Janina Edwards

Janina Edwards is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch Schools of the Arts. She was born in Chicago, soaked in New York City’s African and West Indian accents for eleven years, and for the past twenty years has swum in the swagger of the south (Atlanta, GA). As a result, she excels in portraying authentic characters and voices the African Diaspora. She recorded her first audiobook in 1987, and her work has received two Earphones awards. Multiple titles have been SOVAS and Audie Award nominees.
