Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 6 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  


Our Summer Reading Program show this year featuring yours truly, Super Hero Squirrely Shirley, was full of giggles and laughs. This summer season was kinda short as far as I am concerned – we need to take this one on the road to audiences in recreational areas all around the country. We need to keep spreading the word.

Although I had to share the limelight, I really had a good time doing this show with Mz Riparian and Pete the Pack Rat. Those two really helped keep me on my toes – I mean paws!

I am proud to say we now have a bunch of Junior Riparian Super Heroes in Arizona who were inspired by the show to help make a difference for frogs and other critters living in riparian zones.

Here is the Junior Riparian Super Hero Pledge

· I promise to be aware of how important the wetlands are for the small critters that live there.

· I promise to leave nature as I find it. (I will not take the rocks, plants or animals from their home in nature.

· I promise to remove my trash when camping or enjoying a family picnic.

· I promise to respect the areas called riparian zones so our waterways in Arizona will remain safe, clean and beautiful.

Your Good Friend Forever,

Squirrely Shirley
