Author Visits

The age groups listed are suggestions, I will not be a stickler if your kids fall outside the age group of the presentation you want, or if you have a mixed age group, it is up to you which presentation you want.

Presentations for Groups aged K-3rd

For younger kids, I will come to your classroom, library, or other event, to do a reading of one of my picture books along with a discussion about its topics. Currently, I am offering two options for book readings and discussion. The first is “Do Owls Have Tongues? And Other Big Questions.” The discussion centers around communication, how to find safe adults, and building confidence to ask questions.

“Do Owls Have Tongues?” is a delightful book with a ton of fun questions that will get kids giggling and thinking. Not only does this open discussions about the topics in the books, it also helps kids come forward with their own big questions and find the confidence to explore their world.

The second book reading and discussion option is “My Favorite Shoes.” This is a story about a young girl in foster care learning she is just as special as her peers on her journey to adoption. This discussion would be an introduction for the students about what foster care is to help educate children on different life experiences and de-stigmatize foster care and the children who are part of that system.

Presentations for groups aged 4th Grade +

For children of the 4th grade, or about 9 years old, and up, I offer a presentation that deals with overcoming obstacles, how to work towards goals, and keeping the joy in your life. I talk about my journey as an author, my inspiration for writing, and the hard work it takes to reach your dreams.

This includes a workshop portion where the kids get to participate in one of two options: Either we can dissect a book they have read or a story they are familiar with, or we can create a story from scratch with the kids.

Ordering Signed Books

I love to offer the option for parents to order signed copies of the books that I can bring during my visits! They can do so through this page, and for local schools I can bring flyers to send home with students ahead of time. For locations where it is not feasible for me to bring flyers in person ahead of time I can also email the flyers to the school.
