New Books and Nominations

It’s been a busy month – I had five books out, and they’re all very different. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to narrate across so many genres, and to develop a special relationship with particular authors, especially in the case of a series like that by Holly Hunter or Alexander Larman.

  • Meet Me When my Heart Stops by Becky Hunter
  • The Missing Maid by Holly Hunter (first of a series)
  • Dracula Park by Dana Grigorcea
  • The Rebel Pianist of Majdanek by Nicola Pittam
  • Power and Glory by Alexander Larman (final book in a 3 book series)

In other news, I am very proud to mention two nominations, the results of which will be announced next month.  I’ve been shortlisted for Best Performance in the Factual category at The One Voice Awards (18 May). And ‘Conviction’ by Jack Jordan has been nominated for another award – ‘Crime Audiobook of the Year’ – part of the Fingerprint Awards at the Capital Crime Festival 2024 (30 May). I’m very grateful to the nominating committees and am keeping my fingers tightly crossed!

Audible Review – Six Tudor Queens: Katheryn Howard, the Tainted Queen by Alison Weir

“I learnt so much. This was fantastically researched and beautifully performed. Reminds you why books are so important.”

Audible Review – Papyrus by Irene Vallejo

“Narrator Sophie Roberts’s strong, polished, highly sophisticated voice effectively conveys the aura of fashionable society but maintains a firm narrative objectivity. Droll, fascinating, full of memorable characters and anecdotes, here is a perspective on a world and time that moved from drawing-room comedy to the private dramas of war and occupation.”

“This was brilliantly brought to life by the narrator, Sophie Roberts who tackled the French & Russian names with ease. A great way to entwine two biographies in such an entertaining way.”

Audible Review – Catherine the Great & Potemkin by Simon Sebag Montefiore

“I have had the pleasure of working with Sophie for many years, and that is a testament in itself to her standing in the audiobook world. Well prepared, reliable, accurate, exceptional characterisations. The only problem with her success, is trying to hire someone who has become so indispensable…”
