Shobha Tharoor Srinivasan
Author. National Award winning Voiceover Talent.
I am an author of children’s books, poet, editor, and nationally celebrated voice-over talent. I have also been a non-profit development professional who spent two decades as an advocate and fundraiser for persons with disabilities.
My life experiences inform my work. My voice over portfolio includes documentaries, educational programs, journalistic initiatives, and audio books.
I have published children’s books in India and the United States, including the award-winning Indi-Alphabet (Mango and Marigold), Prince with a Paintbrush: The Story of Raja Ravi Varma (Westland), It’s Time to Rhyme, (Aleph) and Parvati the Elephant’s Very Important Day (Harper Collins).
My writing has also been anthologized by Tulika Books, Solstice Publishing, and Skipping Stones magazine. My work has been showcased at book fairs and festivals and is part of Indian school curricula. My essays and reviews have been published in India Currents and Scroll.in. My first book for adults, Good Innings (Penguin), is being translated into Malayalam.
I am a non-union Voice Over talent based in Campbell, California with a natural and elegant speaking style. I can deliver the highest quality voice-over for all types of media at highly competitive rates. I have a home studio and am able to work remotely with clients all around the world.
I am available to read aloud from my stories and poems at schools, libraries, and at small private gatherings. I can edit and proofread scripts and texts. (MA in English Literature from Syracuse University)
