Rhiannon Angell, the Voice Behind the Story
I sat down (virtually, of course) with Rhiannon Angell, the amazing vocal talent behind the recently released Audible version of my dystopian word-baby, Killshot (Icarus Series, Book One). Stay tuned for an exclusive preview sample and learn a little bit about Rhiannon and what makes her tick
Tell me a little bit about yourself, Rhiannon...
"I studied acting and play-writing in college, and I've been performing in the New England area for the past 7 years. I recently turned to the world of voice over, specifically audio book narration, and I haven't looked back."
"YA Dystopia has long been one my favorite genres to read for pleasure, and if you're going to spend 100+ hours producing an audiobook, it's gotta be a book that you LOVE. In this regard, I consider myself very lucky to have had Killshot land in my lap! The protagonist, Liv, has a distinct voice, with a lot of sarcastic inner monologue thrown in for good measure. I connected with her character right away and it was such a pleasure to voice her."
What was the most difficult part of this project?
"It was definitely a challenge at times to find distinct voices for Liv's cast of misfit friends - there are many scenes that involve six or more individual characters! But it was a challenge I enjoyed and I hope I was able to rise to the occasion. I'm excited to work with these characters again, as production has just begun on the prequel, Before The Sky Fell."
Well, there you have it, folks...a quick little peek into the mind of an Audible vocal genius. Rhiannon was an absolute dream to work with from beginning to end. She does an amazing job of immersing herself in the story and an amazing sense of humor. She made the whole experience more fun than I could have imagined possible. She was patient and professional, and I couldn't have asked for a more!
Rhiannon...you are an amazing producer. I will never be able to thank her enough for breathing life into the characters that had previously existed only in my head and in print. It was absolutely surreal to hear Liv's voice aloud....and you did it with such passion and dedication choosing you for Before the Sky Fell was an absolute no-brainer!
