Maggi-Meg Reed embarked on her career in audiobook narration when she was still in college, helping a blind classmate by reading textbooks and fiction to him. Her love of the spoken word started even earlier with the magical voices of her singer-mom and radio announcer-dad. She even recalls listening to the "Bookstall" radio program that featured serialized readings while doing summer house painting. Her theater career in New York has included stage, musical theater, and opera--including the lead in Cheri, based on a novel by Collette, at The Actors Studio. One of her first audiobooks was THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE . She found that it used all her theatrical and technical skills to move the characters through different ages and "age" their voices very subtly. Other titles include THE HIDDEN DIARY OF MARIE ANTOINETTE , a 2006 Audies Finalist in Abridged Fiction; George R.R. Martin's children's fantasy, THE ICE DRAGON ; and the Earphones-winner HIDE by Lisa Gardner. Her "fresh, intelligent, and attentive" performance makes Maggi-Meg a narrator we hope to hear more from.
