Lisa Schroeder is the author of six young adult novels, including The Bridge From Me to You; I Heart You, You Haunt Me; Chasing Brooklyn; and The Day Before. She's also the author of the middle grade Charmed Life series and the It's Raining Cupcakes trilogy. Her books have been translated into several languages and have been selected for state reading lists.

She is a native Oregonian and lives in Beaverton with her husband and two sons. When she's not writing, you'll probably find Lisa reading, walking the dog, watching her favorite TV shows, or baking yummy treats. 

“I love doing school visits and talking to kids about reading and writing. My presentations are not the kind you've heard a hundred times, about being an author. I have worked hard to make my presentations educational and entertaining, and I give them real tips they can go back and use in the classroom to help them with their writing," says Lisa.

Description of the Author’s Presentation

Maximum number of presentations per day: 3
Grades K-8

A full day visit includes up to three presentations per day maximum. She is also available to have lunch with up to 20 motivated students at no extra charge. Lisa is happy to work with schools to tailor a presentation to meet the needs of the students. 

For grades K-2, Lisa takes students on an imagination safari, where they visit the jungle, meet friends from her picture books, and discover writing tips and secrets hidden deep in the jungle!

For grades 3-5, Lisa and the students visit an imaginary bakery and discover how baking and writing are similar and go over the "essential ingredients" necessary to make the students' writing simply delicious!

For middle schoolers, Lisa inspires students to believe that anything is possible. Using her own very bumpy road to publication as an example, Lisa shares her "secrets to success," as well as, how reading and writing play a key no matter what path in life you choose.

Lisa is also available to Skype with students in book clubs, classrooms, or library events. She is happy to arrange a free 15 to 20 minute question and answer Skype session or participate in a longer event for $150.
