School Visits

Large Group Presentations for Schools

My high-energy, fun-filled, large-group presentations are perfect for readers in grades 3-8!!! I will encourage kids to find their voice and tell the stories only they can tell, as well as introducing my books and important lessons I’ve learned along the way. There will be laughs, adorable dog pictures, plus a book signing!

These are a great way to get kids excited about stories and show them that authors are real people, just like them. I have led hundreds of author visits (both virtual and in-person), and there’s nothing better than seeing that spark when students realize that they can do this too!

What’s included in your in-person author visit package?

  • Three large-group assemblies, 45 minutes each, plus Q&A
  • The opportunity to order signed and personalized books, plus a book signing
  • Limited edition bookmarks for every student who orders

Virtual Author Visits

I offer a variety of engaging, high-energy virtual school visit options to meet your needs. My 30-minute Q&As are so much fun! I start with a quick introduction to me and my books, then open the floor to student questions on the writing and publishing process. These visits cost $25, and students will come away excited to create!
