Since 1991, British storyteller, humorist and raconteur Simon Brooks has been telling to audiences from all over the world. Simon became a full-time, professional storyteller in 2003, released his first CD in 2006, and his first collection of folk and fairy tales in 2018. Simon has won awards and honors for his storytelling albums from Storytelling World and Parent's Choice. Simon travels all over New England and to other parts of the USA, and has told his tales in Europe. He presents anywhere you want him, be it a school, college, library, festival, camp, hospital, business, restaurant, coffee house or home.
Simon has completely reinvented himself to accommodate on-line presentations and workshops. These are high-quality events with much in the way of new material and presentation styles.
At the onset of the COVID-19 ‘lock-down’ Simon immediately recorded a podcast for kids - his audio rendering of Lindyline, an adventure story for young people. He also began a weekly kid’s show - Wednesday Stories - which ended mid-summer 2020. Another weekly on-line show Simon produces is Friday with Friends, geared for parents and other grown-ups, where he virtually chats with storytelling and musician friends. This lighthearted on-line event has become a staple for some viewers because of its humor and light atmosphere.
Simon lives in New London, New Hampshire, New England, New World with his wife, two children, a cat, and a dog called Moe. He is a Children’s Literacy Foundation presenter, a member of the National Storytelling Network, North East Story Telling, and the New Hampshire Storytelling Alliance.
