Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 4 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  

 

We’ll be leaving next month for Washington State to do our latest show, “Squirrely Shirley Digs up a Treasure Chest of Trouble,” and I’m excited! The plan is to leave a treasure chest (like the one I dig up during the show) at each library where we appear (there are ten libraries on the list). […]

What fun! I’m still excited about how good the show is and how great the kids […]

Will you look at that? It has been three months since you have heard from me! As you know, we squirrels aren’t as active in the winter as we are in the summer, and this winter has been cold enough for me to just spend my time snuggling into my nest inside the tree and […]

It seems the Timberland Regional Library had so much fun when we performed “Squirrely Shirley Makes Waves” in 2011 that they want us […]

Last Sunday was really super! That story-teller-person-lady, Glenda Bonin and I did two birthday parties, and each one was really different from the other. “Squirrely Shirley Makes Waves!” was cool and groovy at Charlotte’s splash party in Tucson. Then we packed up the old tree in our wagon and drove to Ft. Huachauca to entertain […]

The picture of me as a Super Hero Squirrel that I promised to share with you is on the home page of that storyteller-person-lady, Glenda Bonin. Being part of the ‘super group’ is a fun thing, but there sure is a lot of work out there for heros to do! See you in the movies. […]
