I've just sent two books to the printer which I'm self-publishing: Stories For Moral Education Juniors and Teens. They're intended as resource books for teachers.The starting point was that last October the Minister of Education here in Singapore(where I live) announced that values ed. was going to be given much more emphasis.

Roger--Just read your bio..do you know Katherine (or is it Kathleen) MacLeod from Singapore. I performed at the Aussie festival in 2005 and flew through S'pore and stayed with Katherine and her husband. Also know Shiela Wee and Kirah Singh???
Greetings and welcome to this great site. I think you will enjoy it. I wonder if you would consider joining the group Applied Storytelling:The Power of Story. I'm sure we could gain from all of your experiences and insights! Best wishes to you. STEVE
My favorite coffee has little to do with what's in the cup, but who is across the table. My favorite shops are non-chains where stangers sitting at nearby tables talk with each other. Coffee in a bag may be fun when I walk my dog, she's my most constant audience...she walks, I tell and she never interupts.
Please consider joining all the fringe that's fit to print. Write something up about your fringe experiences. I read about your experiences at Edinborugh.
Hope to have coffee with you one day in the future,
Great seeing you here on Professional Storyteller! I wish our paths would cross again soon. I had so much fun in Singapore all those years ago. I was just on your side of the world last month - touring in Guam and the Philippines. Hope you are doing well and welcome!

I am glad you have decided to join us here at PS... Dianne de Las Casas has done an amazing thing here. Lots of great people, good discussions around our craft and the business of storytelling. Check out the groups... I see you have found a couple... excellant.
Poke your head into the Fishbowl and Marketing groups too... who knows you might be able to teach us something... one thing is certain very few of us here feel that we have "arrived" most of us believe we are still learning.
Edinburgh, eh? I didn't see you . . . oh, wait a minute - you said 2007, right? Yeah...uhmmm - I was there about 30 yrs prior....yeah, so I'm guessin' that's probably why we didn't run into each other -
No matter. We 'meet' now!
