Hi Lethan! A friend of mine has been helping with my upcoming solo show, and I just found out he is friends with your parents! His name is Cam Richards, and he says hi to you and also hi to your parents. He's been telling me what a great storyteller you are. He was a student of your dad's at Bloomsburg last year.
I'm sorry I haven't made it to your page to welcome you to Professional Storyteller. The site has grown like wildfire and it's hard to keep up... Anyway, I love that, at your age, you have made a full-time commitment to storytelling. How cool! I began storytelling professionally at age 26 and was completely hooked!! I hope you'll consider joining the Story Biz group too as it has tons of information for the "story biz" side of your career. Best wishes and Happy Tales!

Do you have a certain genre of story you like to tell?
