I love bringing people and stories together any which way I can:
Storytelling in the great oral tradition. Won't you explore with me the opportunity and fun of becoming a storyteller, too?
Coaching on the creation and presentation of personal tales. I can help with the writing and with your personal presentation.
Workshops on how to tell the folk and fairy tales of the world to educators, students, and parents in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
I am also available to tell stories in all community settings.
NEW! I am teaching CREATIVE WRITING at Avenidas Center in Palo Alto beginning in January to adults age 45+.
I will also teach a memoir class for those wanting to create an oral presentation of life events as a story (for The Moth) or for an audio/video recording. The class is scheduled for January at Avenidas.
I have published two books of literary criticism, have had over 20 of my plays produced, and have published short stories in newspapers and magazines.
I am a retired Library Director of The Harker School (Pre-K -12) in San Jose,California.
In addition, I spent 18 years as a children's librarian with the Santa Clara County Library District in Northern California.
I serve as the committee chair for the successful Annual Los Altos Library Story Fest. We just finished our third festival. See the side bar for more details.
