Booklist interview: Katherine Kellgren

I was thrilled to see Ellen Myrick’s interview with audiobook narrator Katherine Kellgren in the April 1st Booklist and on Booklist Online. Katy holds the enviable record of being the first narrator to appear on multiple Odyssey titles –  she reads two Odyssey Award Honor titles: 2008’s Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventures of Mary “Jacky” Faber, Ship’s Boy and 2009’s Curse of the Blue Tattoo.

Katy is a charming and supremely talented actor, particularly adept at voicing British accents with a historical flair, as in the Odyssey titles featuring “Jacky” Faber and the Enola Holmes mystery series, which includes The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets and The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan. Find out more about Katy in this Audiobooker post, and catch Katy at work in this video chronicling the production of the Dune audiobooks:
