Experienced in working with children, I have spoken in over 600 schools, as well as to groups of teachers, parents, librarians, and writers. When contacting a publisher, please call and ask for the Author Appearance department. I speak about my life as a writer and the writing process, use slides and visual materials, and have students participate in my presentations. All talks are geared to the age of the audience. Presentations are 45 minutes long, including time for questions and answers from the audience. (Maximum of 3 presentations per day) I will autograph any books ordered by students or teachers during school visits. These may be ordered through my publishers or by contacting a local bookstore.
