Praise for Blodeuedd’s Tale:

‘Your storytelling technique is very fine. Your inflection, intonation, and power and resolve to deliver stories is absolutely stunning. It reminded us of another storyteller, Hugh Lipton’ Dr I.C. Psychologist.

The cadence of the story, the beginning and the development and the aim, objective, of the story which you put into just by your delivery, in your intonation and your movement, & your whole coruscation  of  your delivery made the thing come alive’ Retired Psychologist

‘I want to absolutely echo the praise of your storytelling, it’s been enchanting  & the fact that we’ve sort of sat glued here for  two hours. You know what they say about attention spans. You did something … magical, for us’  Quaker Preacher
