STORYTELLING INTERESTS

 

Books and stories have always been a significant part of my life.  Growing up I went to the city library almost once a week to check out as many books as I could carry.  My favorite subject in school was creative writing because it allowed me to write down all kinds of crazy stories that came to mind.  I've always loved listening to stories but never saw myself telling them to others because I have never enjoyed being the center of attention.  However, I discovered in my storytelling classes that through storytelling I can share great stories with the stories as the focus instead of me.  My favorite stories to tell are humorous, fun, or ones with a twist at the end.

 


 

MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

 

I enjoy spending time with my husband and one-year-old daughter.  I like to scrapbook and make cards, watch movies, cross-stitch, and sometimes even do woodworking.  Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen, J.K. Rowling, and Mo Willems because I can pick up any of their books and instantly be mesmerized.
