Bio:I have told stories to adults and children for fifteen years. I was born in Winston-Salem, NC, and grew up in Martinsville,Va. I tell stories about my family, including my maternal grandparents who lived in Martinsville.

My father grew up in Pilot Mountain, NC, and my paternal grandparents lived there for their entire lives. I tell stories about Pilot Mountain, which was and still is similar to Mayberry on the Andy Griffith show, and some of the oddities of life there. For children I tell mostly folk and fairy tales.
