A lifelong New Englander, Sara Sheckells grew up shuttling between an indie bookstore and an antiques shop. Storytelling, in all its forms, drew her to dabble in drama and cobble together a patchwork of studies in radio, television, and writing. She was a radio host and performed as a costumed tour guide before launching a long-term career in academia.  Sara came to audiobook narration as an avid listener and long-time pupil of vocal performance. Her previous experiences working in counseling and course instruction further fuel her delivery, which is equal parts empathetic and authoritative.  An Earphones Award winning narrator for ensemble narration, Sara is featured among AudioFile Magazine’s Voices to Know. Forever bookish, Sara has a fondness for magical realism, memoirs, thrillers, feminist bits and pieces, spooky stuff, and anything featuring dogs or witches.
