School Visits

Fun, Inspiring School Visits!

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! Students will…

  • Get answers to their burning questions!
  • Learn how I got started writing, and how they can too!
  • Laugh, have fun and, most importantly, get inspired to create!

“Of all the authors I have had students connect with over the years, you are the best one yet.”

There will be laughs, adorable dog pictures, plus a book signing!

Virtual Author Q&As

I offer a variety of 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!
