My audiobook narrator, Meg Price and I are getting closer each day to launching the audiobook edition of Babble into the world. Wooho! But we could use your help in selecting the audio sample that you feel best captures the essence of the story and would help perspective readers decide to pick up a copy. In case you haven’t yet read the book, (or you’ve read so many books lately you can’t quite remember what Babble is about), here’s a short synopsis.
One young boy is the key to the universe.
Upon the Towers of Babel, the people of the Earth scattered, and silence fell. Now, on the brink of a new age, the human race leaps forward into the evolutionary void and changes the course of human history forever. For young Bobbie Cagle, the normal difficulties of growing up are overshadowed by his unique condition. Bobbie’s inability to communicate normally is misdiagnosed for years as autism, and masks the great part in history he is destined to play.His unique ability to create beautiful works of art is just the tip of the iceberg. Coveted by those who would use him for their own purpose, Bobbie, and his mother flee their home out of desperation and fear. In the course of their escape, the truth behind Bobbie’s gift and the effects it may have on the planet begin to the reveal themselves, as the future of the humanity hangs in the balance.

Meet Meg — Narrator Extraordinaire
My name is Meg Price. I have grown up surrounded by voice-over recording and audio production my entire life. It is a family business for me. And I knew at a young age this was where I wanted to be. I went to a specialty high school (magnet school) for theatre and I also attended college with a major in theatre.
Most of my experience in voice over work is in narration. This is where my true passion lies. I love to make the words come alive and off the page. From a young age, storytelling has been my passion. When I was introduced to audiobooks I knew I had found my home. Other experiences include commercials and telephone prompts.
My passions are my family, my two furbabies, the outdoors, and making the most out of life. If you think we would work well together please feel free to message me about your next project!
But that’s just Meg’s Bio
Meet the real Meg Price as she and I talk about how she became a professional narrator and the challenges and rewards of being a narrator. (I apologize for the sound of my voice. I don’t usually sound like someone trying to talk under water. The good news is tthat Meg sounds great and she does most of the talking.)
