I enjoy narrating both fiction and nonfiction. I bring a friendly, warm, relatable voice to my narration projects. My voice is also described as youthful, which would be excellent for Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction. The most unique description of my voice that I've heard, chameleon .
My goal is to connect with the listener in a relatable, approachable, authentic way. I want the listener to be able to visualize the story in their mind, getting lost in the tale, as if my voice isn't even there guiding them through the journey.
In my home studio, I record in a treated recording space with a Blue Yeti microphone, Audacity DAW, Izotope RX processing tools, and I'm available for remote sessions through Google Meet. I also have access to a professional local studio.
Review for Fading Petals:
The narrator, Glenda Villamar, does an excellent job of performing this audiobook. She reflects on moments of self-reflection, fear, doubt, and confusion of Rue well. She also projects the personalities of each character perfectly bringing the listener into the story. Villamar speaks clearly and smoothly. Her delivery style is such that the listener does not realize there is a plot twist or something drastic coming until it happens. To me, this is what makes a wonderful narrator!rrator, Glenda Villamar does an excellent job of performing this audiobook.

Review for Hugelkultur Gardening:
The narrator is clear and engaging. The accompanying PDF is a great reference to see the different diagrams of garden bed layouts. Give it a try!
Reviews for Legacy of Dragonwand, Book V:
The narrator, Glenda Villamar, brought this book to life. I look forward to more from each. I felt as if I was in the story myself.
