Interview with Taffy Thomas
“You can’t write a story, if you can’t tell a story” Taffy Thomas
Gracie Yr. 5
Who inspired you to be an author?
My cousin because he could never hear my stories as he was deaf. A man told him that if you tell a story you will never die as your story will live forever.
How long have you been an author?
I have been an author for around 20 years and a storyteller for around 30 years. I used to eat fire as a circus performer, but at the age of 36 I had a stroke. Storytelling brought my life back.

Who inspired you to be a storyteller?
My grandfather as he was a soldier in World War One. My grandfather had a word for everyone and everyone always had a word for him.
Taffy told us a riddle can you solve it?
I can take you on a journey without wings, wheels or sails. You may travel better with your eyes closed.
