Meet the Team
Taraneh is the Senior Manager of Creative Marketing for Penguin Random House Audio. From spending every weekend of her childhood at her local library in Illinois to getting a degree in English Literature from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, books have always been an integral part of her life. Needless to say, Taraneh is very passionate about literacy and reading in any format! Outside the office, Taraneh writes about pop culture and theater, volunteers with a children's art program, bakes, and travels as much as possible.
Jennifer Rubins is the Associate Director of Creative Marketing for Penguin Random House Audio and has been listening to audiobooks since she learned to read (turning the page when she heard the chimes!). Jen has devoted herself to supporting the art of storytelling in some shape or form for as long as she can remember. After graduating from Binghamton University with a degree in English and theatre, she performed as an actress in theatres & schools around the country, including educational & literature-based theatre where she led Q & A’s with students after performances. Jen studied Shakespeare at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford and is a proud member of Actors Equity. She first discovered her passion for publishing while working as both a copy editor and author of reading comprehension books. Jen couldn’t be more thrilled to bring her passions for books, actors, and storytelling all together with Books on Tape where she’s always excited to connect with libraries and listeners!
