Storyteller Bios: 

Harnessing the healing power of stories and humor helped Deborah Mayaan recover from serious illness. She coaches people with chronic illness in finding their healing pathway.

Georgette “George” Rosberg is originally from a one stop-light town in Upstate New York.  She moved to Tucson in 2001.  She is a volunteer, photographer, project manager and meetup organizer. In her free time she plays with her dogs and plays team trivia with her friends.

Megan Smithey is a biomedical research scientist, who secretly just wants to be left alone with an old dog and a good book. A transplant to the desert from the Pacific Northwest, she is surprised that her “temporary stop” in Tucson has lasted eight years, and that her tolerance for rain and gloomy weather has been completely ruined by living in this beautiful place. Once again, the universe has proven her “plan” irrelevant and a tiny bit naïve, so now she’s trying to lessen the stranglehold on the reins. This is proving a great idea, yet a difficult practice, over and over and over and over…

More bios coming soon!


Carolyn Langford Hussein Fort detests writing bios and instead chose a few nouns and adjectives (and one adverb) that give the basic idea. She remains a Luddite, Southerner, uncomfortable daughter, lover of most creatures great and small, occasionally successful friend, descendant of a short line of intellectual snobs, astonished partner/fiancé, olive enthusiast, introverted exhibitionist, amusedly aging, and unabashed devotee of Meat Loaf.


Venue: The Screening Room, 127 E. Congress Street, Tucson.

Do You have a story? Contact us!


Storytelling is a way to make connections with diverse and different people that you may not meet in your every day life. Because these stories are from our lives they may be amazing, messy, enlightening, disturbing, and entertaining . . . and more.


Six invited storytellers have ten minutes to talk about a specific theme. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller.
