Board of Directors
Shannon Parks (a.k.a. Marguerite Gavin) has been a professional audiobook narrator for over twenty years with over 500+ titles, numerous Audie nominations and Earphones awards, and a devoted fan following. She has been described as a “genre-defining narrator” by Audible.com; having a “sonorous voice, rich and full of emotion” and as having the “coveted ability to disappear as the narrator, letting the story take the limelight it deserves”in AudioFile Magazine. Her narration spans nearly every genre from mystery, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and children’s fiction to a huge variety of nonfiction and documentary work. She is also a seasoned theater veteran, acting in and directing hundreds of productions. As a highly respected acting teacher, she was on the graduate acting faculty at Catholic University of America; directed children of all ages in Shakespeare for many years; and now coaches narrators in the art of acting the audiobook. She is the lucky mom of two (almost grown-up!) children. Shannon is blessed to live at the Delaware seashore where she can usually be found in her recording studio, at the theater, or frolicking in the ocean. Proud member of SAG/AFTRA/AEA.
