I tell folk tales, Ozark Jack Tales, personal memories, historical narratives, current issues, and have developed the specialties of chicken stories, tall tales, and spooky stories.  I do Biblical Storytelling (Academy of Biblical Storytelling Certificate) as well.


I have performed all over the state of Missouri, in 10 other states, and in 5 countries.  


I want people to know that I enjoy telling to all ages and stages, but my preference is adults; and that I thoroughly enjoy helping people experience humor, wonder, awe, inspiration, and motivation to be one with all people and the earth.

Missouri Storytelling, Inc.  



Welcome to the home of Missouri Storytelling, Inc. MO-TELL

MO-TELL was established in 1984 as Missouri's leading storytelling group for storytellers and listeners alike with the intention to promote and perpetuate storytelling throughout the state.

Throughout our history we have successfully reached Missourians by providing storytelling in the Missouri State Parks.  Currently we provide storytellers to 12 state parks and/or historic sites in Missouri.  We are seeking support to continue and increase our scope of venues and audiences.
