Hi there everyone...Aretha from Halifax, Nova Scotia here! :D

I discovered this site by accident but am thrilled to have done so. I am just getting into the audiobook narration / voice over waters and have been looking for a way to get my feet wet with some audiobook narration. I have long since been a lover of the spoken word and reading; English / Language Arts was always a subject I excelled at in school. I was the classroom geek that looked forward to reading aloud when the teacher would go around the classroom and get each student to read a portion of a chapter from a textbook. Additionally, I have always enjoyed reading to children. I think of my love for the spoken word as a natural extension of my love of writing.

I look forward to lending my services to this wonderful cause and getting to know you all in the process.

Hi from Sherwood Park,

I'm currently re-enjoying the dramatic readings of the Green Gables series :) I love being able to listen to my old favourites, especially as I use transit to & from work and this allows me to enjoy a good book while on the bus or driving.
