Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 6 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  


Hi Friends, It’s June 1st and vacation time!
I am going with that story-teller-person-lady-Glenda Bonin to California to see a friend graduate and then hopefully to meet with some people who may want to sponsor us for our 2012-2013 tour, “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry”. I am so excited about the future!
One really nice part is that I have my good friend, Sam Dragonetti, tree-sitting for me to water my plants, bring in the mail and all that stuff you need to do at home. It is the first time he has stayed in a tree and we both hope it works.
Your Friend Squirrely Shirley
