Let’s tell your story
Mary began narrating and publishing audiobooks in 2016. A multi-published author of romantic comedy and mystery, she found a new avenue of bringing characters to life with distinct accents and attitudes. Debra Holland, NYT & USA Today best-selling author of the Montana Sky series and founder of Montana Sky Publishing, recruited Mary to narrate and produce the Harper Ranch historical western romance series available on Audible.
Mary’s expressive, versatile voice invites listeners into a story with a well-timed joke or a new idea that inspires them to see their world from a new perspective. Her experience as an author and journalist brings a natural sense of timing that heightens tension or gives a moment of relief until the action ratchets up again. Her curiosity and sense of exploration make her an engaging companion for listeners interested in spiritual self help, memoir, spirituality and Christian topics.
As an author, she understands more than most the emotional and financial investment a writer makes when entrust a producer with their book. She does her due diligence through research and works closely with her authors to ensure that she understands and translates their voice and vision into the audiobook. Mary can also provide direction in marketing the audiobook and building a listenership through online book tours, ads and social media.
Mary is available to work with independent authors and publishers directly or through ACX & Findaway Voices.

“I received many auditions, and I chose Mary Castillo to narrate as I immediately felt she captured the spirit of the book. It was not an easy task: a lengthy volume with many characters from different places. Her accents, intonations and interpretation of them were brilliant, and she brought the book to life. Mary always read with cognizance of the scene and presence. The tone, pace, rhythm and style were just right. I was so delighted with the reading that I asked her to work with me again on another project! The quality audio recording was excellent, and any requested modifications made to the narration were done swiftly and perfectly.”
