I'm more than happy to tell other specific stories you might request. Please give me a weeks notice to prepare.

I generally like to select stories with you on the day depending on the audience - age, energy, situation etc but I'm happy to discuss story possibilities that are likely to fit in with your current or planned themes or needs ahead of time. Don't hesitate to give me a ring to talk about what stories I might tell on the day.
