My name is David and I'm 21 years old. I currently live in North Carolina and I would love to start voice over work. I was looking into it a few years ago but got discouraged. I'm ready to give it another go but I don't know where to begin. I find my voice is more appropriate for narration and/or book reading, if that helps. Thanks in advance!

Well, North Carolina's not the best place for VO work, but commercial work might be there. Have you taken any acting classes? If you're looking for VO classes, try googling "Voice over classes [your area]". If you're into audiobooks, that's awesome, but they usually don't pay very well. I think most audiobooks get celebrities anyway.

A lot of people who post about voice over say they wanna be voice actors (for cartoons and/or anime), but nothing in your post implies this.

Have you visited voices.com or voice123?

You've got to develop a demo. Thats key to get your name out there and try landing gigs. As far as location goes, it won't matter too much if you have the equipment to record at home. Many agencies and casting companies can work with their talent through ISDN or source connect, such as http://www.cmdnyc.com/

Check out the blogs on that site too, there's some helpful info.
