Why I Tell Stories


photo by Mark Russell

Ever since I was a very small child, I have read and loved stories of every kind. Now, I delight in sharing them with children of all ages! Dragons, warriors, queens, tricksters, thunder gods, and animals of every variety - these are the creatures who inhabit the stories I tell. I am a big believer in sound effects: if life doesn't provide enough of them, than I will! Cows, turkeys, donkeys, giants, monkeys, babies, leprechauns.... you name it, I'll make it come to life!! Don't believe me? Come to my regular story-reading hour at Porter Square Books, every Wednesday at 11AM. There you can be sure we'll all have a rollicking good time, as we read our way through a wonderful assortment of children's books, snorting and honking as we go!
