About James

Dubbed “the Hardest Working Man in Audiobooks,” James Anderson Foster is an Audie Nominated, multi-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.

James has received an Audie nomination, multiple AudioFile Earphones awards, and a total (so far!) of THIRTEEN Voice Arts Awards nominations.

In 2018, James was a finalist in the first annual Audiobook Listener’s Awards.

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.
