I am an author who loves to visit schools and speak to students about my books and the writing process. I can tailor my presentations for students from preschool to high school.

Here are some of the benefits of having an author visit your school:

  • Promotes literacy: Author visits can help to promote literacy in your school by exposing students to the joy of reading and writing.
  • Reinforces classroom learning: Author visits can help to reinforce classroom learning by providing students with a real-world example of how writing is used.
  • Provides students with inspiration: Author visits can provide students with inspiration to pursue their own writing dreams.
  • Is a fun and engaging experience: Author visits are a fun and engaging experience for students of all ages.
