Narrating audiobooks is a natural extension of Amy’s acting background. Her strengths lie in 1st Person narratives and she has an ear for assimilating accents easily. Publishers and clients include Orange Sky Audio, Brilliance Audio, Audible Studios, Spoken Realms and several independent authors via ACX & Findaway Marketplace.
Amy is a member of and volunteer ambassador for the APA (Audiobook Publishers Association). Since her name is quite common (there are 2 other Amy Johnsons on Audible), she started using Carolyn A. Lee for a handful of titles. After listening to the sound advice of Sean Pratt, she is now mainly under Amy J. Johnson and a pseudo for a few risqué titles. Her StudioBricks booth is pet-friendly. . .until they snore.
