School Visits

I love talking with students!

I am passionate about helping students recognize their own potential to generate ideas, research, revise, and create stories they love. My presentations draw on my background as an author and the stories behind my stories, showing students how they can bring the same process to their own ideas.

I am booking virtual school visits for grades K-5 for the 2020-2021 school year!

I am available for one-hour or full-day presentations on “Writing What You Know–And What You Don’t .” Presentations focus on: idea generation, observation, research, and the writing/revision process, especially related to science writing.

To inquire about availability and rates, please contact me through my contact form or email me at

A Typical Visit

  • Individual one-hour visits for each grade level from 1st to 5th
  • 2-3 class readings for K (20-30 minutes each)
  • Lunch with the author
