Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my storytelling site. Many people find my stories entertaining, heartwarming and memorable. I hope that you will too. For me, storytelling combines the intensity of a one person play with the intimacy of a one-on-one conversation.

As an award-winning author and storyteller (I won the Story Slam at the 2010 National Storytelling Conference in Los Angeles,) I enjoy telling many kinds of stories to all ages. A particular interest of mine is giving a voice to people from the past who made a difference. I've told stories at many venues in the Northeastern USA, including The New-York Historical Society (New York City, NY), The Clearwater Festival (Croton-on-Hudson, NY), First Night Saratoga (Saratoga Springs, NY), and The Norman Rockwell Museum (Stockbridge, MA).

My fourth CD, Fighting For Our Rights - American Women Mid-20th Century was released July, 2014. It contains seven stories of women fighting for civil rights and women's rights, set during a time when white women could not rent cars, be on juries in many states or get a mortgage no matter how much money they made. African American women could not do many more things.

My third CD, Young People Who Made a Difference, has been named winner of a 2013 Storytelling World Resource Award in the adolescent listeners category. Storytelling World is a fully-refereed journal offered annually through National Storytelling Network’s Storytelling Magazine. Each year, Storytelling World gives awards to the most exciting new stories that audiences of various ages would enjoy hearing and storytelling resources that offer information about the field of storytelling. This year’s 34 award winners, selected from several hundred nominated stories, books, and recordings, will be featured in a special section of the April/May issue of Storytelling Magazine.

A story on my second CD, People Who Made a Difference: Volume 1, won a 2010 Storytelling World Honor Award in the category stories for pre-adolescent listeners.
