Emily has been acting since her first performance at age 7. She has been working in audio books for over 15 years with nearly 200 books to her credit, including fiction and non-fiction works.
She enjoys challenging herself with new characters, dialects, and languages which shows in her beautiful performances.
She is talented versatile and has many different types of books to choose from. On my scale of 1-4, I would say that Emily is a 4.
One of my first experiences of Emily’s work came from her readings of one of my favorite authors, Anne McCaffrey.
If you love dragon’s, especially dragons of the intelligent, not violent species, then you can’t do much better than Anne McCaffrey’s Pern Series dragons.
These 2 books come later in the series and are written by Anne McCaffrey and her son Todd McCaffrey. Published in 2011 and 2012, these are a continuation of the original series that I began reading in the 1980’s.
The Pern series is a great example of books that audio narration raises to a whole new experience level. Especially when you have an experienced fiction narrator such as Emily Durante.
Whether you enjoy fantasy/sci-fi fiction or not, Emily is one narrator that you should give a try.
Some other books narrated by Emily that might interest are;
The Midnight Twins trilogy by Jacquelyn Mitchard
Vision in White by Nora Roberts
Solomon’s Oak by Jo-Ann Mapson
Chicken Soup for the Soul; Like Mother, Like Daughter by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen
Lakota Woman by Mary Crow Dog
Last Exit in New Jersey by C.E. Grundler
Just to name a few. With over 200 to choose from, that’s a trifling few, but doubtless there is something for everyone.
So give Emily a try and let us know what you think. We are always interested in your comments and concerns.
Thank you for reading and as always, Happy Listening!
