I work as a writer and performance storyteller.
As a traditional oral storyteller, I perform stories for all ages, typically at schools, community groups, historic houses, theatres, arts centres, festivals and libraries. I tell stories, based on traditional material, so fairy tales, folk tales, myths and legends from all around the world.
I also lead workshops on the art and techniques of oral storytelling and creative writing in a range of settings.
In 2013, I was nominated for the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence under the category "Outstanding Female Storyteller".
As a writer, I have published 3 audio books of written stories for children and completed my first novel (a young adult novel. I am currently working on a second novel, being crime fiction.
Poetry is a hobby I love and in 2009 I won the Ripley Poetry prize. I also run two storytelling clubs "Tales from Two Cities" at the Voicebox in Derby, and Five Leaves Bookshop in Nottingham.
