John Patrick Walsh is an experienced on-screen and voiceover actor as well as an audiobook narrator. Originally hailing from the East Coast, Walsh studied improv in Los Angeles with Bill Applebaum and appeared in several local stage productions before landing a role on General Hospital. From there he appeared in various TV and film roles including North Mission Road, 30 Rock and As the World Turns.
Relatively new to the audiobook industry, Walsh has narrated a wide variety of titles including the Hachette multi-voice sports memoir One Magical Sunday by Phil Mickelson. Other titles include Blackstone’s Gravity’s Century: From Einstein’s Eclipse to Images of Black Holes and Zondervan’s Life Changing Love. His voiceover work includes several corporate projects, industrial projects, TV promo spots and a film trailer.
While raising his family in both California and Connecticut, Walsh remains a New Yorker at heart – having graduated from Fordham University, engaged at Lincoln Center, married on Park Avenue and then becoming a Dad at Lenox Hill Hospital, not once but twice. In fact, being Matt and Tim’s Dad is “the very best role of all."
When he’s not busy performing, Walsh enjoys traveling with his family, coaching youth basketball and volunteering as a BookPal for the SAG Foundation. He’s also active with Saint Aloysius Church and The Gridiron Club in New Canaan, CT.

Currently Recording: Brave Heroes and Bold Defenders 50 True Stories of Daring Men of God by Shirley Raye Redmond, published by Dreamscape Media.
Meet men who have used their God-given talents to live out their faith to the fullest. They come from a variety of backgrounds, eras, and ethnicities, but each one has answered the Lord’s call on their life in bold and innovative ways.
Children of all ages will be inspired by the stories of
C.S. Lewis—professor and author of the influential Chronicles of Narnia series
Zhang Boli—Chinese dissident, journalist, and Christian pastor
Richard Allen—former slave and founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church
Tim Tebow—athlete, Heisman trophy winner, and outspoken follower of Christ
Father Damien—priest who dedicated his life to helping lepers in Hawaii
These and the 45 other defenders of the faith featured in this book have made a profound impact on the world around them, and in many cases changed the course of history. Strong, smart, and sometimes outspoken, these men are tremendous examples of God’s love in action.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"This is a very well-written book made even more enjoyable by an excellent narrator! Narration skills are so important. if the book is not narrated well, it can destroy an audible book. I hope the narrator continues to narrate science books."
"Not a book for the impatient reader/listener. Rather amazed at this ever evolving, abstruse subject and the amount of astronomical dart throwing by so many experts. At least we can taste the complexities while the articulate book narrator leads our curiosity all the way into a black hole, providing an ending.
The narrator eased my dread from start to finish. Thanks."
"This is a good listen for many reasons. Beautifully narrated and a lovingly cooperative family journey. A glimpse into the world of medical uncertainties and determined parents. As a nurse, I am certain that medicine has limitations and horizons yet to be discovered."
