I write almost every day on my blog, Granny Sue's News and Reviews. Come on over and enjoy some time in my world. Canning, storytelling, chickens, ballads, family, poetry and more all mix to create a quilt-like picture of what it means to be a storyteller and writer in rural West Virginia. It's a life like no other, rich in details, humor, how-to, and insight.
Storyteller Granny Sue
I have been telling stories all my life, but in 1996 I began telling them professionally. My storytelling career has carried me as far west as Bellingham, Washington and as far east as Boston, Massachusetts. I tell stortiees to audiences of all ages and backgrounds: for festivals, fairs, parks, schools, libraries, conferences, workshops and just about any event or venue you might imagine. While I love traveling and sharing stories, I also wantto tell stories to those who cannot come to a performance. How can I do that? By recording or writing some of my most popular tales you can listen to them in your home, car or wherever you happen to be.
Listening to stories is an experience like no other. It is just you, the storyteller's voice and your imagination, carrying you to far places and times, seeing in your mind the tale unfold in all its richness, mystery and adventure. If you have never listened to a storyteller, I invite you to give it a try. I think that you, like so many others, will discover that this ancient art is surprisingly vibrant even in our modern world.
