School Visits

I’d love to visit your school or classroom! Most of my presentations and workshops are best suited for 3rd to 8th grades, but can be adapted for other age groups. To book a visit, please contact me.

Here are a few presentation options I offer:

An inspirational presentation on the path to publication focusing on the importance of reading, practicing writing, and revising work in order to become an author.
