Welcome to the web pages of

Tales from the Story Bag
Storyteller Harlynne Geisler
San Diego, California

These pages reveal the many hats that I as a Freelance Professional Performer and Writer wear at different times. Be sure to check my event listing weekly to find out where I'm giving public shows and workshops in California and (occasionally) Illinois. It changes as often as daily as bookings come in.

If you'd like to see photos of me in action, click here.

If you'd like to order A Giant, An Imp, and Two Jacks, my tape of funny, fabulous fairy tales from Scotland, Ireland, and England, click here. If you want to know about my story that is in the August House book More Ready-to-Tell Tales from Around the World, click here.

If you're curious about my book, check out the Storytelling Professionally; The Nuts and Bolts of a Working Performer pages--the review page gives the best description of its contents.

If you're thinking about booking me, look at the pages that cover the type of storytelling or workshops that suit your needs best [listed below].

Please don't forget to e-mail me with your comments about these pages especially if you have trouble loading the pages due to the graphics.

Thanks for stopping by!
