It was a blast working with you at WildAcres and watching your voice come out of its shell! You have such a gentle, lovely style of telling. Has your man written his book yet?

Thanks, Sylvia. There's a little bit of every immigrant I've been close to in there. And maybe a touch of Mel Brooks. Baba has a big crush on the 2000 Year Old Man :-D

Hi Sylvia, thank you for your lovely comments. Yes, we do have a New Zealand Guild of Storytellers; their website is
However, it doesn't appear to be updated very regularly; I do belong, but don't appear on it yet.
At the Marlborough Farmers' Market, I am telling some traditional tales such as Stone Soup, Little Red Riding Hood and so on, with a Farmers' Market 'flavour'. For instance, I have some child helpers take on the roles of townspeople and think up things that we can add to our Stone Soup that are available at the Farmers' Market. I also use rhythm, rhyme and song for variety and to keep their interest up with shorter 'snappier' tales. I haven't 'told' to adult groups yet, only children.
Thank you for your interest.
Kind regards,

Thanks Sylvia -- this is a grand way to renew old memories and meetings -- and I remember it well.
Yours in stories,

Hello Sylvia,

I love the story on your blog about your grandpa. It reminds me of my grandma, also a fine horsewoman.

Kind regards,
