I’d love to meet with you indoors, outdoors, or online!
I’m available for book festivals, book readings, author Q&As, and in-person and virtual school visits for grades 3-8 with topics like: “Writing Your Identity,” “Characters and Creators Are Curious Beings!,” “Hey, What’s Your Point of View?,” “Plotting Along,” “Remarkable Repetition,” and more!
I love talking about children’s books, my path to publication and writing process, where I get my inspiration for characters and stories, and how we can all find the courage to tell the stories of our hearts.
Covid permitting, I’m happy to travel if you are not located in my hometown of Austin, Texas.
I’m also scheduling FREE AUTHOR VISITS for World Read Aloud Day on February 1, 2023!
