Visits and Events

I love to visits classrooms, libraries and conferences. My basic school visit focuses on my love of writing from an early age, starting with the first book I ever wrote (In third grade. It was a rather miserable attempt at writing …bringing hope to kids everywhere), and how I overcame doubts to follow my dream to become a writer. I also discuss the importance of revision.

A Powerpoint projector and screen are necessary. Participation and laughter are encouraged. Water balloons and tomatoes are not.

Additionally, I offer hands-on workshops based on Class Dismissed, The Pet War and The Rotten Adventures of Zachary Ruthless, perfect for grades 3rd through 7th.

I’m also happy to visit a classroom via Skype, Zoom! or the virtual application of your choice.

You can inquire about dates, get fees and all that stuff through the form at the bottom of this page. I’ll send you a brochure and any other information you need.
