Storyteller Biography

Samantha Larsen Hastings

INTRODUCTORY INFORMATION

I grew up in Utah and moved to England to go to school when I was 20 years old. I loved living in a place where the past and present blended together seamlessly. After awhile, I missed home and returned to the mountains of Utah. I have worked as a receptionist, adjunct college teacher, and now as a librarian. I currently live in Riverton, Utah with my husband and brand new baby boy.

STORYTELLING INTERESTS
 
In 2005, I attended the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, Utah. I fell in love with storytelling. I listened and was enraptured by tales from all over the world and storytellers with different styles. Since then I have attended other storytelling events and have taken storytelling classes at the University of North Texas. I hope to continue to improve and to find my own storytelling voice and style.
 


MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

I love to read, play tennis and eat exotic foods.
