My Visits

School, Library, Skype & other Speaking Opportunities

One of the best things about being an author is having the opportunity to engage with students, librarians, and teachers.

In my main presentation (“Before Page One”) I talk about the moment in Senegal, West Africa that sparked my middle grade novel along with the writing and revision process. I also discuss the role doubt and determination play in our work, as well as giving students a peek into Senegal. My workshops on the wonder of revision, turning small ideas into great stories, and utilizing the five senses have students ready to write. Tailoring a program for your specific needs is also an option.

I’d love to work with you on finding the best program/programs for you!
