Visits & Events

I can talk about Starfish, bullying, my writing process, writing tips and tricks, and navigating the world of publishing. I can do Q&As. I can talk about how tips and tricks from my life as a journalist help me as an author. And I love to talk to libraries about how to market themselves and how to work with authors. Flexible is my middle name. (Actually, it’s not.)

Just contact me, and let’s talk about what you need for your students, library, or community. Then we can work together to create something for just about any budget.
