Biography: 

I have a B.S. in Child Development and have been entertaining and teaching children for over 45 years. I have lived in Colorado for over 21 years and performed shows for all the PPLD libraries (and several other types of venues) as one of my many colorful characters - Mother Goose, Mrs. Claus, Stitches the Scarecrow and more. I use puppets, silly props and lots of audience participation in all my shows. I am now taking some of my original stories from my shows and making them into books.
