I did not expect that Hope would make me laugh and cry at words which had originally been my own. I’m grateful to her for taking the project so much to heart, and for breathing genuine feeling into every line she read.
Hope is the rare kind of artist who brings her audience with her on and into every journey. And she does so with spirit, focus and great versatility. She can just as successfully take on the role of your favorite teacher in an e-learning piece as she can paint an entire world of a novel, all with her voice. Her instinct, insight and sensitivity are palpable. Hope is also truly wonderful to work with. She’s collaborative and professional, a quick study and a creative force on any team.
Hope’s performance was stellar. Her smooth tone, pacing and ability to captivate the audience shows in her reviews. She was very easy to work with and completing the project ahead of time. I recommend Hope for audiobooks in any genre because she’s that good!
Hope Newhouse’s ability to bring my stories to life in French has opened new doors for my readers/listeners. Her expertise, professionalism, and amazing performances made the 6+ book series a breeze to complete. I look forward to collaborating with her on future productions and highly recommend her.
and International Bestselling Author
Directing Hope reading Rebel Chef was a real pleasure – she is one of the most prepared and fluent narrators I’ve ever worked with.
for Penguin Random House
Newhouse moves smoothly between English and French, effectively portraying an aging Frenchman, a bohemian actress, and the young and confused Margot. The prose in the novel is mesmerizing, and its delivery perfection.
review of The Margot Affair
Narrator Hope Newhouse offers a gentle performance of this serious audiobook about surviving the loss of a friend.
review of The Stepping Off Place
Originally from Boston, MA but now working from her home studio in Paris, France where she has lived for 13 years, Hope is equally at home voicing an American or une française. She has a stage background in children’s theater, musical theater and medieval farce, which she performed in French for about ten years. Her voice has been heard on commercials, in video games, cartoons, and institutional films but she is most proud of her work in audiobooks – a medium that combines her love of literature and her deep actor’s desire to play all the parts! Hope was nominated for Independent Audio Awards in 2020 and 2021 and has narrated fiction, literary fiction, memoir, romance, science fiction and young adult books for Penguin Random House, Harper Audio, The Audio Flow and Findaway Voices. She especially loves to narrate YA fiction and fantasy and books with lgbt themes.
Originaire de Boston aux États-Unis, Hope vit actuellement à Paris où elle travaille en français et en anglais. Elle a joué sur scène en France pendant dix ans et a enregistré de nombreuses voix off. Mais son coeur bat pour la narration de livres audio, un média qui combine son amour pour la littérature et son désir, en tant que comédienne, de jouer une infinité de rôles ! Hope a été nommée pour des Independent Audio Awards en 2020 et 2021. Elle apprécie particulièrement la narration de romans pour jeunes adultes, la fantasy et les fictions incluant des personnages LGBTQ+.
