Linda Graves is an actor, voice talent, and audiobook narrator based in Los Angeles. She is a member of SAG/Aftra, Actor’s Equity, Audiobook Publisher’s Association, PANA, and Theatre of NOTE.
Linda moved to Los Angeles from her hometown of Pocatello, Idaho to pursue an acting career and was soon cast in a small role on Dynasty. She continued her college studies ultimately switching her degree from Acting to Arts Administration. This led to an Operation’s and Marketing Director position at a 1400-seat venue in Southern California which she eventually ran as the Director of the Performing Arts Center while continuing to also work as an actor. During this daily commute through Los Angeles, Linda became addicted to listening to audiobooks. So, she recently left the Performing Arts position to pursue audiobook narration..
Whether it’s voicing a variety of canines in a Young Adult book or a dysfunctional family sitting around the dinner table, Linda is most happy when bringing to life a wide variety of characters. Her love of accents led her to narrate a travel adventure book requiring many accents including British RP, American Southern, Spanish, Caribbean, Irish, Scottish and Mexican. She has also enjoyed recording Children’s books, Romance, Mystery and Thrillers, Multi-cast projects, and first person Non-Fiction.
Authors that she has worked with have described her unique and memorable voice as “captivating, arresting, yet calming,” “youthful but with wisdom” and “simultaneously full of vulnerability and strength.” And. . . “most importantly, she delivered my story with heart and was a joy to work with!”
When not recording, Linda loves traveling with her husband, playing with her rescue pup, knitting, gardening, and reading, reading, reading (which, of course, means listening to MANY audiobooks)!
