Heather Henderson is an award-winning audiobook narrator and voice actress with a 20-year career in literary and performing arts.
After her professional debut as an extra in Animal House, Heather spent eight years repairing her reputation by studying acting, writing, and literature at the University of Oregon (BA), University of Washington (MA), and the Yale School of Drama (MFA and DFA). Heather has worked as a theater dramaturg, publicist, and writing instructor, and her arts reviews have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the country.
In 1995, Heather decided to follow her passion for voice acting. (She was talking a lot anyway, so hey, why not get paid?) Since then, she has brought her rich, resonant voice and many characters to hundreds of commercial voiceovers. She has also recorded audiobooks for Harper Audio, HighBridge, Blackstone, Oasis, eChristian, Post-Hypnontic Press, and Audible, Inc., among other publishers. Her narrations include the NYT bestseller Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan, and Sharon Creech’s The Boy on the Porch, which was named one of the Best Children’s Audiobooks for 2013 by Audiofile Magazine. In the process, she has been honored to work with and learn from some wonderful producers, teachers, and coaches, including Grover Gardner, Bob and Debra Deyan, Pat Fraley, John McElroy, and Kate DeVore.
With narrator Judith West, Heather maintains AudioEloquence.com a popular pronunciation resource site for colleagues in the audiobook industry. She is a member of SAG-AFTRA.
Heather lives in Oregon, where she has way too many hobbies, including hiking and camping, birding, cooking, and canning. Her husband especially loves the cooking hobby.
