Dr. Lockett is often known as The Normal Storyteller. But, his tales are anything but NORMAL. He often uses dialects, vocal sound effects, and animal imitations in his stories. Lockett lives in Normal, IL and travels all across the United States and as far away as China, South Korea and Taiwan to give workshops and tell stories. He has given more than 4,000 programs and is the winner of multiple awards for his storytelling CDs. In addition to folk tales, Mike loves to give Mother Goose programs, spooky tales, Bible stories Civil War stories and more. Dr. Lockett will work with venues to plan programs to meet their needs.
