Rebecca Thomas is an audiobook narrator, voice actor, and writer with a taste for science fiction and fantasy storytelling. A former math, science, and writing teacher, she spent several years teaching while engaging with the performing arts in her free time. Her background and experience allow her to quickly assess a production’s workflow and find her place.
Since 2011, Rebecca has narrated and produced over two dozen audiobooks, including the Daring Girls Project, a collection of children’s classics featuring girl protagonists who are brave, compassionate, and curious. She’s also an award-winning audio dramatist, channeling her confident, youthful gravitas and her love of geeky genres and arts into playing a variety of clever, commanding, and frequently sarcastic characters. Between audio projects, Rebecca writes short stories and novellas, preparing to brave the worlds of traditional and independent publishing. When she’s not working, she’s reading, watching cartoons and action movies, and drinking tea…sometimes all at the same time.
Beyond the studio, Rebecca blogs about independent learning, communities of practice, and her own learning journey at Genius in Transition. She has taught in various regional history and science museums, planetaria, and after-school science, math, and writing programs, often developing or contributing to educational programming and show production. She also independently developed and produced the YouTube EDU channel Dead Bunny Guides.
Moving forward, Rebecca is looking to broaden her horizons by getting involved with audio description, transmedia, and interactive media.
