Share a Story - Change the World
I've spent nearly two years working on a play about the friendship between a sheriff and the man he ultimately hangs for murder. It's based on true events from 1891-92. It's been fascinating to research. About a year ago I told the story as an oral tale in a storytelling concert. Gosh, I wish I had taped it! It went really well, but I'll never remember what I said. Last August two actors helped me present the play as a staged reading. It got great response but it's not done, not by a long…Continue

It may help others decide to come to the Detroit area, July 24 to 27. Yes, that's opposite the National Storytelling Network conference,…Continue

April 2014 marks the inauguration of 'Through the Rainbow' - N.Ireland's (and Ireland's) first storytelling festival for children, performed by children. It has been an exciting journey developing N.Ireland's greatest resource - its children. True to form, the workshops with the children have had the goosebumps moments, as well as the 'Why am I doing this again?' moments, but it will all be worth it when the children finally deliver the stories they have been preparing. It has certainly…Continue

Sorry Charleycakes. You can't go down that street anymore.
We are poor now, lucky to eat a meal a day.
These are tight times. So settle down, junior, strap in, and enjoy the ride.

It was 5 years ago today that the Professional Storyteller Society lost a wonderful orator with the passing of Dave Ponkey. He was a wonderful, giving storyteller who entertained thousands, if not millions of people with his performances both on and off stage. He will be missed, by friends and family alike. I am sure he is up there on that great stage in the sky, continuing in his great tradition. Luv ya Dave!
Hello- Penguins are my favorite animals. So, I thought: I should build a collection of "Penguin Stories" ! Does anyone tell a really good penguin tale?
Hello- I just finished Ji-Ji Jiang's book "The Magical Monkey". I love the subtitle: mischief in heaven. I have ordered Waley's version from a local library. I hope to get a chance to tell these wonderful stories!
Also, I am reading a sci-fi novel by Mark Lawrence' called: "The King of Thorns" . It is the second book in his Broken Empire series.
I would like to thank all of you who are helping me to develop as a storyteller. I won't List names because I might leave…Continue

This is perhaps more of a legend, than a fairy tale, and there are a couple of varieties of it. This is more or less a translated version of how I use to tell it.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the story.…Continue

We are very fond of our pets and when our little 14 year old terrior wandered out of the yard we were very worried. She is half blind and half deaf and like us -just plain old. She has aches and pains and is stiff when she gets up. Also, she has congestive heart failure and is on meds twice a day.
We were visiting our son in Metairie, LA and she was not familiar with any of her surroundings. She was out of our sight for about 15 minutes when I discovered her missing. We jumped in the…Continue

This week coming up is Mother Tongue week at my son's school (Australian International in Singapore). I've teamed up with a Japanese parent who conducts MT lessons there to tell The Three Magic Charms, which is a very popular tale (Noriko knew it the moment I suggested it, and has her own book version of it, which was fascinating to see). i'm also working with the Mandarin Dept which has provided three Grade 4 kids who are helping me to tell a story fromn Taiwan…Continue

Some years ago, the same year that John Gray published "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus," I had several gigs in the weeks prior to Valentines Day with several "H" card shops giving workshops on "Romance". They were always full, couples, singles, male and female. But the next year I couldn't bring myself to pitch the workshop to any of the local card stops. The folks who attended ran the gambit, eager young couples wanting to get it right, brow beaten men accompanied by wives who…Continue
