School Visits & Events

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.

Please note: I support equity and inclusivity in the world of books and beyond and am not available for any events that discriminate against marginalized or underrepresented people in any way. 

Virtual Visits

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