Payment Options

My Payment Policy

I tell stories because I am passionate about storytelling.  I believe that telling one's story and listening to another's story is more than entertaining, It can lead to a greater understanding of another person and a deeper insight into the world and its peoples.  Thus, I would share my stories with you for free................BUT....................

You Knew There Would Be A But...........

I have expenses in getting to your venue.  First I must custom-tailor a program for your audience, practice, practice, practice, transport myself to your venue and tell my heart out!  It requires time and energy, then more time and energy.  So, let's make a deal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

What's the Deal?

Offer to pay me what your feel is  reasonable and fair, taking into consideration the program I have agreed to do for you and the traveling expenses I will incur.  I am also open to the grand old American bartering system.  Let's talk.  We'll work it out!
