School Visits

Back to School!

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, either virtually or in person. My large group, in-person presentations are full of humor, adorable dog photos and writing tips! Students will…

  • See embarrassing pictures from my childhood 🙂
  • Learn how I got started writing, and how they can too!
  • Laugh, have fun and, most importantly, get inspired to create!

I also offer craft workshops for small groups on the following topics:

  • Story Arcs: Build Powerful Stories Full of Action and Emotion
  • Scary Stories 101, i.e. How to Scare Your Friends and Family
  • Choose your own. Let’s discuss what works for you!


In light of the pandemic, I’m offering FREE 30-minute virtual Q&As (on general topics) or book club chats. It’s true! I also have a brand new On-Demand option (below)! To schedule any type of visit or request more info, fill out the form below.
