Presentations: Currently for Skype visits I am only offering "meet the author" Q&A or book-specific Q&A sessions.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss in-person presentations.

Audiences: All grades, K-12, or college-level writing or children's literature classes.

Available Times: Contact me to discuss scheduling.

No recording of Skype Sessions without permission from the author.

No Cost Meet the Author Visit: 15 minutes

In-Depth Visit Length: In-person presentations are generally 30-50 minutes, depending on audience.

In-Depth Visit Cost: At present, I am only offering short, free visits via Skype. Please visit my website for information about in-person visits and costs.

Prerequisites: All visits will be more productive and enjoyable if students are familiar with at least one or two of my books. For book-specific Q&A sessions, students must have read the book in question beforehand. Things also tend to go most smoothly if students have prepared questions ahead of time.
