Bio
CONNECTING!
Story is my life from my early day years of fishing and haunting the gold museums in my Colorado, to the backwoods travel in Alaska, and then nestling in the rich diversity of the Bay Area of California. I know story through art, teaching, writing and verbally telling; most important to offer an excellent story. I LOVE STORY!
*I tell stories at swaps, fairs, bookstores, farms, benefits, fests, picnics, libraries, parks, museums, YMCA, celebrations, organizations, and schools - ANYWHERE A STORY IS NEEDED!
*For ten years told folktales, legends, and myths at the Asia Art Museum in San Francisco in the Chinese, Japanese, Hindu, Southeast Asian, and Korea gallery, and for special events, Buddha, Balinese, Zodiac, Krishna, Ramayana, Wauang Puppets, Siam, and on Sundays, and did a workshop on Character in Stories;
*Co-hosting story swap Storytells in Oakland and Tale Spinners in Orinda;
*Produced Spooky Tales at Berkeley Botanical Gardens five years;

***I did write and publish Rhyonna's Fright, a story that took 35 years of telling and editing, now Rhyonna flies around the vast virtual web of magic.

I like to say when telling at the Asia Art Museum in San Francisco, I earned my doctorate in Storytelling (learning where stories came from). My master (how to tell a story), I earned at the Dominican University in San Rafael, CA. My second bachelors from SCBWI, the Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators where I learned how to compose, write and illustrate the best creative story. I did earn my Bachelors at the University of Colorado at Boulder in teaching and art.
