Teachers & Librarians
Hello, my favorite people in the world. As a former Headstart teacher and a children's library associate, I know firsthand how hard you work to nurture and inspire children to become lifelong readers. Thank you for all the creative joy (not to mention patience) you bring to your work.

Arrange a Visit
I've visited schools and libraries across the country, and would love to visit yours. I offer large group, interactive presentations, including a slide show, a talk about how I became a writer and how my ideas become books, a Q & A, and a fun, pre-writing, brainstorming activity. I can also do more focused writing workshops with smaller groups. All my visits are coordinated with teachers or group leaders, making sure I meet your specific needs.
I also do free Skype visits, up to thirty minutes, with groups familiar with my work.
