Marita has been a storyteller and writer as long she can remember. She spent her childhood with her grandfather, a shepherd who collected archaeological artefacts that inspired her to tell stories of magic and wonder about them. Her love of Celtic myths and folktales shaped her life and she has told tales as a guest storyteller on three continents. In Scotland, she was mentored by some of the country’s finest older generations of storytellers, including George Macpherson of Skye.
Marita contributes talks and tales at international conferences and story gatherings, and published two German books on Celtic fairy beliefs. She enjoys sharing the fun, the wisdom and the depth of folktales from all over the globe with adults and children in workshops and story sessions.
