I always looked up to the night sky and I am blessed to be living in the Pembrokeshire National Park, away from city lights. This section is what motivated my interests in mythologies and storytelling as I wondered: what did other cultures see in the sky? The answers, I am discovering, are diverse and fascinating.

I can offer tellings of star stories from around the world, also involving the Moon, the Sun and planets. The stories can be accompanied by a slide show of astronomical images and interspersed with a touch of astronomy. They would beautifully complement star gazing activities.

Prompted by the lock-downs, some of these stories are now part of the Tales of a Starry Night podcast.
