Author Visits, Presentations and Workshops

Something I love almost as much as writing books for kids is talking about writing books for kids.  I would love to virtually visit your school, library, or event to share an informative and fun presentation or workshop.  Please contact me for rates and availability.

K-6: Wrestling With Words: Russell Wrestles the Relatives is sure a tongue-twister!  This 45-minute presentation uses the book as a launching pad to discover alliteration and how authors choose which words to use in their stories.  Kids are challenged to think up their own tongue-twisting “wrestler name” using alliteration and given time for Q & A.

6th - Adult: Picture Book in a Day Workshop: This two-hour workshop leads participants through the creation of a picture book from the idea to the satisfying end.  Through the incorporation of brain-storming and writing exercises, the workshop enables attendees to create the framework for a picture book ready for writing and revision by the end of the day.
