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.  



Healthy Kids Day last Saturday, April 14th was so much fun. I think lots of people in Tucson, AZ like the idea of being healthy and staying fit, because the event brought out a bunch of them. Since it rained a little in the morning (yea!), we got to do our “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry!” show in the meeting room of the Himmel Branch Library instead of outside as planned. Our show ROCKED (even if I say so myself)!

I really like it the kids get my little jokes, and everyone has a good time helping that storytelling-person-lady, Glenda Bonin, tell stories. Best of all, we got our message across, and the kids helped me say “Bye-Bye, Fry-Fry.” (If you don’t know about that awful guy, Fry-Fry, be sure to catch our show at the Sierra Vista Library, June 7 at 10 a.m.)

Your friend, Squirrely Shirley
