I’ve been a teacher at some capacity all of my adult life. With a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and a BS in Education, I am at home in the classroom.
In an interactive presentation geared for the very young that incorporates an age appropriate overview of an element of writing, I’ll read a book I’ve written, share a bit about my process, and I’ll incorporate drama/theatre activities for an enriching and inspiring experience. (please indicate which book you’d like me to share) $80
I'll share with your students the process of my path to publishing. Students will learn how I come up with story ideas, a bit about me and my writing practice, and the steps I take to get the manuscript from my desk to a publisher and into the hands of readers. In this enriching fun approach, students will have a chance to ask questions as well as hear one book of mine read aloud. (please let me know which one you’d like me to share) one hour-$100
This author visit is based on my Kirkus starred review book, “Mindful Like Grandma.” I’ll share the story, we will discuss an element of picture book writing, I’ll share the steps of mindfulness, and we will conclude with an exercise in mindfulness that they can apply in their everyday lives. $100
This author visit is based on my award-winning literary non-fiction series, "Good Trick, Walking Stick." I will share my books, a bit about how I wrote them, and elements of non-fiction. We’ll learn what it takes to be a treasure detector searching for story nuggets, and we will be inspired to seek for new story ideas to use in future writing projects. $100
