in the Kindle version. Listening to it again on audio is like hearing a whole new book. The narration breathes life into this tale as all audiobooks do...This would be a great book to listen to on your way to work or even while you are out for a walk! Great job!"

Terri B. - ACX reviewer of "Tea Can Wait"

"Marie is an experienced producer of audiobooks who I have worked with on two occasions. She is professional, easy to work with, and completes work within deadlines. The first time I worked with Marie, her audition stood out! Her pleasant-sounding voice and skillful narrative style were the main reasons I picked her out of all the other auditions. I've been very pleased with the quality of her work. I would not hesitate to work with her again." Anthony Clark, Editor, Pomegranate Publishing
