While growing up in Scotland and Canada, Kathleen's father and mother would tell her tales of their ancestors. She loved listening to those vivid stories of family heroes and scoundrels. Since that time, she has told several Celtic folktales, legends, myths and fairytales.
Kathleen loves investigating and narrating stories from traditional and non-traditional sources. In addition, she enjoys researching topics to create self-penned works that she can tell. Lately, Kathleen has become enamoured with historical narratives, which she often likes to deliver as a close acquaintance of the central characters.
Over the years, Kathleen has developed her storytelling craft and delivered “many-a-tale” throughout the Greater Toronto Area, York Region, Durham Region, Northumberland County and, most recently, Newfoundland. She has also developed workshops related to the application of storytelling.
For the past two years, Kathleen has provided guidance, leadership and direction as Chair of Durham Storytellers. For the five years previous, she was the Public Relations Co-ordinator.
