Piper Goodeve - retouched for web_edited


Piper grew up in rural New Hampshire, the daughter of an accountant and a teacher, with a younger sister, a horse, three cats, and a black lab named Curly who carried logs from the woodpile into the house on cold winter nights so the humans didn't have to.  She started acting at the age of six at the American Stage Festival and Andy's Summer Playhouse, and studied extensively in her living room with teachers like Lily Tomlin, Betty Buckley, and the movie Beaches.

Now, Piper is an actress, teacher, director, and audiobook narrator. As a narrator, she has recorded works by Meg Cabot, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Alison Bechdel, R.L Stine, and John Irving, as well as classics by L.M Montgomery and Thornton Wilder. She has narrated over 350 titles for major publishers including Audible Studios, Audible Theater, Harper, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, and Tantor. A four-time Audie Award Finalist, one-time winner, a SOVAS Award nominee, and a three-time Earphones Award winner (Love at First Psych by Cara Bastone, Truths I Never Told You by Kelly Rimmer, and Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel) Piper's narration has also been featured in Kirkus, YALSA, and Booklist.


She has directed audiobooks read by Kathryn Grody, Amandla Stenberg, Art Garfunkel, and Audra McDonald, and others.


As an actress, Piper has performed Off-Broadway and in regional theaters across the country, London and Canada, and earned a Drama League Award Nomination for originating the role of Anne in Anne of Green Gables. Training: NYU; Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London; MFA in Acting from Brown University/Trinity Rep.


Proud member of SAG-AFTRA & Actors Equity & Canadian Equity.  

Piper is married to actor & narrator Gabriel Vaughan, and their somewhat ridiculous meet cute was featured in the Sunday Styles section of the New York Times.
