Profile Information

Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
Author and storyteller. Marilyn A. Hudson is an author, historian, and storyteller who has been traveling the twists and turns of the "Story Road" for nearly 20 years. Her audience experience ranges from young children to senior adults and she has traveled each summer since 1999 sharing tales for public libraries during their summer reading emphasis. She presents original stories, as well as historical and folklore tales, with her own little twists. She is also "The Ghost Teller" specializing in haunted tales of literature, history, and folklore. She frequently conducts benefit concerts at the historic Overholser Mansion in OKC, "Scary Tales and Twilight Tours." Marilyn is a member of the Territory Tellers, the Association of History Performers, and a facilitator of the Oklahoma City storytelling guild, Oklahoma Association of Storytellers.
She frequently conducts events blending both her storytelling and her writing for adult and teen audiences. Her published works include "The Bones of Summer", "Tales of Hell's Half Acre", "When Death Rode the Rails", "Murderous Marriages" and the novel, "The Mound". She is available for storytelling and for workshops/classes.


Some persona's may never hit the stage but are useful in locating and developing stories to tell.

I manage a blog called the "Paranormal Librarian" - it features news, reviews, events, oddities, etc. related to the broad range of things paranormal. This includes ghost stories. I have started a sidebar list of "Ghost Tellers" - I will gladly list anyone on this so just send me your link! (

The "P.L." may show up at some event - if I can devise a character free of negative librarian stereotypes....of course she may be a ghost herself....who knows??
