Through Story Trails  I work with people of all ages and backgrounds, creating and nurturing stories that free imagination and creativity, and help us grow.

Stories are powerful.  They can give us hope, help us understand one another, and enable us to grow. 

We were warned that Algebra was going to be really difficult, whereas Einstein was told that it was a hunt for a creature known as ‘ X ‘ and that when you caught it, it had to tell you its name.

Keith Johnstone (storyteller)

I make all kinds of stories, from:

  • Interactive storytelling theatre;
  • Alternate Reality Games;
  • Choose-your-own-adventure games;
  • Fiction podcasts.

I believe that we are all creative, and that stories are one of the most powerful ways of channeling our creativity. They help us to understand and care about each other; they even help us to learn.

One of our recent Toddler Trails ended with a story all about Boggles…

The Most Important Boggle Story Ever Told

We are living through a tricky time right now, and folk aren’t in a position to come along to one of my interactive shows. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a Story Trail! Listen to the new Story Trails podcast micro-series …

Story Trails: The Interviews

The full series is due to launch in October 2020, but you can listen now to ten minisodes, featuring:

  • an interview with a magical being from the enchanted realm;
  • a creative mission that will see your work featured on the storytrails website;
  • a chapter from the penultimate draft of my children’s book (after the ten minisodes, you can continue to listen to the book here).

The show is free to listen to, and will remain free after the complete series launch in October. Let’s spread some magic.

Storytelling is an indispensable human preoccupation, as important to us all – almost – as breathing.
