School & Library Visits

In-Person

I’d love to talk to your teens and tweens about writing, and middle grade and young adult literature! I currently offer the following presentations:

Like my upper middle grade fantasy novels, my presentations are geared toward young readers in grades 4 and up. However, I’m also available to speak to high-school students as well as adult groups of teachers, librarians, and parents. Presentations are about an hour long, but can be made longer or shorter to meet the needs of your group.

My education and background:

Fees: Fees are negotiable, but typically range from $300-600 for half-day/full-day school visits or $100/hour for library visits.

Skype

Skype visits usually last 20-30 minutes and usually center around a Q&A time. There is no charge for a Skype visit, but they do need to be booked a few weeks in advance.
