The Dallas Morning News has called Elizabeth "Dallas' premier storyteller." She is that, and more. A repeat favorite at the National Storytelling Festival, she is a recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Network and has been the Teller in Residence at the International Storytelling Center.  She shares her stories with all ages, having told to more than a million school children and almost as many adults in her thirty-three year career.


An extensive repertoire which features Appalachian and Texas tales, ghost stories, world folktales, stories of heroic American women and personal stories makes it possible for her to tailor a program that will fit your needs. On the Touring Roster of the Texas Commission on the Arts, some monies may be available to help defray Elizabeth's expenses through a simple Performance Support grant.
