School Visits

School and Library Visits

Currently booking school and library visits for Spring 2013!

As a former English teacher and middle school librarian, there is no group of people I feel more at home talking to than kids, which is why I love doing school and library visits.  In the past two years, I have visited over twenty five middle and high schools as a speaker, and those days have truly been some of the most rewarding to me as an author.

Past Presentation topics have included:

Becoming a writer, the writing and revision process, brainstorming ideas, setting goals and chasing dreams, writing myths, the practical aspects of a career as a writer, the publication process, writing building blocks and resouces, etc.

Most presentations are very question-driven, which makes for a unique experience every time!

Available Presentations

Full Day Visit: (May be split between two schools)

–Up to three large group presentations

– Two smaller group sessions, i.e.–writing workshop, book club meeting, etc.

–Book signing time (optional)

–I am also happy to include a lunch with interested students, interview with school paper, and parent/teacher discussion time.

Please contact me directly at to schedule a visit or inquire about fees.  Travel can be waived if I am in town for another event, so be sure to check the events page to see if I’ll be in your area!

Half Day Visit:

One to two large group presentations

–One small group session

–Signing time, lunch with students/teachers, interview (if desired)


The above outlines are typical of the school presentations I have done.  However, I am very flexible and willing to work to tailor your author visit to your school or library’s particular interests.
