Jacqueline’s Story

As a quiet only child growing up in a sleepy little country village in Worcestershire UK, surrounded by fields and sheep, lots of sheep, books were my friends. Stories of adventure and travel to far off lands fed my vivid imagination and led to real life international adventures of my own including immigration to the US and a year in Japan.

A young bright British voice, ideal for middle grade, young adult, and cozy mysteries, I can seamlessly switch to that of a calm, sophisticated historical romantic fiction and non-fiction narrator.

With the attitude and approach of a lifelong learner, I’m narrating and cultivating my audio acting skills through training with leading industry coaches. As in my childhood days, I treat each new book as an adventure, with its own delicious story waiting to be revealed.

When not performing audiobook narration, you can find me absorbed in audiobook adventures while curled up with my 3 favorite fellas: my Canadian hubby Bruce and/or our fur kids Prince Harry and Bear, feeding my soul with hikes in nature, or playing the piano and tap dancing (not generally at the same time).

Thank you for visiting, if you are interested in exploring the possibility of working together on your audiobook project, please connect with me here.
