Haney Gullett, a former Dayton Daily News writer and editorial assistant, says she developed a love of literature from her parents, Sue Kauth, now of Eaton, and Tom Johnson, now of Beavercreek.
“I’ve always wanted to narrate audio books, ever since I was a little girl reading the Chronicles of Narnia into my mom’s tape recorder,” she said. “And to do a difficult, important novel like this, that dealt with trauma, atrocity and human resilience was a baptism by fire. Not to mention the half-a-dozen European and African accents it called for. But it’s what I love, and I can’t wait to do more of them.”
Once a fixture in Dayton’s music scene and Dayton Daily News club and bar reviewer, Haney Gullett and her husband, musician Steven Gullett, moved to Los Angeles in September of 2007.
Haney Gullett currently works mostly as a screen writer and voice artist. She occassionally edits books and works as an actress. She appeared in the Science Channel mini series “Alien Encounters.”
Her voice work includes Zombie Radio Show, the upcoming indie film The Bang Bang Brokers and webisodes for toymaker MGA Entertainment.
Haney Gullett has also done voice work for a Betty Ford Clinic educational series.
