Description
A honeyed voice that lends itself to smooth and silky or authoritative and crisp. Excellent fast accurate read, or gentle soft sell.
A native of Derbyshire, she has a great range of characters and accents. Her R.P. is precise and reassuring: her timbre is warm and upbeat. She is very versatile, always professional and lovely to work with.

Accents include: native Derbyshire, Notts, Yorks, Lancs, Geordie, Liverpool, Welsh, Westcountry, RP, North American, Australian + others.
Characters/Impersonations: Silky (like Joanna Lumley), Eccentric / older granny characters (Hyacinth Bucket) + can create whatever character is required.

Award winning audiobook narrator (AudioFile Earphones award and Library Journal Award).
Here In Berlin by Christina Garcia review: "Narrator Joan Walker doesn't attempt to give each of the many characters a particular voice. Instead, she gives each of them a personality and a mood ranging from seductive intimacy to cold fury. ...an emotional saga held together by Walker's masterful interpretation." (Clip in demos)
"Seldom have I enjoyed a story so much! Her voices and narrative style make this wonderful story [Britt Marie Was Here] even more enjoyable, and I will be deeply sorry when the story has ended. I am officially a Joan Walker fan and would listen to an audio book just to hear her narrate!"
