Words are like footprints both take you on a journey


Stories are much more than Once Upon A Time, stories assist us to make sense of our lives.   Moreover, stories can transform our communities and they can propel healing.  The beauty of story is that it never dictates, it enchants, informs and suggests allowing the listener to make up their own mind.   

I create my own stories using an infusion of old stories bringing it into contemporary life with themes which include women's ways of knowing, environmental and social justice issues.   I am a fan of comic art so I  also  attempt to draw my own illustrations.  

My repertoire includes Myths and Legends,  Stories from the Irish Four Cycles, Tales from the Celtic Lands,  Folk Tales, Children's Tales, Fantasy,  and contemporary new tales.
