Hello and welcome!
My guest today has a voice that gave me many hours of listening bliss and she is definitely on my ‘eargasm’ voices list. My love affair with her work started in August last year, listening to the voices she gives to the characters and how she gives their emotions life is something to be experienced.
Please welcome Kelsey Navarro!
Do you have a nickname?
I usually go by Kelsey, but Kel or Kels sometimes.
What is one word best describes you?
Optimistic? That’s a tough one.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Memes and sarcasm
What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I LOVE wintery smells and baking anything with cinnamon.
Favourite place to spend time in.
I love being in my booth.
What is your fave genre to read in your spare time? Do you have any spare time?
I am a huge romance fan so I tend to listen to all subgenres of that when I have time. I also love self-help non-fiction. I’m a big nerd for personal development.
Audiobooks! What started them?
I’ve always wanted to be in voice over. But a few years ago I went through demo coaching for Commercial and Narration and found audiobooks. Never looked back from there.
Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
No, not so far. I definitely have preferences but I would narrate any genre.
If you could choose another career what would it be?
I actually had another one prior to this. I was in retail management for 8 years prior to going into voice over full time.
Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I do a pretty varied amount of work so I don’t know that there’s a specific emotion or message. I’m a huge fan of keeping the performance as genuine as possible.
Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
I do tend to mostly do romance and it’s my favorite genre so those that love that genre would like what I do. I love what I do and hope that shows in my work.
Believe me, it does show.
What is next in your narrating work?
I’m working on a lot this next month! Some Alien romance, a Reverse Harem series, Contemporary romance, a few dual narration and some other great things.
Oh I like the sound of that, looking forward to more hours of ‘eargasms’ 😉
Thank you for chatting with me.
Thank you all for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat.
I listened to 6 books so far and gave all of them 5 stars for performance, more waiting in my library.
The backlist has 32 titles published and by the sounds of it many more in production. Music to my ears.
