Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I'm a storyteller, not a story-reader. That means I perform the stories (or, as one 4-year-old listener remarked, "Mommy, she didn't have any books; she WAS the story!"). Some of my stories are based on folklore and some are original stories, developed specifically for my audience -- which tends to consist of mostly children (although I often perform for adult audiences, too!). All stories are performed live, and typically include simple props, character voices, and often songs. And all stories are entertaining, age appropriate, and engaging -- I encourage active participation by the audience!
