Your students will have a great time working with me!

I’ve presented at young writer workshops and schools for grades 3 through 12 in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

I focus on actively engaging students in discussions on the writing life, how authors find inspiration for their books, the craft of writing, and writing activities.

Students benefit more from a presentation when they have read my books or when the teacher has read one of my books out loud.

Allow an additional 30 minutes for book signing.

Insider tip: Here’s a great way to fund your author visit. Sell books as a fundraiser! Order my books at least 2-3 weeks ahead). Schools receive a great discount.
