When I was first contacted by Helen Lloyd to audition for the short story ‘doG liveD’ written by Troll Dahl I was over the moon for three reasons.
First, I was honoured to be asked to participate in anything with Helen Lloyd (who I’m in slight awe of). Second, I’ve been wanting to narrate a truly scary story since I started this narration gig. Finally, I am so happy to be included in a volume of work alongside some of the narrators that I’ve loved listening to for years.
I immediately bought the book and proceeded to read it on the train on the way to a voice over job. To say I enjoyed it would be an understatement.
It would be more accurate to say I missed my stop I was so thoroughly caught up in it and embarrassed myself trying frantically to get back across London finally skidding in the door of the studio sideways mumbling something about incredible horror stories.
When I was asked to narrate ‘doG liveD’ I was ecstatic. It’s delightfully descriptive and creepy. There’s something about the way Troll Dahl creates an atmosphere that will ensure I have nightmares for a very long time. Brilliant!
