All about Eve
Growing up in Manhattan, I fell in love with reading great mystery and thriller writers like Josephine Tey, Ngio Marsh, Dick Francis, and Agatha Christie (and performing on stage in her show “And Then There Were None”). I even promoted Clive Cussler’s books in my first job out of college (he asked me to run away with him to Tahiti - I demurred).
Years later, I had the joy of living in Boston and pastoral Vermont. History, maple syrup, grist mills, general stores with post-office boxes and everything you could need. (As they said, if you can’t get it there - you don’t need it.) Plus, heating my home with a wood stove. Living the life of hay-rides, outdoor theatre, and old bookstores so often depicted in audiobooks.
Moving out West, I added a multitude of adventure, nature and feminist writers. Exploring the red rocks of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks (and spending time in the words and presence of Terry Tempest Williams and Amy Irvine) brings and immediacy to my narration whenever a character is in nature. Discovering the world. Discovering herself.
No matter the location, or style of writing, it all comes down to connection. Inhabiting.
I bring my keen sense of humor, savvy and smarts to the lives of the women (and men and girls and boys) that I get to breathe life into. Scientists and suffragettes, detectives and divas, homesteaders and homemakers, entrepreneurs and environmentalists. Even the rapscallions and ne’er do wells. I love them all.
Probably because I’ve worked, traveled and spent time with so many interesting people from all walks of life. And as a New York-trained actor, I’ve delved into the lives of multi-faceted characters from all over the world. On stage, I’ve performed in New York and New England, including an IRNE Award nominated show; in the voiceover booth and on camera I’ve worked with McGraw Hill, Museums, the Thunderbird School of Management, as well as on video games, commercials, tv and film. Not to mention live corporate training for companies in London, Sao Paolo, and across the US as well as Ivy League Medical Schools.
And then there are audiobooks. I love the intimacy and immediacy of audiobooks. (As a story-teller and as a listener.)
Each type of performing I’ve done has informed my narration. Each time I’ve travelled. Every sport I’ve played (now, there’s live theatre). Each type of fine art or craft I’ve explored, has informed my narration.
Every book has moments of mystery, suspense, and love. I thrive on telling those stories and bringing every character to life.
Now I'm in Montana, discovering the terrain and words of the Northwest. Along with narrating for USA Today and NY Times best-selling authors, voicing “The Women of Kabul” -The Washington Post’s Webby Award Honoree multimedia piece, I’ve performed on SOVAS (Society of Voice Arts), Independent Audiobook Award, and Audie Award nominated audiobooks as well as an Earphones Award winning title. I am a member of AEA, SAG-AFTRA and the Audiobook Publisher’s Association.
