Your storytelling was terrific.

Norm Brecke held a few dozen little ears in the palm of his hand. His well-told yarn about a dragon resonated with both kids and adults…Of course, to truly soak up the message, it is best to hear the story illustrated with Brecke's colorful inflections and wide-eyed expressions.

You are one special teller!

                     Karyn Page-Davies, Director Stone Soup Storytelling Institute


The Lighter Side of Lincoln presentation you did for the Beaverton Historical Society was incredibly captivating and enjoyed by everyone. It is a presentation you won't want to miss!

                        Judy Donovan, Beaverton Historical Society

Your programs are uplifting and fun. We look forward to you coming.
