I am a storyteller in traditional oral storytelling. Now, I want you to explore with me the opportunity and fun of becoming a storyteller, too!
I can coach you in selling yoursef while using a story narrative. I can help with the writing and with your personal presentation.
I give 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 have recently been hired to teach 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.Our next fest is 12/3/16. See the side bar for more details.
Most of all - I love bringing people and stories together any which way I can.
