I love coming to schools and libraries to meet my readers. I’m happy to visit classrooms or larger groups in an auditorium. I do talks on how I became a writer, what inspired my books, the importance of research, character development, and point of view. I’m also happy to tailor my talk to your needs. I always leave plenty of time at the end for questions — that’s my favorite part. I’m also happy to sign copies of my books.
Skype visits are a great way for me to talk with readers far away. I’ve visited with kids in rural areas in Missouri, Ohio, Kansas, Colorado, and Vermont who would otherwise not have the opportunity to meet an author. My 30-minute moderated Q&A Skype visits are free.
Contact me for information on longer visits.

Conferences & Festivals
I frequently speak to adult groups of educators and writers at state and national conferences and festivals and enjoy giving keynote addresses as well as teaching workshops and breakout sessions, and participating in panel discussions.
