Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 4 aka #30DaysOfThanks2015. I had so much fun doing this last 3 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year. Switching it up this year with 3 posts a day–1 author, 1 narrator, and 1 blogger that really touched me this year. I didn’t have room to thank everyone because really my life overfloweth with awesome bloggers, books, and listening enjoyment. I tried to fit in some new people who have come into my life/reading enjoyment the last year while still shouting out my tribe of many years. I am so glad that I didn’t have room because it means my life ROCKS!
Mary Jane Wells
Mary Jane Wells is a new to me narrator this year and I LOVE her narration. I listened to the Brides of Wishmore series by Cathy Maxwell. She did such an AMAZING job. I found out that she narrated Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypes so I will be getting that one too. After spending some time on her website I found out she is really one talented lady. One thing I was really impressed with was Heroine The Play . Spend a little time and click that link. What a great talented lady.
About Mary Jane Wells (from her website)
I am a British actress, writer and voiceover artist. Thanks for dropping by!
Here’s some self trumpety stuff…
I trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and then did theatre for 12 years in the UK and Europe. I first came to the US with French classic, The Red Balloon at the Mark Taper some years ago. I returned later that year with a solo show, Martha for the Annenberg Centre, toured to the Kennedy centre and the New Victory on Broadway, and the International showcase in Philidelphia where I won the Victor Award.
Before I left the UK, I worked as a series recurring on BBC’s Half Moon Investigates and narrated BBC3’s TV show, My Childhood which won a Scottish BAFTA. My subsequent visit to the US was courtesy of the Smithsonian with Cuhulainn the hound of Ulster, and I was then invited to join the rep company in Honolulu theatre for a year, playing Aerial in The Little Mermaid.
Since then, I live both in LA and in Manchester, UK. I spend my time shooting, writing and voiceovering wherever I am. I do voice matching and voicework full time – current campaigns are for Jet 2, Sunny Finance, some work for NASA and How To Train Your Dragon 2. Check out my mobile game app, Melissa and the Heart of Gold on Itunes – we got over a millions subscribers in the first month of our launch.
I have voiced about 30 audiobook, including the memoirs which have been sourced as the inspiration behind Downtown Abbey.
‘Josie Marks’ is my guest-starring character in HBO’s 3rd season of The Newsroom, and I play Princess, one of the 6 bitchy leads of Crazy Bitches. Watch this space for Crazier Bitches, coming soon!
Oh – I also play the accordion pretty badly, but with gusto.
