Arlin Alcalá is outstanding as Cruzita Soto in the Spanish language series, Sin temer la noche. She is both the model and the voice. Arlin’s entry into the arts happened while she was earning her Associates Degree in Child Development in El Paso. She entered a beauty contest and became a Finalist. The experience gave her a taste for the arts. Since then she has been writing her own plays, contributing to the community channel, performing in theatre and most recently doing voiceover and modeling for Siren Audio Studios.
The role of Cruzita is one of the most colorful characters of the town of Amparo. She is the servant of Doña Elena Luna — even though she doesn’t think of herself that way. She considers herself a surrogate mother to Doña Elena and grandmother to Pilar Luna. She is excitable, fiercely loyal and loves her sotol…for its medicinal qualities of course.
Arlin played the role to perfection.

Clifton Chadwick is one of Siren Audio Studios' most versatile actors, most recently portraying the role of Francisco Mondragon, the spiritual and political leader of the frontier town of Amparo, NM, in the Spanish language Audionovela™ Sin temer la noche.
Clifton has contributed a wide range of characters to each and every one of Siren's audio productions. He played Dassas Cormier, the lead role in S.H. Baker's Return to Marshall's Bayou, a production which has now been named a finalist in two prestigious contests, including the 2012 Audies® in the category of Mystery. He is not only enormously talented; he has a voice known to have weakened more than a few knees.
Clifton is an Albuquerque N.M. native and has been doing voice characterizations since his days in front of Saturday Morning Cartoons. While studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts, Clifton began to get "gigs" doing Radio and TV commercials for local advertising agencies, starting with an Irish dialect for a St. Patrick's commercial. Since 1980—in addition to frequently "walking the boards" at several local theaters—Clifton has been seen and heard on Radio and Television as a variety of characters.

Ninette S. Mordaunt has been active in the Albuquerque theatre scene since the mid-80's. It has been such a pleasure to work with Ninette. Her versatility as both a voiceover actor and model made her a perfect choice for several projects.
Look for Ninette on the cover of Mark Dunn's Dix Tableaux and as the voice of Beverly in that performance. About her role as Beverly, Ninette says she always enjoys working on a play by Mark because he writes women's parts so well that they play themselves.
Ninette also plays the role of Mrs. Mary Strickler in the upcoming Angel in My Arms, a romance by author S.H. Baker writing as Sarah Storme. Mrs. Strickler has her hands full dealing with a difficult husband and unorthodox daughter.
