As a poet and fiction writer with no formal acting training, I was so nervous about narrating the audiobook for my YA novel. I scoured the internet for narration resources and happened upon a four-session course being facilitated by Erin. Signing up for this course was the absolute best thing I could have done for myself as an author-turned-narrator. Erin’s coaching was empowering, compassionate and insightful. Through hands-on practice in an audio booth, Erin helped me better understand narrative voices, tonal shifts, pacing, cadence and vocal drama. I was so impressed with the course that I booked a one-on-one session with Erin over Zoom, as well. Although we were not working together in person, Erin was so helpful over Zoom, helping me tap into the deepest emotions of the scenes I was reading. Erin’s coaching instilled so much confidence in me and I felt much more comfortable recording my novel as a result. My audiobook—the first full length fiction novel I had ever recorded—went on to be a Kobo Audiobook of the Month pick and received a starred review from ALA Booklist. This wouldn’t have been possible without Erin.
