Author Visits

I enjoy talking with students and teachers about writing and how books are published. I share my own stories, and I use both color transparencies and Power Point presentations for assemblies.

If you would like to schedule a visit at your school, please contact my publisher, Clarion Books, at 1-800-225-3362. Clarion can help you arrange the visit and order books at a discount.

I also have a joint presentation with fellow author Laura Garbers ( Both of us have historical books for children set in Kansas.
