School Visits

IMG_7511How Can We Connect?

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 large group presentations are full of humor, adorable dog photos and my TOP 7 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 hands-on workshops for small groups on the following topics:

  • Creating Amazing Characters
  • Scary Stories 101
  • Choose your own

SkypeVisits

I would love to join your class for a free 30-minute Q&A via Skype, Google Hangouts or your preferred platform. 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?
