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! Is it really the New Year already? I’ve been waiting for this year to start because this means that the 2014 Library Summer Program, FIZZ, BOOM, READ! is just a few months away.

Time for me to polish up my “Squirrely Shirley Discovers the Magic of Science” show and get ready to share what I’ve learned about science.
Science is a big subject, so I’ve been looking at experiments I can safely do under the watchful eye of an adult. This means, you can probably do them, too!

Today, I want to share “READ!(More…)”, my second reading list of science books I think you might like to check out from your local library. If you really like one of these books, you might want to buy your very own copy from a bookstore. For this FREE Read! (More…) book list PDF, just click here.
