Author and voice over artist Trista Shaye

Join me for a new Instagram Live series!

“Amanda Interviews…!” is all about connecting homeschool families and students with people in interesting professions and/or creative outlets.

My first guest is experienced audiobook narrator, podcast drama actress, children’s author, fantasy author, and serial hobbyist…Trista Shaye!

If that name sounds familiar, it should!

In addition to narrating over 100 audiobooks–including her own animal based chapter book series for kids–Trista is the voice of the Collar Cases universe.

Which, by the way, the audio sample for Case of the Robbed Recipe is now available here!

If your kids are interested in writing or voiceover work, they will love talking with Trista. You can submit questions to me ahead of time by email ( or enter them live on the chat.

The replay will be available after-the-fact on my IGTV channel, but you really want to be there live! I’m sponsoring a signed, hardback copy of The Backwards Kitty, the first book in her animal series.

(Contest is limited to contiguous US residents only.)

Join us Monday, August 30th 2021 @ 6:30 PM EST on IG Live.
