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.  


“Glenda has done summer reading programs for me before and they have always been a real hit. But, the Chautauqua of Dusty Vail she performed for our Arizona Centennial celebration was a new experience for most of the audience. From the adults to the preschoolers, everyone was completely engrossed in the stories. The kinds of questions the kids asked afterwards showed how much they understood and were intrigued by Dusty’s experiences. Now our students want to take a field trip to the Empire Ranch to see where Dusty lived.”
