Biography:

Hi. I am an Ottawa based storyteller, a member of Ottawa Storytellers and Storytellers of Canada.
I took a storytelling course in 2009 and have been telling stories ever since. I tell children’s stories, traditional stories, historical and personal stories, especially about my British Home Child father. In addition I play the celtic harp.

I have told at medievel festivals in Osgoode and Upper Canada Village, in retirement residences, in elementary and high schools, at children’s festivals, to church groups, in addition to playing my harp at an outdoor wedding, a funeral home, a hospice, a community centre in Wakefield, several retirement residences and the lilac festival in Warkworth.

Repertoire

I have a program about harp stories, one about tree stories, traditional tales from Scotland and Ireland, stories about British Home Children, and finding lost relatives in Scotland, some Italian tales, and am starting to learn pirate stories and Robin Hood stories.
