We are very lucky to have two professional actors read the stories and poems for the project. They are:

Natalie Barrett

Natalie trained in Acting at Queen Margaret University. She worked for 10 years in theatre and radio throughout the UK, but now prefers to be behind the microphone as a part-time voiceover artist and full-time mother! She is currently recording the voices for the second series of the award-winning cartoon ‘Gigglebug’, and has enjoyed working on various radio and TV advert campaigns including Dobbies, Bupa, M&Co and 32 Red.

Natalie lives by the sea with her photographer husband and their son. She plays roller derby and loves nothing more than cycling next to the beach, with her wee boy racing along ahead of her!

James Mackenzie

James trained at Queen Margaret University College Edinburgh.

He has worked extensively on stage for many theatre companies including The National Theatre of Scotland, and has performed all over the country in everything from Macbeth to Sunshine On Leith the musical.

On TV James is probably best known as Raven from the double BAFTA Award winning CBBC programme. His other TV credits include; River City (BBC) Danni’s House (CBBC) Still Game series 5 (Comedy Unit/BBC Scotland) Rebus & Taggart (STV). His voice can be heard on many commercial radio adverts for companies such as Scotrail, Irn-Bru, Scottish Poppy Appeal, and The Times newspapers.
