Megan Hicks survived the Baby Boom with her sense of humor intact.

With equal measures of talent and charisma she delights children, inner children, imaginary friends and grownups with her unique take on the storyteller's art. A favorite of audiences and organizers throughout the Mid-Atlantic States, she performs for schools, libraries, festivals, retirement communities, hospice centers and professional conferences.

Storytelling has taken her from juvenile detention centers to the FBI Academy, from Punxsutawney to Perth (Western Australia) to Peru.

In 2000, she won the title National Storyteller of the Year. In 2002 she released her first CD, "Groundhogs Meet Grimm," which received a Parents'

Guide to Children's Media Award, a Storytelling World Honor award, and in 2010 a NAPPA Honors award. Her second audiobook, "What Was Civil About that War." was a finalist for the 2005 Audie Award for best original work and also received a Parents' Choice Silver medal.
