Writing is storytelling ...


... and storytelling is a compelling way to share a message.

  • Storytelling expresses universal experiences and shared humanity.

  • From earliest times, oral histories have made their way from person to person, tribe to tribe, continent to continent. 

  • Writing, publication, and widening literacy help share the messages of storytelling. 

As a writer, I use my craft to tell stories ... and share the messages. 

For example, Boris Bear Remembers His Manners (published by Current USA) helps pre-school and elementary kids learn courtesy in a fun and engaging way.

The tale of Boris is that of a well-meaning young bear who just can't remember his manners and doesn't understand why they are essential ... until he goes to lunch at school! 

The Boris Bear Learning Collection includes:

  • Boris Bear Remembers His Manners Big Book (above)

  • Plush Boris Bear Hand Puppet (left)

  • Bee Sure Honey Bee Stickers

"It's been a privilege to work with Andrea in many different facets of  writing over the years. I know I can count on her to deliver what is requested and more, as she never fails to make the project her own by bringing her own innovation and curiosity into play. Her professionalism is beyond reproach."
