I'm from the dramatic mountains of Colorado, then to the deep snows of Alaska to the green vegetation of California. All my life, I have told, written, or drawn stories. After graduating from college at Colorado University in Boulder, I became a first-grade teacher in Alaska and Kindergarten in San Francisco, and then art in Oakland elementary. I have returned to the writing after years teaching art to children; 10 years as a professional gardener; and 12 years as storyteller at Asia Art Museum, plus telling at swaps, etc.; while activity in SCBWI, Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators; NSN, National Storytelling Network; SAC, Storytelling Association of California, and CWC, the California Writers Club in Berkeley, CA. It's never too late to finish a project and sometimes time, distance, and experience makes a better story.
Bobbie writes fantasies about faeries, elfin folk, trolls, pixies, tree sheegahshees, and all the other spirits in the InBetween realms in nature, as well as telling a good tale. She is also working on a collections of folk and fairytales and myths.
GOAL: for the 2019 Write-a-Thon my goal is to rewrite 10 of the 20 folktales planned, 'Timeless Tales Told.' Each story has an introduction related to 'how - to - tell' a story.
Sponsors. please pledge a dollar for each story written. Your pledge sparks my encouragement while helping Clarion meet their goals for the Write-a-Thon.
