Lucinda was nine years old when she produced her first audiobook. This was in 1965. That Christmas she received two gifts that were to start her on this path: a book of Edgar Allen Poe’s short stories and a small reel-to-reel tape recorder.  She spent the holidays recording (and re-recording) The Tell-Tale Heart with dramatic sound effects.

 

A rather long hiatus occurred before she re-entered the world of audiobook narration. In the intervening years, she has pursued a career on stage. She graduated in 1980 from Carnegie-Mellon University with a BFA in Drama (Acting Emphasis), trained with Shakespeare & Company in Lenox Massachusetts, and has performed on stages from the Midwest to the East Coast.

 

The recent advances in technology have given her the opportunity to return to the immensely satisfying work of audiobook narration. She can now enter the worlds her authors create and tell their stories from the intimacy of her Studiobricks sound booth. Her microphone is a Sennheiser MKH416 connected to her iMac through a Sound Devices USBPre 2 interface.
