World's Largest Storybook

We perform our stories in front of a giant over-sized one-of-a-kind picture book. And although it may not be quite as huge as the one that set the stage for Verdi’ s opera “A Masked Ball” (below) it is right up there with the world record holders. See how our giant story…

History of Black History Month and Celebrating Presidents

February is Black History Month, and it's also the month when we honor American presidents.

Of course, like other newborns, it wasn't fully grown yet; it started out as just a single week. It was the brainchild of prominent historian…See More

Actors' Nightmare

Every performer has them sooner or later. Usually they involve forgetting your lines or opening a show with no rehearsal. Often they involve the audience walking out or getting restless as they wait. Sometimes they involve forgetting your pants when you go onstage. We've had plenty of them in our time, though not so frequently in recent years. One reason is that we've actually experienced just about all of these in real life—well, except for forgetting the pants. And today we had the potential…See More

Whew! Lucky, indeed. Darn smokers!

I'm having a great summer. Just did 2 shows today at a Highland Games and had wonderful audiences, as I always do there. : )

Kimberly & Dennis:

Welcome to Professional Storyteller, my friends! Glad you joined the fray! Soleil is heading off to college this fall and I am "empty-nesting" for her (Don't you miss Zephyr?!!). :( But I still have the little one (Eliana - 7 years old) with me and she has been traveling and performing with me this summer. Please join my Story Biz group too - lots of great info. This site has grown beyond my wildest dreams and it's great to see storytellers creating and sharing! Best wishes always!
