Hey, y'all! I am a stay-at-home mother of a chunky and happy 10-month-old. I enjoy reading and have tried to pass the love of literature to my daughter by reading my books aloud to her. (So far her favorite is Jane Eyre if giggling and clapping are any indications.)

Reading to my daughter gave me the idea to dabble in audiobook narration. Making her laugh with my funny voices has given me incredible joy. I discovered LibriVox while listening to Storyteller: How to be an Audio Book Narrator by Lorelei King and Ali Muirden. King mentioned LibriVox as a great place to volunteer and gain experience.

I look forward to joining this great community!

The adjective for metal is metallic. But not so for iron, which is ironic.
