What clients, authors, & listeners are saying about me...
"Marnye has an extremely versatile voice that brings any character, young or old, real or fictional, to life. She has the unique ability of drawing you in and making you part of the story, which, in itself, is a quality that I really wanted in the audio version of my books. Not only is Marnye professional and a complete dream to work with, she has truly become the voice in my Keeper series."
-KR Thompson, NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of the Keeper Saga (Books 1-8) and Shifter's University Series
"Marnye brought our characters to life with her wonderful talents. The extraordinary span of her voice encompassed the variety of our characters and creatures giving them a life beyond our expectations. She’s a joy to work with, and we look forward to hearing how she’ll bring the rest of our fantasy stories to life."
- JJ Anders (NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author Jill Sanders & sister Jody Luft) authors of The Genoa Chronicles

"Marnye Young’s performance of my USA Today bestseller, THE TASTE OF AIR, is skillful, sensitive and enthralling. She slips effortlessly between a wide range of voices to portray various characters, and enhances the mood-setting descriptions with careful pacing and emphasis. The dramatic scenes are absolutely riveting! I feel very lucky to have her talent associated with my work."
- Gail Cleare, USA Today bestselling author of The Taste of Air

-Anne Cleeland, author of Doyle and Acton (Scotland Yard Mysteries)
"You did an amazing job! I actually cried!"
- Evan Grace, author of Ripple Effects
"Marnye is my narrator dream-come-true. Not only did she do a great job with the variety of accents in my European-set novel, but working with her was an utter delight. She also invests herself in the authors for whom she narrates, by spreading the word about their books on social media. I can’t wait to work with her again!"
-Christine Trent, author of The Lady of Ashes series (Books 1-6)
“Working with Marnye was a pleasure. Her responsiveness and professionalism gave me the confidence that the production of my audiobook was in good hands. All that on top of Marnye’s beautiful, expressive voice…It was such a joy to listen to my novel come to life.”
-Jeanne Blasberg, author of Eden: A Novel and The Nine
"A voice in an audiobook is as important as the content. Many narrators don't have the proper voice training. Since I love listening to audiobooks I knew exactly what I was looking for in a narrator. Marnye was overqualified for the job. Her acting history and education from Yale university shows in all the books she has narrated. Working with Marnye was a pure joy. She made notes about all of my wishes and did a peak performance narrating. As a result my audiobooks sales keep growing and the reviews are wonderful!"
-Otakara Klettke, bestselling author of Hear Your Body Whisper: How to Unlock Your Self Healing Mechanism and Detective Bella: The Case of Missing Max
"The moment I heard Marnye's voice as she echoed my written words, I knew she was the one. I was delighted beyond belief. Marnye brought my story to life. She understood the historical timeframe set in the 1850s, and the heart of Millie, the main character. I was astonished by her flawless play-by-play rendition of Muckeball and her ability to switch accents from Cockney, Welsh, Scots, Scousers and Geordies. Marnye brought out Millie's sweetness in sentimental times and pluckiness in others. This was the first of a 12 audiobook series, which Marnye and I will produce. I am thankful that I found such a gifted producer."
-Katherine Georges, author of Grapefruit Millie: Adventures of a Mousetta
"When Marnye submitted her proposal and sample reading to my audiobook inquiry, my gut told me right away that she was the one. But after I got to know her a little more through our communications and researching her work, I learned that not only was she the right one, she was THE PERFECT MATCH. Ironically, she even looks like the protagonist I had in my head when I wrote the manuscript. Now, I can’t imagine anyone else bringing my book to life like she did. Marnye brought such passion to the characters and even added a few exciting surprises to her delivery of the story. This was my first excursion into audiobook publishing. Marnye’s experience and professionalism were priceless as she led me through the process, offering great suggestions and quickly responding to special requests along the way. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
-Terry Stafford, Author of Strings of Faith
"Marnye is an amazing narrator with a beautiful voice. She is a consummate professional. One of the best in the business. Strongly recommended!"

"Marnye (Young) Hull did such a fabulous job of bringing my characters to life that I found myself forgetting I wrote the story and just enjoyed listening. She made me laugh and cry, which is amazing, since I knew what was going to happen."
- Carmen DeSousa, author of Down On Her Luck: Alaina's Story (What's Luck Got to do With It Book 2)
"I couldn't trust my first novel to just anyone, but when I heard Marnye's voice, I knew I was in the very best hands. Her smooth and refined delivery brought Walland to life in a way I hadn't thought possible, and my audiobook has gotten rave reviews as a result. I can't wait to hear what she does with my second book this fall"
-Andrea Thome, author of The Hesse Creek Series
"Marnye was an absolute pleasure to work with! Her enchanting accents and thoughtful inflection brought a smile to my face every single time I listened to her narration of The Jilted Bride. From the moment I heard her audition, I was sold, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an audiobook narrator!"
-Kristen Reed, author of The Jilted Bride: A Footnote to Cinderella's Happiness (Fairetellings) (Volume 1)
"Marnye's voice is warm and soothing, and the moment that I heard it, my words had a new found meaning. I knew instantly that I was dealing with a professional that took her job very seriously. Excellent tonality and range bring drama, tension and releases to the story. All changes were done instantly to what I had requested. In the past, I had worked with people that would complain and make excuses, so it was very refreshing. It was a real honour working with Marnye, and I hope that I am graced with another book that fits with the high standard of her delivery. A voice to help you raise the standard of your writing."
-Rev J Martin, author of God's Perfect Timing. Surrender, trust in him. Leave Your Stressful Life Behind
"To my delight, as I listened, it felt as though I was in the same room, as if a live play were carrying on before me. Marnye did an amazing job of breathing life into each and every character. Not once was I ever confused about which character was speaking. From Sherlock to Dr. Watson... Scotland Yard Detectives to Midwest Americans... Male and female... Young and old... Marnye managed a perfect voice for each of them.."
"For my first audio book review I was so brilliantly pleased. Marnye Young is beyond fabulous as she narrates this Sherlock Holmes mystery. I was immediately drawn in with her perfect accent, emotional character inflection and passion for the story for the fine characters we all know and love. I was amazed to know she is not British at all! A very brilliant and talented actress that can read me a story anytime! I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, more so than reading it years ago. Marnye makes it fun and exciting and I found my self smiling, laughing and intently listening to the story. One of my first thoughts was the main male characters and how she would tackle it? With ease, grace and a heck of a lot of talent. I recommend this story and anything Marnye narrates, she's amazing."
