It was a pleasure lending my voice to this Harper Kids ad for the book Dear Boy, the follow up to the best-selling children’s book Dear Girl. The agency was looking for a male counterpoint to the ad for Dear Girl and I had fun matching the tone of the lovely female narrator for that.
This epic YA adventure by Grace Blair and Laren Bright was a blast to bring to life for The Audio Flow. With a young Albert Einstein as the protagonist and a myriad of fascinating characters (and about a dozen different accents) it was both a challenge and pleasure to tackle. Though it’s labeled as YA, this is a great listen for adults as well.
I am thrilled to have been selected as the recipient of the 2019 Mark Twain Narrator Scholarship to the Hear Now Festival in Kansas City. As the scholarship winner, I will be mentored by the “Ginger Yoda”, award-winning audiobook narrator Sean Allen Pratt.
On Saturday night, June 8th, I will be reading the Mark Twain article “Those Blasted Children”, a darkly comic, somewhat violently sarcastic article chronicling Twain’s disdain for the children inhabiting the Lick House Hotel where he was staying in San Francisco.

Versatile, authentic & engaging with a hint of wry edge.
I am a professional, union (SAG-AFTRA/Actor’s Equity) multi-media performer with over 35 years of experience.
I provide voiceover reads that range from conversational to enthusiastic, young, quirky and hip, to smooth, resonant and sexy. Ask me about my character voices and accents!
Hailing from the Windy City (neutral American accent included) I spent the past 30 years in sunny Los Angeles, developing my skills and working on stage, screen and in the booth. I’ve now ventured Southeast to Atlanta, where I’m settling in and re-adjusting to weather I haven’t had since I was a kid. And bugs. Happily, my newly built professional studio keeps me safe from both.
Curt delivers spec-“cat”-ular performance...His characterization is extremely engaging.
Thank you again for the awesome narrating. I think the readers are going to love how you brought the characters to life! You are the voice of Torin!
Curt Bonnem’s voice...is a soothing balm after a hectic day at work. Thank you for making my commute so much better this past week.
