Following a 12 year run as a long haul trucker, Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006 to continue the cultivation of his life long interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over 1,000 audio books while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been non-fiction, personal development, and spiritual growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most himself by the behind the scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audio book productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
