Mary started storytelling in the early 1980s when she stumbled across the Storytelling Scheme that was being run at that time by Lambeth Libraries, in London, who were looking for more storytellers to pay regular visits to local Under-5s groups and entertain older children in holiday times – and this was the start of the Great Storytelling Revival!

In the 30 years since then, Mary has involved in with TV, radio, writing and consultancy work and in 2013, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from BASE (British Awards for Storytelling Excellence).
