Nancy Herriman’s Mystery of Old San Francisco Series

REVIEW in AudioFile Magazine of  No Pity For the Dead:

Stina Nielsen, who narrated NO COMFORT FOR THE LOST, is completely at home delivering the second in Herriman’s Mystery of Old San Francisco series. This time, nurse Celia Davies and detective Nick Greaves are on the hunt for answers after 14-year-old Owen digs up a body under the basement floor of the offices of a dodgy real estate company. Nielsen’s portrayal of Owen is so real listeners will swear there’s a teenager in the room. Her Celia is spunky, conflicted about her attraction to Nick, and incorrigible. Her version of Nick sounds like a man trying to be nonjudgmental but whose bias is showing. The plotting is clever, the characters are appealing, and Stina Nielsen’s performance makes this first-rate series even better. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2017

Interactive Theatre /Diversity Training with DeValk Associates

For the past few years I have been performing with a wonderful company called DeValk Associates.  We perform short dramatizations of workplace situations as catalysts to in depth conversations about micro inequities, diversity awareness and respectful, productive workplace communication.

Steve DeValk, who runs the company, interviews the clients extensively in order to then write unique scripts based on the issues the client needs addressed. Then we rehearse with him and on the day of the program our performances enhance his moderation and presentation.  It’s really been exciting to do this work and I’m so happy to be a part of it all.

Here is a Fortune.com article about one of our performances for the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative last November:

What a joy to read!

 

Diane Zahler’s Baker’s Magic

This was a really fun project to work on and the collection of voices is part of the magic 😉

A full cast works together seamlessly in this charming magical adventure. As the story’s narrator, Tavia Gilbert is crisply engaged, and she’s spirited as young Bee, the baker’s apprentice. Kenneth Cavett, with his rich and resonant voice, is a standout as kindly baker Master Bouts, and Robin Miles is a hoot as pirate captain Zafira Zay. The care in the production is evident–the rest of the cast adds vocal personality to characters both large and small, and mood-appropriate snippets of music begin and end each chapter, helping to sweep listeners along. Scenes in the bakery are rendered with as much attention to detail as those on the high seas or in the mage’s castle–beware of listening while hungry.

MetaBook – I’ll Take You There

I recently played Ingrid Bergman in a MetaBook of Wally Lamb’s I’LL TAKE YOU THERE. Technically it was my second project working with Kathleen Turner, except this time we were in different recording studios, in different cities, on different days and of course we never saw each other or spoke to each other. So, this doesn’t count I guess. But we’re together on the final project. 😉

MetaBook is a new platform for audiobooks. It arrives as an app and supplies several different forms of media surrounding the audiobook.  This one has videos, music, and a short film to supplement your listening experience.  It’s very cool, check it out…
