Twice Upon a Time Storytellers

Meet Gene and Peggy


After earning his Ph.D. in entomology, Gene took a 10-year career detour into historical museum reenactment.  It was at the Georgia Agrirama and Homeplace 1850 at the Land Between the Lakes where he honed his skills as a storyteller and historical agricultural/folklife interpreter.   After a brief return to the field of entomology, Gene could not resist the siren's call of storytelling.  In 1999, he was appointed to the board of the Tejas Storytelling Association and served as president in 2002.   He is currently president of the Dallas Storytelling Guild and has served on that organization’s board for a number of years.  Gene also served as site director for the Texas Storytelling Festival for over 10 years.  In addition to telling stories as a member of Twice Upon a Time, he can sometimes be heard spinning tales as Mr. Kennedy, the 1870s farmer at Dallas Heritage Village.


Prior to joining Gene on the professional storytelling stage in 1999, Peggy was an award-winning reporter and freelance writer.  She has a B.S. in biology and a master’s degree in journalism.  On the board of the Dallas Storytelling Guild since 2003, Peggy served as president of the non-profit storytelling organization in 2004 and 2012.  Over the years, Peggy has produced a number of story concerts including Sacred Tales for the Texas Storytelling Festival.  She continues to write for The Allen Image, edited the 2008 Healing Storytelling Alliance journal Diving in the Moon, and contributed a chapter to Team Up! Tell in Tandem. Peggy also writes the blog twicetellerstales
