5 Questions with “The Kitty with the Itty-Bitty Tail” Narrator Stephanie Belinda Quinn

kittycoveraudio-loHere at Who Chains You Books, we are always in awe of the talent of our book narrators, and Stephanie Belinda Quinn—narrator of The Kitty with the Itty-Bitty Tail—is no exception.

She gives the audience a sneak peek into her world on her website: “I’m a word-slinger and all-around dippy gal who creates voices chock-full of goosepimply warm-and-fuzzies, soaked through with bust-a-gut-funny. If you and your kids have video games, there’s a good chance you’ve spent time with me in your house and you didn’t even know it.

I lend a hand to mega-talented producers, directors, production companies, game developers, animation studios, toy makers, publishers, ad agencies, and other need-a-great-voice types worldwide by creating character voices that attract die-hard fans so they can make major moolah doing what they love to do.”

We asked her five questions, so we could get to know her better, and now you can too.

Here’s what she told us:

StephanieQuinn1. How did you get into book narration, and how long have you been doing it?

I combined my love of theater with my desire for a home business, and decided voice acting was perfect. I built a recording studio in my home, learned audio production, and was in business. I’ve been at it for about seven years now.

2. How many books have you narrated?

Eighty-three. (What? Wow!)

3. What made you choose The Kitty with the Itty-Bitty Tail to narrate?

Children’s projects are my specialty, and I love kitty-cats. Plus I knew it would be an awesome book to record the second I saw the title. ( I mean, come on!) When I read the story, said awesomeness was confirmed, and I was thrilled to get started. It’s a great story.

4. What other fun projects have you taken on with your narration skills?

I specialize in audiobooks, video games, animation, and toys, so pretty much everything I record is fun. I especially like voicing animals and other non-humans (unicorns, space aliens, fairies) because I get to be really creative. I voiced a crab once that still makes me giggle. 

5. What do you do to cut loose and have fun, besides narration?

I have a kitty of my own ( Little Angel, see her above) and a wonderful husband who both cut loose with me. I’m also a tap dancer, artist, musician, stargazer, and metal-detecting treasure hunter.

adoptingadelecoverloAdopting Adele has been a smash hit—well, for Who Chains You of course! (Not in comparison to the big publishers, eh-hem…)

Here’s just one of the wonderful reviews the book has already received on Amazon:

“An author-illustrator combo to watch out for! This surprised me because I expected to be bored or mildly amused, but turns out I was impressed both by the story and the illustrations, which were perfectly appropriate for the text. I am way outside the age group for this, but I think kids will enjoy it. Highly recommended.”—Kelly

You can listen to a small sample of the audio right from the book page on Amazon, below.

And remember, the book is also available in paperback, Kindle, and KindleUnlimited.

About the Book:

In a shelter Adele lingered in a cage made of glass, where she patiently waited as people walked past. With delicate ears she listened each day, to the mewing of kittens and puppies at play. Curiously twitching her pretty pink nose, she sat groomed to perfection from whiskers to toes. Her tiny eyes glistened like two glossy stones, yet still, sweet Adele would remain all alone.

Dogs were adopted, people cooed over cats. Even hamsters found homes; why not a nice rat?

Perfect for childhood reading for ages 4 and up, Adopting Adele promotes a happier world for all our animal friends. Who Chains You Books is dedicated to helping our planet’s companions and wildlife and all who advocate on their behalf.
