I first started telling stories in grade school, started getting paid about 25 years ago. I have appeared in Churches, schools, libraries, and civic organizations. I specialize in Old Mountain Tales, Tall Tales and Stories from the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. My CD in this last category won the 2014 StoryTelling World Award in the category For Adult Listeners. I have been the Spotlight Teller at the Florida Storytelling Camp at Lake Yale, FL.
