About this storyteller

Storytelling – by word of mouth – enlivens me, whether I’m listening or telling. Since 1985 I’ve put myself in the way of stories and tellers. I was awarded a Churchill Fellowship (Queensland) in 1988. This gave me the chance to interact with over 30 well-known storytellers in Toronto, New York, Nashville, Vancouver and Seattle, and of course, Scotland. Many of the elders who shared and influenced me have since passed on. I’m fortunate to know many more tellers and listeners, good people … everywhere, from all walks of life, who share this gift.

I prefer to tell stories with a live audience. I don’t use props, just my voice, for old stories made new, traditional tales, and personal stories that make me laugh, or make me wonder.

*In the imagination, everything can be restored, everything mended, wounds healed, stories ended.
