Hello and welcome!
I am so excited to introduce you to one of my recent addition to my ‘eargasm’ list and her audio work.
Welcome Jennifer Blom!
I am an audiobook narrator and actor living in New York. I have a varied background in many fields but found my passion in the creative pursuits. I have been a junior software engineer, a technical support specialist, and am involved in theater both on and offstage. I am also a singer and love playing my Ukulele. I have studied 3D animation, game design, true crime and forensic psychology, you know, for fun. I love knowing about how the world works at a deeper level.
Besides narrating I also run Reaping Audiobooks where I lead an all female crew in the task of post production on audiobooks. I also coach others in the art of using Reaper and efficiency in general. I love helping people find the magic and joy in technology again.
Do you have a nickname?
Some friends on Discord came up with the name Blomshell. So I suppose that is a pretty good one. Also, jendabom is a tag I often use for online accounts.
What is one word best describes you?
That would be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
What makes you laugh out loud?
Honestly, way too much. I tend to find obscure connections but I find the little nuggets of humor in most things. Call me the Sherlock Holmes of comedy.
What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Browning butter, it reminds me of my mom’s palatschinken Austrian version of a crepe.
Favourite place to spend time in.
Love my booth, and the places I journey from this padded room. If not that, I adore the ocean or the forest.
Share a funny memory.
A funny memory, oh boy, how much time you got. I usually only share funny stories over a tasty beverage. So buy me a drink and you will laugh your butt off. edited my own curse out
What is your fave genre to read in your spare time? Do you have any spare time?
I feel like you knew that I wouldn’t have spare time. I actually love listening to non-fiction books. Something that will let my brain ponder those deep thoughts, ya know.
Audiobooks! What started them?
A natural progression from theater and performing on stage, and just my love of telling stories.
Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
No, I am not picky about genre. I do love character growth and emotional journeys and as long as that fits and the writing is enjoyable I am game.
If you could choose another career what would it be?
I have had lots of careers. Loved working at a theme park as a ride operator. But, I would love to do music, and perform on stage more.
Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
My intended audience goes hand in hand with the books that I am narrating. I want those that love the stories that I am fortunate enough to narrate to enjoy the ride of their favorite authors. That said, I have been told my voice is like a warm hug so if you need a hug, give me a listen.
What is next in your narrating work?
Next up is Tropical Punch, book 1 in Bubbles in Space, by S.C. Jensen. It is a Sci-Fi Noir and I am very excited to be working on it.
Thank you so much Jennifer for spending some time in my little corner of the blogging world. I am looking forward to listening to more of your work.
Thank you for joining us and hope you enjoyed the chat.
I really enjoy listening to Ms. Blom’s voice as she is telling the story, giving the voice to the characters, they come alive.
There are quite a few books on my TBL among Ms. Blom narrations. So many to choose from!
