Welcome to my children's storytelling podcast.  

My name is Kathleen T. Pelley and I am a picture book author, storyteller, and speaker.

I was born in Glasgow, Scotland, a country famous for its heather dappled mountains, lochs, tartan, shaggy highland cattle, soggy summer days, and of course - a veritable treasure chest of stories.

My own passion for stories stemmed before I could even read or write, by listening to them on the radio during the BBC Children's Story Hour.  It was there that I fell in love with the music of our language and the magic of stories.

I hope you will find some stories here to enchant your children into the marvelous world of STORY!

You can learn more about my podcast on the ABOUT page.
