Jim Weiss

Jim Weiss has been a storyteller for over thirty years. In June, 1989, Jim decided to do something more with the craft that he had formerly practiced solely for pleasure. He and his wife, Randy, formed a production company, Greathall Productions, and have thus far produced over forty-six storytelling recordings with enticing titles from classical literature, such as Greek Myths, King Authur and Sherlock Holmes. In addition to the single CDs, Jim has also recorded numerous G.A.Henty titles, and unabridged recordings such as Jean Lee Latham’s Carry On, Mr. Bowditch, and Ralph Moody’s Come on, Seabiscuit. Jim’s Greathall line is the recipient of over 100 major national awards from The American Library Association, Parents’ Choice Foundation, NAPPA, the Parents’ Council, The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, The Film Advisory Board, Parents’ Guide to Children’s Media Award and has received the highest acclaim from countless homeschool journals and professionals. Greathall’s motto is, “Intelligent entertainment for the thinking family” and the line is true to that motif. Jim’s newest releases are Women in Blue or Gray: True Stories from the American Civil War, The Lion of St. Mark, by G.A. Henty, and an unabridged reading of Howard Pyle’s, Men of Iron. Most importantly, he is the creator and producer of The Path to the Stars and Stripes: Inspriational Stories for American Heritage Girls. He and Randy live in Charlottesville, VA, and are the proud parents of their married daughter and son-in-law.
