2014 Looms

I am looking forward to scheduling some spooktacular storytelling events this coming Fall 2014.  As always dates fill up so fast!  I am hoping to be with the wonderful Overholser Mansion people again this year; they had some wonderful ideas they shared on my 2013 October Stories season!  In addition, some scary walking tours and other events are in the works.

Libraries or schools interested in a visit from  "The Ghost Teller"  contact soon to discuss details and possibilities!

Thanks Overholser Mansion!




The 2nd Annual "Scary Tales & Twlight Tours" has wrapped up with the Friday night series. Saturday night has been cancelled due to trick-or-treat schedules. The two performances each night were filled and most were first time visitors to the 1903 mansion.


The Ghost Teller enjoyed herself, the manager, staff and volunteers were (as always) wonderful, and the lovely lady of historic Oklahoma City homes was her magnificent self. She seems to enjoy once more basking in the warm glow of lighted chandeliers and many visitors in a house which once welcomed guests on a weekly basis. The echo of those parties and that joyful time seems to dance around each room, glide down the staircase, and whirl around the halls.


The Ghost Teller aka Marilyn A. Hudson was delighted be once more part of raising community awareness and support for this historic gem. Individuals are encouraged to join the Preservation Oklahoma to help save this, and other, important historic locations. They are all part of strange, wonderful , and Mystorical history.
The Ghost Teller encourages all to be well and truly "Haunted by History"....

'OKLAHOMA GHOSTTELLER' AT BBQ & BANSHEES




Oct. 10. 2009


Author Tonya Hacker recently scheduled a series of select evening events at the historic "County Line" resturant in NE Oklahoma City. Called "BBQ and Banshees" they featured presentations by various authors, researchers, personalities and storytellers. The "Oklahoma Ghost Teller" was there on Oct. 10 sharing some real tales of the haunting side of the city. Also there that night was author of "Strange State" Mysteries and Legends of Oklahoma", Cullan Hudson, finishing up a program tour of the state (Ponca City, Honobia, and Enid) before heading back to Puerto Rico and more research and writing. Also, co-author of "Ghostlahoma" Tanya Hacker was there sharing some of her research and providing a tour of parts of the resturant few get to see and sharing stories of its haunted past. All told, a grand night with some wonderful people, good food, and great stories

GRAB YOUR FRIENDS AND HAVE A BACKYARD STORYFEST!


Let's face it, I support the art and the craft of storytelling. A fun and simple way to have fun is gather friends together in a back yard, light a fire pit, and start telling stories!!! Low cost, low-call and loads of fun. (image courtesy of Fresh Eire Design)

PARACON 2009








"The Oklahoma Ghostteller" shared spine tingling tales at the Paracon 2009 in El Reno. Also there were icons, Count Gregore and Dr. Fear. And TV's Patrick Burns,



Kind words for Marilyn Hudson aka "The Oklahoma Ghost Teller" and her appearance as storyteller at the recent Paracon. She encouraged attendees to find and uncover local stories and share those. Then she shared some folklore and tales.:

"Marilyn A. Hudson...Opened this years Oklahoma Paranormal Conference with her skills of story telling! It was a dark and stormy night was the theme of this years event as we celebrated the ghost story. Marilyn helped us all understand the importance of these stories and why we should share them not only in words, but verbally with future generations. She is not unfamilair with the stage by any means, being a seasoned speaker and story teller, she was able to generate excitement with the crowd and help us all realize the importance of story telling. It's not about fact, fiction or the need to believe, it's the art and craft of telling a story and making it fun and entertaining. Thank you Marilyn for doing what you do and we hope that ParaCon guests will remember to tell stories!!!" --G.H.O.U.L.I. website

Best of all one attendee said "...you rock!"
[Thanks Pamela for the pictures!]

WHY LIMIT SO MUCH FUN TO ONE SEASON?

People love ghost stories, love being scared (even a little) and recall that Charles Dickens set his ghost story at Christmas time...
