"I sort of feel like I may have a crush on her voice."
- Bob Reiss, The Guilded Earlobe
I work regularly in various genres, but specialize in YA fantasy/magical realism... with a side of murder...
"Narrator Piper Goodeve anchors her self-reliant, pragmatic heroine with resolute tones and provides attuned portrayals of settlers, Native Americans, and other characters. Goodeve presents agonizing choices relating to love, family stability, and newfound knowledge with deliberate pacing and subtle emotional cues." - Audiofile Magazine , Veins of Gold, Tantor Audio
"Piper Goodeve delivers a clear and steady first-person narration of this charming story based on true events. Goodeve grunts as grumpy Mr. Hartwell, slurs in a Southern twang as the town drunk, and uses a steely voice for Drew. She is humorous as Bree's cheery party girl roommate with a penchant for dirty puns and as Bree's flamboyant neighbors with their "Oh, honey!" remarks. Goodeve is as convincing delivering a Siri-type voice giving weather reports as she is portraying a sarcastic and whining teen." - Audiofile Magazine, No Judgments by Meg Cabot, Harper

Narrating on a regular basis for Audible Studios, Tantor Media, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, HighBridge, Dreamscape, Podium Publishing, Blackstone Publishing, ACX, Findaway Voices, HarperAudio, Macmillan and from my home studio, Little Town Studios, I have done over 175 titles, (some under my pseudonym, available upon request for publishers/authors only) voiced hundreds of characters & used numerous dialects. I take pride in attention to detail, dialect work, thorough research (I'm a total nerd), and clean, professional audio. If you're an author, please feel free to contact me about full production packages for your book!
"Piper did a tremendous job capturing Allison's humor and tone. It's almost insane how much she sounds like my internal voice for Allison." Madeleine Roux, Author, Allison Hewitt is Trapped
"Her voice is perfect for Allison, not the sultry seductress, or the stoic stateswomen, but just a solid everywoman. Her characterizations are strong as well, whether it is the soft English tones on the radio, or an ornery horny doctor, she finds the right tone for them, without making them into caricatures." - Bob Reiss, The Guilded Earlobe
"Characters, concept, narration, all of it was great. Perfect match between the tone of the narrator and the luridly poetic imagery."-SFaudio.com, Monsters by Lilith Saintcrow in the compilation Chicks Kick Butt
"Piper made every character feel brand new to me (and that's saying something, considering how much time I spent thinking and writing about them). I loved the way she voiced Hannah -- it was like she intuitively understood her character the same way I did. I had never truly "heard" her voice before - in terms of not being able to separate it from my own - but Piper made her feel distinct and real and nuanced. It was like I was seeing her as a separate entity (from myself) for the first time." -Kelly Quindlen, Author, Her Name in the Sky
"Piper Goodeve, does a wonderful job with the American and the British voices as well as a variety of male and female characters. I have added her to my mental list of narrators to watch for." - Audible Addiction review, London Bound by Amy Daws
"Piper sent this audio over the top in my opinion. She breathed life in to the story and elevated it which is always the sign of a great narrator to me. Piper's ability to be a vocal chameleon and bring realism and emotion to both male and female characters is uncommon in the audiobook world and makes me seek her books out." - Lydia Rella, Aural Fixation, London Bound by Amy Daws
