I have been indulging in my love for telling stories since 1995. I tell folk tales, wonder tales, stories from all over the world that inspire or mystify and, in particular, stories that enchant. I have worked with audiences of all ages and take as great a delight in reminiscence work as in inspiring young minds. I have also run story workshops and sessions on story making with children and adults and have experimented with the use of music as an inspiration to story making. I have experience of multi-lingual storytelling from my many travels. I am not an epic storyteller, so the great myths and legends do not form part of my repertoire. As I have now passed my 84th Birthday I would be less inclined to work full days in schools, preferring public performance or workshops but, in fact, the Covid pandemic has also driven me online to Zoom, where I am surprisingly busy.
I am based in North Shields, Tyne and Wear.
