Ingrid Nixon is warm, eloquent and witty. She will enter the Town Hall of your heart and set all the bells to ringing.

~ Elizabeth Ellis, master storyteller and author


Ingrid is an excellent teller ... She is funny, elegant, handles personal experience stories with a lot of humor, as well as pathos, and makes folktales quirky and relevant to modern lifetime situations.

~ K.R., listener

Great techniques that I can use to freshen up my 'tried and true' stories, and use to generate my own versions with new material.
