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.  


Wow! The 5 minute edited video of one of our Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry show this year is finally out there, and we’ve had lots of people taking a look. I’m sure glad I had so many helpful kids and parents at that show to help me say bye-bye to Fry-Fry – he hasn’t been too easy for me to deal with (someone said he is probably a bully). Anyway, I’d like to thank everyone for helping me get that guy out of my tree stump. You guys are cool!

Your friend,
Squirrely Shirley
