Hello, my favorite people in the world. As a former Headstart teacher and a children's library associate, I know firsthand how hard you work to nurture and inspire children to become lifelong readers. Thank you for all the creative joy (not to mention patience) you bring to your work.

Arrange a Visit
I love to visit schools and libraries. I offer a variety of programs, from large group presentations about how I became a writer and my writing process, to small writing workshops. I also frequently speak to adults. Please contact me so we can work out a program to suit your needs.
I can also visit via Skype, where I do free, 30 minute presentations to groups familiar with my books.
