Marlene Soto,  created her business to help families turn into advocates for their children by writing a series of books. Marlene is a first-time self-published author who wants to provide literacy, interpretation, and resources to underprivileged children, schools, libraries, and children's hospitals. In her first self-published children's book, the story teaches trust, positive affirmations, and learning to see themselves for their abilities as opposed to focusing on their disabilities. The 6 disabilities in the book are Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Hearing Loss(DEAF), Muscular Dystrophy, and Rare Disease. The goal is not only to donate these books but to accept donations so she can travel from city to city to read to these children and have Q&A sessions. Marlene also offers Medical Interpretation in Spanish for our non-English-speaking supporters. To learn more please visit: The Swan Kids

Cindy is a rising audiobook narrator currently based out of Southwest Florida. Born and raised in New York City, she uses her distinct Nuyorican accent to bring diversity and authenticity to Hispanic characters in audiobooks. 

 

From being timid and quiet throughout childhood to working in customer service to reading out loud for the world to hear. Cindy left her long time job of being a well-loved customer service representative to pursue not only her dream of being home for her kids but her dream of working with books. 

 

Cindy has always enjoyed books and reading out loud to her children. During the pandemic, she downloaded a well-known social media app to distract from the everyday talk of the pandemic. She fell down the rabbit hole…until she found a video of an audiobook narrator working from home. 

 

She began researching and learning, then decided this was the dream job she didn’t know she could do. 

 

Now she has been training and practicing since 2020 and has not only completed 5 titles that are on sale now on Audible but she also continues to volunteer her time to create audiobooks for children with learning disabilities. 

 

Look out for three bilingual English/Spanish audiobooks she currently has in the works, coming soon!
