Jeannée Sacken, author of The Annie Hawkins Green Series

Nicole Swanson puts her heart and soul into the audiobooks she narrates, including all three books of award-winning The Annie Hawkins Series. Trained in voice at college, she researches and develops voices—including those speaking languages other than English—for entire casts of characters, giving each tremendous depth as well as a unique quality and tone that makes for great listening. The range of her voices is truly stunning. Perhaps what I love best about working with Nicole is that when I listen to her finished narration, every single character’s voice rings true—lyrical, raw, edgy, sarcastic, whatever the scene needs—to how I originally heard it when creating the novels.

Charmain Z. Brackett, author of Grace’s Augusta Mysteries Series

I’ve worked with Nicole on four projects now. And they haven’t been exactly easy.  One recurring character is from New Orleans and has a Cajun twang. Then, in one book, I had not one Russian character, but about five or more, which she pulled off like it was nothing. What makes Nicole a great narrator is she’s an actor first. She grasps characters and characterizations. I rarely have to ask her to tweak anything. She brings the full range of emotion to the characters too and makes their personalities shine through. The reviews we’ve gotten have been mainly to her credit in bringing the written word to life.

Craig Hart, Northern Lake Audio

Nicole Swanson is not only a talented narrator with an ear for in-depth character performance, but is also the consummate professional. Prompt and communicative, working with Nicole has been one of the highlights of my career. I look forward to completing many more projects with her in the future!

Nicole Martinez, Editor-In-Chief, Pelican Book Group

Nicole Swanson is a professional and a talent. She’s brought to life the characters in each book she’s narrated for us and has always delivered a quality audio.

Nicole was easy to work with, and produced a stellar product that was on time, easy to access, and raised the quality of my instructional videos. I’d ask for her work again in a heartbeat.
