Scam Alert Targeting Performers with Websites

(The company is unnamed here as there may be more than one.  Wouldn't want to have a slander problem either, but the method deserves mentioning for the safety of my fellow performers)

Storytellers and possibly other performers are being targeted…

Storytelling Interview at "The Powerful Patient" on BlogTalk Radio

Hey all,

Here's another interview I did over at BlogTalk radio on the "Powerful Patient" show. She has a reach of about 20,000 listeners, so it's a lot of people to which to speak of storytelling.

About 45 minutes on "communicating with your children" with emphasis on how storytelling is part of that in general and some about my DaddyTeller specifically.…

Old Christmas, Jan. 6, Celebrated in Bristol, VA

Hello All - I've been gone for awhile due to several events and issues. The last I posted was in November, then devoted my time to publicity for our Old Christmas program and preparing for a vacation my husband, Rocky, and I were taking over Christmas. We returned the very end of Dec. and on New Year's Day Rocky came down with bronchitis. He is a cancer survivor of 4 years and has the chronic condition of COPD. He seemed to be recovering by Jan. 6, our Old Christmas celebration but chose not to… Continue

You *Can* still Get Your Page at

Being listed in the two major storytelling directories is critical to your success as a working teller. If you don't yet have a site, directories are a good way to have something to refer to while your site is being carefully considered.

Some tellers like Tim Ereneta are doing just that. He forwards to his page with us. He has a Super Premium page with us, but you can at least get the idea of how that might work for…

FFHL Blog--"Story not to be used"--posted by Rachel Hedman

When I find the word "famine" in my everyday readings, I pause and wonder how this might influence the kinds of stories I share for the "Family Famine: Hunger for Love" narrative production.

If nothing else, I am reminded that many cultures--whether or not directly related to my own--have stories that call for rain so that there will not be famine upon the land.

To discover the story I will not use and for… Continue

Hurricane Gustav Recovery - 9-7-08 - Dianne de Las Casas


Today was our first full day at home since we evacuated from Gustav on August 30. The first good news I heard was that sewerage services in Jefferson Parish Westbank were restored. I was able to spend much of the day cleaning (you need water to clean!) - scrubbing down the refrigerator and freezer (we lost all of our food) as well as cleaning the rest of the kitchen - the microwave, the stove, and organizing the pantry. Here is a picture of our fridge now. It looks brand… Continue

Hurricane Gustav Updates from Dianne de Las Casas


Here in the New Orleans area where I live, a mandatory evacuation order has been issued by 8am tomorrow (August 31, 2008). The airport is closed and my oldest daughter (Soleil, age 18) is in Houston, visiting her boyfriend. Her flight home was canceled so we have her rerouted to Birmingham, AL, where my family and I are heading. We have a hotel room and hope they don’t give it away. That happened to us during… Continue

Gustav: We're Watching You! - Dianne de Las Casas


2 days marks the 3rd anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (August 29, 2005). It's very eerie to see the warnings and all the officials taking extra precautions, preparing for the worst. Several computer models have Gustav heading towards to New Orleans. Right now, the cone extends from the Texas border to Tampa, Florida. We're smack in the middle. Predictions have the storm at a Category 3 (winds at 111-130mph) or higher. Haiti broke up Gustav and he has been downgraded to a… Continue

FFHL Blog--"Outreach: Transform Solo Piece to Community Art"--posted by Rachel Hedman

A storyteller does not have to be alone. With all the wondrous art forms out in the world, the merging of them brings about something that more than one person can enjoy.

When I attended a workshop by the Utah Arts Council, I already had the idea of asking for who would like to join me in this "Family Famine: Hunger for Love" premiere set for February 9, 2009. With so many months for preparation, what… Continue
