I would love to visit your school in-person or virtually and meet your students! I also do library programs, bookstore events, faculty development, and preschool readings. I offer a variety of programs, and am open to mixing and matching or brainstorming with you. My goal is for you to come away feeling good about my visit to your school. Please see the "school visits" tab on this site for all of my offerings.
I'm an experienced speaker for all ages, and am happy to visit and speak to book clubs, moms groups and aspiring adult writers about the writing process and the business of children’s books, the publishing industry and breaking in, as well as talking to adults or students about making a living as a writer.
Are you a picture book writer with a manuscript that needs a little bit (or a lot) of guidance? I offer a manuscript critique service as well. Please go to the Critiques and Consults tab to see pricing.
Please use this form to contact me. I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours. Thank you!
I love to get regular mail too!
