Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

I love being a storyteller, and am always pleased when I have opportunities to share personal stories, world folktales and western history narratives. As a touring performer and workshop presenter, my work has taken me all around the country. I provide workshops and entertain audiences of all ages at schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events. Most recently, I’ve been telling stories to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues.  


The Tucson Festival of Books in March was awesome! Hope you were able to go. I had a lot of fun checking out all the different fun activities the festival had to offer, and I liked all the stories told under the storytelling tent. Maybe one day, they will invite me to entertain the crowds.
If you think the festival folks should feature yours truly in 2013, please like this page. That way, they will know I am one popular squirrel, and I can bring in a crowd.
We are getting ready for our summer library show, “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry!” To kick off the season, we will be at the Sierra Vista Library June 7th. Save the date, and I will give you more info in my next journal post.

Your friend, Squirrely Shirley
