Thirty years ago, I accidentally walked into Diane Wolkstein’s storytelling class. I’ve been telling stories on purpose ever since.

My Bible stories incorporate traditional and original midrash — short stories that fill gaps in the larger tale.


For children/families/communities:

The Story of Esther
Jonah and the Whale and the Worm
Other tales from the Bible
Tales from Chelm, the Village of Fools
Holiday-themed stories

For 14+:

Brangane’s Tale (based on Tristan and Iseult)
The Story of Esther, Uncensored
The Story of Naomi and Ruth
Mothering Moses: The Women of the Exodus
Devoted Enemies: The Story of Saul and David
Other tales from the Bible
