5 Questions with Dion Graham

5 Questions with Narrator Dion Graham

5 Questions with Dion Graham

I am beyond thrilled to introduce this month’s guest narrator, Dion Graham, who is a multi-Audie Award winner and a TV, silver screen, and stage actor. Dion’s impressive voice acting talent has also earned him numerous AudioFile Earphones Awards and an Odyssey Award. But wait! There’s more! His performances have won him spots on AudioFile’s Best Audiobooks of the year lists for seven years running, and he’s one of AudioFile’s Golden Voice narrators.

Yet, despite all the accolades, Dion remains a genuinely nice, friendly, and down-to-earth person who was kind enough to visit with us today.

Audiobook lovers agree that Dion’s performances create an immersive listening experience no matter the genre or target audience. He brings excitement and wonder, fear and frustration to stories geared to young listeners, and for mysteries, Dion underscores the tension through tone and pacing. In all cases, his masterful character portrayals are both believable and respectful of the author’s work. Read more…
