I love talking to kids and adults about writing and reading. I will gladly develop a program to suit your needs. If you are interested in scheduling a visit or event, please contact me to inquire about rates and availability.

Virtual Visits

If your book group or class has read Book Scavenger, I’d be delighted to arrange a free 15-minute Q&A session via Skype.

“[Your Skype call] was AMAZING this morning. The kids were so engaged during your reading, and it was fantastic to see so many of them lining up to ask you questions.  Furthermore, the teachers and I were incredibly impressed by your answers and the way in which you interacted with our sixth graders!  You were truly stellar!”
