Presentations: I'm happy to work with teachers and book clubs to develop a SKYPE visit that will best suit your needs. As a former teacher, I know that each group of readers can be different.

For groups that may not know my work, or have only a subset of students who've worked on one of my books, I generally do a brief reading followed by an open-ended Question and Answer session about writing. (I'm also a former actor, so my readings have a performance element. :))

I can do sessions that focus on student writing issues, or in which students want to know about the writer's life.
I'm also happy to do sessions on "Chanda's Secrets" and "Chanda's Wars" that focus on the people and situations I encountered while researching the HIV/AIDS pandemic and child soldiers in subSaharan Africa.

Audiences: I'm most comfortable with 9th grade through adult, although I've also done successful school visits for precocious students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades.

Available Times: I'm fine for any time I'm not traveling. Please contact me to set up a date.

No recording of Skype Sessions without permission from the author.

No Cost Meet the Author Visit: 10 - 15 minutes

In-Depth Visit Length: Your choice. I've done live-visit sessions as long as an hour and a quarter, although I think SKYPE sessions are best when they're somewhat shorter.

In-Depth Visit Cost: $150 for up to an hour seems reasonable. But please contact me to discuss number of classes in attendance and length of session
