Storytelling is for everyone, not only for children! For an unplugged and powerful human experience, storytelling delivers humor, reflection, wisdom and wonder. My stories are delivered with a unique array of voices, accents, physical and facial expression. Through spoken word, the human heart and soul are reached and impacted. Corporations, churches, schools and community events will benefit from my storytelling, motivational speeches and songs. I have over 100 stories in my repertoire, but am also an avid writer and story creator. Stories tailored for each individual event. International and Southern Folklore, Bible Stories, poems and original stories appropriate for all ages.

What to Expect
If you are looking for a unique and impactful way to engage and entertain at your event, stories will deliver! Through interactive participation and spell-binding storylines, audiences can expect to experience many emotions and "Aha" moments. My stories are written and designed to foster thought, and engage audiences with each other and with me! My stories are raw, genuine and always positive in their purpose.
I have been a professional storyteller and speaker for 25 years. I was a resident storyteller at The Wren's Nest in Atlanta, Georgia, and have presented story programs for elementary school to college age audiences, festivals, Tellabration, corporate workshops and private events. I use many voices, dialects and emotions to deliver the appropriate stories for any event. Stories are also increasingly powerful in the business world, from the corporate board room to employee centered workshops. I specialize in international and Southern folklore.
Additional Booking Notes
I travel very light! I need only a microphone, normal stage lighting or room lighting, and a glass of water.

Influences & Inspiration
I have been greatly influenced by Carmen Agra Deedy, Garrison Keeler, stories from the Bible and my southern roots. My Great Grandfather was my greatest inspiration, as he knew over 300 poems and stories from memory. He was the consummate front porch storyteller!
I always appreciate an armless chair or low stool for me to use.
