Arika Rapson (formerly Escalona) grew up devouring books and taking occasional breaks to be on TV or in the circus (long story). She went on to become a classically trained vocalist and composer, writing her first symphony at age eighteen.
After living in New York and then Spain, Arika returned to her native Pacific Northwest, eventually settling in Fall City, Washington, where she happily began recording audiobooks. As a narrator, she has performed a wide range of genres, from classics to contemporary thrillers, children's books, urban fantasy, and women's literature, as well as stranger-than-fiction true stories. Arika's voice has been heard by millions on national television, as well as on the radio, in video games, and as an ongoing voice for Amazon Kindle.
