In these tales from places that might have been, you’ll encounter a reluctant fortuneteller, an amorous troll, a pair of talking monkeys, a speechless princess, treacherous siblings, brave heroines, handsome heroes and, perhaps, the answer to a question: is it wisdom or luck that's most important in the life of a human being?
Sarah Saulter grew up in the woods of the Pacific Northwest where she developed an affinity for wild things, and for the wild and mysterious parts of human nature. She told her first tale at the age of three, and has been telling stories ever since.
She loves telling tales, because a story is never really finished. It is recreated every time it’s told. And each time you revisit it, it changes, showing you whatever you most needed to discover, or to remember at that moment.
Now a resident of San Diego, CA, Sarah has been a professional storyteller for over 15 years. She has performed at the Exchange Place at the National Storytelling Festival, and has been a featured storyteller at colleges, universities, and storytelling festivals throughout California.

“I loved hearing these rich old tales told with humor and respect by someone who understands the use of metaphor, who understands that there are layers of meaning, who understands that there's a whole hunk of sex slithering just beneath the surface, and while she doesn't play it up, she doesn't deny it either.” Katy Rydell, Storyteller—Portland, ME
“I listened to "The Enchanted Storks" yesterday, and it brought tears to my eyes. So you know you're doing it right!” Aaron Shepard, author—Olympia, WA
