On Storytelling

    The craft and art of words can move souls. Storytellers want to create work with excellence that touches people, it’s just the getting there that’s hard. Some of the challenges of crafting stories that move others and unleash our creative self are mastering new forms and structuring (ah, a biggie). We can approach, begin, and work while persevering and find joy in the doing. We also want to move our work to the next level and navigate the changing options and methods to share it with our audience. 

    I’ve written five books and my newest is The Long Awakening: A Memoir. From conference presentations to coaching I love to inspire storytellers and leave them with practical knowledge to get their stories out of their hearts and minds and into the world.
