In school visits, I can present different programs connected with different books for different age-groups. In addition to book-specific presentations, I can provide workshops or programs about writing poetry, researching and writing nonfiction, and the publishing process. My standard fee is $400 for a full day (up to four presentations). Adjustments can be made for shorter visits.

The length of a presentation can be anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on what is needed. I enjoy introducing my audience to the people about whom I have written by reading excerpts from my books, showing pictures of them, and through audience participation. I have also developed entertaining PowerPoint presentations related to some of the books. In addition, I am happy to discuss the writing process itself and my experience in that area.
