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.  


Last Sunday was really super! That story-teller-person-lady, Glenda Bonin and I did two birthday parties, and each one was really different from the other.

“Squirrely Shirley Makes Waves!” was cool and groovy at Charlotte’s splash party in Tucson.
Then we packed up the old tree in our wagon and drove to Ft. Huachauca to entertain at a Miguel’s Super Hero party. I was, of course, one of the super heroes, and our show, “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry – Fry!” was a lot of fun for Miguel and his friends!
This kind of work is even better than collecting acorns! I always have a good time. I’ll post a picture of me and my “cape” soon.

Your friend,
Squirrely Shirley
