Narrated by: Paul Cram

Paul Cram’s young-with-a-touch-of-gravel voice is a bit newer to the world of audio than it is to other acting forms. Listening fans will hopefully be excited by several upcoming audio book titles in the next year being voiced by him. You can listen to his audio books that are currently available right now through Amazon, iTunes, and Audible.

Cram was most recently seen on set for the feature film WILSON opposite Woody Harrelson, and the indie film ANNIVERSARY shot in Maine, USA by movie director Jim Cole.

When not on a movie set or in a recording booth, Paul can be found deep-frying chicken wings with his sister in her kitchen, or quarreling about pop-culture with his little brother around one the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota. You can find his website Paul Cram Actor or IMDB.

Also, be sure to sign up for Paul’s monthly newsletter loaded with contest prizes, movie releases, and of course audio book narration details as they become available.
