Marni has breathed life into the characters of FIRE GAMES exactly as I imagined them. I forgot to breathe in parts as I proofed the audio. I really felt like I was there, watching every tense moment. Those who love being read to (especially by a voice talent with major acting skills to boot) will not want to miss this!
Marni's hilarious video series with Natalie Naudus "2 Audiobook Narrators in a Car" has been viewed over 400,000 times and counting across social media. The original video was picked up by ViralHog, DailyMotion, RightThisMinute.com, and other major outlets. Natalie throws obscure voice requests at Marni with side-splitting results.

Marni found her love behind the mic as a wee disc jockey back in college. Her natural propensity for character voices and complex accents led her to study with legendary animation guru Pat Fraley.
She cut her teeth in narration for the Library of Congress Books for the Blind, as well as performing in over 350 large-cast recordings for Graphic Audio. Her favorite genres include YA fantasy, sci-fi thrillers, cozy mysteries, and quirky romances.
From audiobooks to eLearning to full-cast radio drama, Marni has found a home as a voice actor ever since. When not recording (and not going live for "Morning Tea with Marni" for her 7000+ TikTok followers), Marni is spending as much time as possible with her family, which includes her husband, son, puppy Bagheera, fish Marlon, Nemo, and Big Blue, and Acheron, Nexus, and SpaceCluck, the chickens.
