About

holter graham 2015

Holter Graham is an avid reader of science fiction, which surely helps him bring something extra to his performances of the audiobooks in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series. He’s even joined the author on book tour appearances, reading from the books, signing autographs, and posing for pictures. He brings passion to his portrayals of the gods in ACHERON , the twelfth book in the series: “Focusing on the core of each of the main characters, Graham directs the flow of the plot around their raw emotions. He gives the impression of barely being able to hold in their power while also allowing glimpses of their vulnerabilities.”–[2008]

Holter Graham recorded his first audiobook in 2004: It was Steven Sherrill’s edgy VISITS FROM THE DROWNED GIRL , and it remains one of his favorites. Only a year later, he received his first AudioFile Earphones Award for Lisa Gardner’s ALONE . Holter believes audiobooks are a good match for him because both his undergraduate and graduate degrees are in writing, and he feels he has “that extra love for words that goes beyond just liking to say them.” He enjoys doing accents, but when he narrated John Berendt’s CITY OF FALLING ANGELS , he and the producer/director decided he should give only the lilt of the Venetian dialect to avoid detracting from the story. Holter has recorded two of Stephen Frey’s financial thrillers, THE PROTÉGÉ and THE POWER BROKER, and just finished work on the fourth in the series, THE SUCCESSOR. He’s an avid reader of sci-fi and mysteries and listens to podcasts and shorter audiobooks, mostly poetry. He’s only begun to listen to longer audiobooks. He especially liked Oliver Wyman’s reading of A MILLION LITTLE PIECES, and considers Jim Dale an icon.

My Reviews

I am a HUGE fan of Holter’s narration of audiobooks!  I have listened to him narrate romance, urban fantasy, mystery, and horror. I pretty much never question picking up a book on audio if he is the narrator. He has the ability to pull off everything from tender moments to kick ass fighting scenes. If you have not had a chance to listen him to do narration–get on it. You will not be sorry!

Thank You Audiobook

  1. Not only do I love him as Charles, I also loved listening to him do Christine by Stephen King. I had decided I wanted to listen to some old school Stephen King and when I saw that he narrated that book, I decided that was the one I was going to start with. I really loved it.

  2. I have been meaning to get back into the Dark Hunter series and I think I might go the audio route, I’m so excited now! I also think that I’m going to listen to Lisa Gardner’s Alone. I hope his narration works for me and it did for you 🙂

  3. I haven’t had the pleasure of listening to his narration except in your samples. 🙂 I really like his voice and thought I had listened to him before but I think I only know the name from seeing him on your blog…lol. I really need to fix that!

      • I don’t hate UF, I just don’t like to read them, but if someone like him would read them to me I would be okay. 😉 I find listening to them works better for me. 🙂
