School Visits

SkypeVisits (2)

One of my favorite things about being an author is inspiring students to create their own stories. I would love to visit your students in grades 3-8 to get them excited about reading and writing. My typical sessions take students behind-the-scenes, showing them what it takes to write, revise and sell a book. Warning: there will be cute dog pictures! I can also tailor sessions specifically to your school’s needs.

Great news!!! For Fall 2019, I’m offering a SUPER AWESOME pre-order special for schools in the OKC Metro Area. Visits are free for schools that pre-order 50 or more books:

I would love to join join your class for a free 30-minute Q&A via Skype or Google Hangouts. I will answer students’ burning questions about the writing process, such as:

  • How do you publish a book?
  • Where do you get your ideas?
  • How can I get started writing?
  • As well as creepily personal questions like how old are you and how much money do you make 🙂
