A sugar-coated hellcat who dearly loves to laugh, Shayne is the StorySource for Ten-Gallon Texas Tales – original fiction with just enough “believable absurdity” to be awarded the coveted title of “The Biggest Liar in Texas” from the George West StoryFest.
The roots of her name can be traced to Seanchaí – Gaelic for custodian of tradition through story. She even kissed the Blarney Stone to seal the deal; however, Shayne is uniquely Texan. Her personal stories reveal a vulnerable strength that was shaped by this mythic land.
Telling stories around Texas and across the USA, Shayne has been even known to wow an international crowd savvy enough to understand her accent. In addition to hosting a Dinner Storytelling Salon, she shines at non-traditional venues where rules come undone: political rallies, fundraisers, private parties, concerts, festivals, progressive libraries and schools, cocktail hours, the occasional wedding, dining room tables, and around the bed of pickup trucks parked in pastures.
Shayne loves stories and believes a healthy society will value Creatives, Artists, Writers, and Performers, but does have a formula to determine her value in today’s economy if your up-front offer isn’t enough.
