Amanda Leigh Cobb is a Broadway actress, teacher, and producer who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Hugh Jackman, Mike Nichols, Ethan Hawke, and Morgan Freeman. An Earphones Award winner for the bestselling Teen Harlequin novel Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid, she is perhaps better known for her narration of several Jayne Ann Krentz novels, including River Road, Trust No One, and All Night Long.
Listen to the first chapter of All Night Long.
Cobb’s background and range of accents lend themselves to many genres, from steampunk (Brass & Bone) and romance (Wrangled) to fantasy (Beautiful Danger) and crime fiction (The Orphans of Race Point). Some of her favorite projects include multi-narrated collaborations such as Victoria Christopher Murray’s heartbreaking novel Never Say Never as well as the incredible story of Japanese-American identity revealed in The Sisters of Heart and Snow by Margaret Dilloway.
Cobb also narrated Adi Alsaid’s latest novel, Never, Always, Sometimes. This narration, as well as her well-regarded recording of Alsaid’s debut novel, Let’s Get Lost, prove that Ms. Cobb’s exceptional skills as a narrator are not limited to the romance genre.
“Amanda Cobb hits all the right notes in her narration, showing us various facets of Leila’s personality—her spunk, charm, and pensiveness as she searches for her identity, as well as the intensity of her crush on a boy she’s just met. Cobb varies her accents, tone, and pacing for an engaging listen. Listeners will be hooked to the end.”—AudioFile review of Earphones Award winner Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
“Cobb maintains the tension in this dramatic story as well as providing a lightness in tone that brings out the flirtatious banter between the two sleuthing protagonists. Cobb’s well-tempered pitch modulations and pacing effectively convey the tension and animosity that grow among the townspeople as murders take place and each of them becomes a possible suspect.”—M.F. ©2014 by AudioFile
Outside the audiobook recording studio, Ms. Cobb also enjoys a successful stage career, having performed as Baby in the touring company of Dirty Dancing the Musical and more recently as Desdemona in a Pittsburgh Public Theater production of Othello. She is also credited with an impressive string of screen roles.
