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.  


When the 2010 “Squirrely Shirley Makes Waves” tour returned to Tucson that fall, I couldn’t stop thinking about how much fun the show had been. This program proved to be a great way to entertain and reinforce important pool and water safety rules for children.

Getting the kids involved by giving water safety advice to Squirrely Shirley really worked!

One of the best things we did during that tour was to distribute “Squirrely Shirley Makes Waves” coloring books to our audiences. This way, the kids got to take away our original eight-page coloring book full of reminders about being safe in water – many of the rules the kids had just shared with Shirley during the show! The kids were happy, and the parents were tickled that their children had a souvenir from the show. Here are links to three of the pages from our 2010 coloring book.
