Visits & Workshops

Visiting young readers and writers is the best part of any author’s day. I’m available for high-energy, interactive presentations, workshops, and school or library visits. Presentations can be in person or via Skype and customized to meet your needs. 

My Father Said I Could has a parent/teacher curriculum guide full of activities. I want you and the children to come away feeling inspired by our time together at your school, library or event. Preschool readings and book signings are available at your request. Have something special in mind?

Just ask me!

Please go to the contact form on this website to reach me and request a school program, library visit, or speaking engagement today!
