Scenes from Animal Farm (12/17)

Dramatic Reading of Animal Farm, 12/17.

Enid's husband, Sanford, as Major in Animal Farm



I bring people and stories together any which way I can:

Storytelling in the great oral tradition. Won't you explore with me the opportunity and fun of becoming a storyteller, too?

NEW! See the Los Altos Town Crier's Magazine article on Enid (May,2017)

Coaching on the creation and presentation of personal tales. I can help with the writing and with your personal presentation.

Workshops on how to tell the folk and fairy tales of the world to educators, students, and parents in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.

I am also available to tell stories in schools and other community settings.

I am teaching CREATIVE WRITING at Avenidas Center in Palo Alto to adults age 50+ See "Creative Writing Classes (Adult)"

Dramatic narrative reading is another focus of mine, taught at Avenidas as well.

I directed a dramatized adaptation of George Orwell's Animal Farm: A Fairy Story on December 15th & 16th. See Staged Readings.

This November 2nd & 3rd., I will direct my new play, Deleted., at Avenidas with The Wise Owl Players, a senior troupe.

I have published two books of literary criticism, have had over 20 of my plays produced, and have published short stories in newspapers and magazines.

I am a retired Library Director of The Harker School (Pre-K -12) in San Jose,California.

In addition, I spent 18 years as a children's librarian with the Santa Clara County Library District in Northern California.
