I was always an avid reader from a tiny tot, and that hasn't stopped. To narrate audiobooks, you have to love reading!
Creating characters and bringing stories to life is such fun! One has to have stamina and dedication to narrate and produce audiobooks, with a love of the subject and meticulous attention to detail. It can take between three to six hours to produce one finished audiobook hour.
I love narrating books and children's books bring such a wonderful opportunity for characterisation to make the stories come alive. It can be so much fun. In some adult books, there've been moments when I've had to stop and take a break from recording when tears threaten whilst reading - the emotion can be so strong when the book is well written. Here is a selection of my work.

As an independent narrator and producer of audiobooks, I have the pleasure of working with authors who have lovingly written their manuscripts and rights holders who write and publish them, working narrators to create audio versions for listeners around the world.
When a Voice Actor produces an audiobook, we are the narrator, the director, the editor and the producer. We read the book through first, marking it up, and creating for every character voices for each one, which has to be maintained throughout the book. For every one hour of finished audio, it can take between three to six hours of work, depending on the complexity of the book.
I have the pleasure of working directly with authors or via The Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX) or Findaway Voices. I am a member of The Audiobook Creators Alliance in the UK, striving for high standards and integrity in the industry.
"Louise McCance-Price is a highly talented voice artist, who's studio skills and ability to deliver work to specification make working with her an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend her for your voice over or voice performance needs." - Publisher
"Couldn't put this one down! Loved this clean regency romance from start to finish. The story has such good tension that I found myself needing to listen to it all the time. All the tension and frustration builds to one of the best kiss scenes I have read in a clean romance! I would recommend this book and audiobook to anyone who likes a suspenseful clean romance with several twists and turns. The narration was wonderful." - Audible listener
"Lovely Story, easy listening. Beautifully written period piece that transports you by an engaging narration. I could see the places described and felt the emotions of the characters. This was really well read with each character coming to life with an array of voices, often making me forget it was one narrator." - Audible listener
"Props to the audiobook narrator for making this a fabulous reading/listening experience. she really nailed all the voices (the singing and laughing were a funny and delightful bonus 😂) - Audible listener
"Loved it! I enjoyed listening to this story from beginning to end. The actor who reads it does a very nice job... never a dull moment." - Audible listener
"Such a sweet story!!! This was a clean, sweet and romantic story that I didn’t want to put down. I loved every minute of it. I hope this will be a series. The writing was terrific as was the narration. A true pleasure." - Audible listener
