the Calm before the Storm
Gary Bennett is an award-winning SAG-AFTRA audiobook narrator with a passion for truly giving the listener a front-row seat to the story. He’s narrated over 150 audiobooks (so far!) for publishers including Blackstone, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, Harper Audio, Hachette Audio, Tantor, Dreamscape, Podium Audio, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and others.
Gary has trained with top coaches for narration and accents and dialects, records in his professional home studio, and he loves performing multiple accents (British, Scottish, Italian and Eastern European are his favorites) as well as multiple and complex characters (spies, wizards, trolls, ogres, vampires, and conflicted heroes & villains are always fun) .
He's a huge fan of thrillers and urban fantasy, and also loves recording science-fiction, mysteries, romance, and non-fiction. (He's also a proponent of the Oxford Comma!)
Born and raised in California and then in Bozeman, Montana, Gary now calls the greater Seattle area his home, and he's a huge fan of the Seattle Seahawks!
He’s an avid outdoor enthusiast and relishes taking advantage of living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. When he’s not in his home studio, you might find Gary flying over the Puget Sound (he’s a Private Pilot) or finding inspiration as an aspiring musician.
Gary also narrates under the pseudonym Liam Sanderson.
