Recording Luckenbooth by Jenni Fagan

I love anything Gothic and creepy, so it was great fun to record my chapters for a multi-narrator audio version of the award-winning Jenni Fagan’s Luckenbooth, an incredibly intricate and imaginative novel centring on one cursed tenement in Edinburgh’s Old Town.  One of my sections involves a séance, which was a fantastic vocal challenge to work on: keeping all the different speakers (dead and alive!) clear for the listener and keeping the tension in the scene without being tempted into any Hammer House of Horror voices.  There is also a brief appearance by a parrot, my first foray into voicing anything ornithological.
