Tales, Yarns and Bold Face Lies
|Hi! Welcome to my virtual world. This is just one of the many places that a storyteller can take you. I have taken people back to the dark ages and into the future. Check out my tales, yarns and bold face lies to see and hear some stories I tell for all sorts of occasions. If you need something special for a church function be sure to look at the dramtic monologues and stories page. If your looking for something special at Christmas, you defnitely need to see the Christmas page.
You will find some short sound bites of stories and even some video clips (those will take longer to load as some of these are big files) just to give you a feeling for my style. I have been described as a very animated storyteller. On occasions, I also use my mandolin or ocarina to enhance the storytelling experience.If you like to know more about me, please check out my background information below and by all means feel free to contact me for scheduling a story event at your location .

Additonal Background information:
My stories include those originated by myself and range from personal true stories to some pretty far extrapolations...ok, bold face lies. I won second place in the Liar's contest in Atlanta and have told stories at schools (grade K-12), festivals (such as the Goats Music and More Festival where I was headlined, Shakespeare in the Park Renaissance in period costume and others). I have told stories at the Pumpkin Patch in Knoxville, private parties and special community events including Halloween, Christmas and Valentines.
I have performed for anywhere from a half dozen senior high youths to audiences of hundreds. I have been on stage, in the grass, on a ship, on a train (sounds like a little Dr. Seuss), under a tent during a downpour, in a gym and in hospital rooms. I have performed as far south as -Florida and as far north as Alaska.
I started telling stories when I was five - though my mother didn't call it storytelling then - at least not with the same implications used today. I told Gussy and Jeffery stories to my two sons when they were growing up, until the age of 13 when they found out the stories were about my twin brother and myself. I still tell those stories today.
Story one, "City Slicker"
Story two, "Sleding"
