Who I Am

Jennifer Jill Araya has been listening to audiobooks since she was a young child, and the fact that she now gets to narrate audiobooks for a living is a dream come true. Jennifer’s training as an opera singer and orchestral cellist lend a musicality and depth of understanding to her narration that help bring her authors’ stories to life. She loves nothing more than giving life and breath to the printed word. When she’s not narrating, Jennifer can be found hiking, biking, running, or generally exploring her home city of Cincinnati with her husband Arturo (aka “Partner in Crime”) and their two children.


My Work

Below is a sample of my audiobook titles. For a full listing, please visit Audible.




"Minds of Men" by Kacey Ezell

MindsOfMen “Ms. Araya deserves a great deal of credit for the strength of this Audible volume. Whereas one could not state that Minds of Men is perfect, Ms. Araya's reading, diction, and pronunciation are about as close as I've heard in listening to over three dozen audiobooks. Indeed, I hope that Ms. Ezell has gotten some sort of agreement with Ms. Araya, as I don't think she'll be an "unknown" voice actress / novel producer for long.” – James Young, Independent Author


"Honey Kisses" by Verna Clay

honeyKisses "Jennifer Jill Araya breaths life into this story with her wonderful narration. I love her voices, each with their own personality and style. There are a lot of characters in this book, and she is able to easily differentiate between each one which makes the listen enjoyable. Her voice is so easy to listen to, I can't wait for the next one!" – Patricia, Audible Listener


"A Life Unfolds in the City" by Ruth G. Zavitsanos

aLifeUnfolds "I listened to this book in 2 days. I could not wait to hear how the story unfolded. The characters are so alive! One of the best books I've read in a long time." – Cindy Maultsby, Audible Listener


"Death by Crockpot" by Linda West

dbc "Jennifer Jill Araya performed a deft, adroit job as she traipsed though the pages of the book. Simply, a perfect bit of narration!" – Lonnie Moore, Audible Listener


"As a publisher, finding quality narrators for my audio books is extremely important to me. Jennifer Jill Araya has been outstanding to work with. A consummate professional, she always does her best to get things right, the first time, and is exceedingly easy to work with. The most important question you might ask is, "Would I work with her again?" I already am. She's that good." – Chris Kennedy, Chris Kennedy Publishing
