James Anderson Foster is an award-winning narrator who was one of those kids that actually lettered in drama way back in High School (and if you ask nicely, he might even tell you just how far back that was). Since that time, he’s done most of his acting behind a microphone, and has narrated audiobooks for a variety of publishers, across nearly all genres – both fiction and non. He was born and raised on the west coast, and even though he’s lived in the Midwest for over a decade now, still considers Oregon “home.”
James received an AudioFile Earphones award for his recording of Whiplash, and a total (so far!) of TEN Voice Arts Awards nominations: In 2015, James was a finalist in three categories for the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences Voice Arts Awards (Audiobook Mystery, Audiobook Science Fiction, and Audiobook Fantasy), and again in 2016 (Audiobook Non-Fiction, Audiobook Inspirational/Faith-Based Fiction, and Audiobook Business or Education), AND THEN AGAIN in 2017 (Audiobook Business or Education, Audiobook Biography, Audiobook Mystery, and Audiobook Fiction).
In 2016, James narrated one of the top 20 highest rated audiobooks on all of audible.
James has been praised for his conversational delivery and ability to sound exactly like the voice you were imagining in your head.
