Author Website: hollyschindler.com

Author Address: Springfield, MO USA

Genres: Realistic fiction, literary fiction. (Also romance, issue-driven problem novels, middle grade, YA.) I have two novels currently in development: THE JUNCTION OF SUNSHINE AND LUCKY (MG - Dial), and FERAL (YA - HarperCollins).

Presentations: I taught Freshman Composition at the collegiate level, and also have some experience teaching and tutoring at the K-12 grade level. I enjoy tailoring my presentations thematically to fit a classroom (or library's or book discussion group's) current discussion needs.

Audiences: High school classes, libraries, book discussion groups, writing groups. I'd also love to Skype with a college writing and / or college adolescent literature class. Even if your group doesn't exactly fall into these categories, get in contact! I adore talking about literature / writing and meeting fellow book nuts (both adults and teens)...

Available Times: I'm a full-time, home-based author, and can be flexible to accommodate your class or group.

No recording of Skype Sessions without permission from the author.

No Cost Meet the Author Visit: 10-15 minutes (to do a test-run, and to discuss the interests of your group).

In-Depth Visit Length: Roughly 1 hour, but the length can be negotiated to fit your group's needs.

In-Depth Visit Cost: All fees are negotiable.

Prerequisites: I ask that all audiences be familiar with my work. A Blue So Dark, a novel that explores mental illness and creativity as well as the mother-daughter bond, was released to critical acclaim; the novel earned a starred review in Booklist, was named one of Booklist's Top 10 First Novels for Youth, received a silver medal in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards, and won a gold medal in the IPPYs. Playing Hurt, a romance between two former athletes, is also now available. Please make sure your group has read A Blue So Dark and / or Playing Hurt before Skyping.
