I begin booking my author visits each year in March, for visits that will take place the following school year (September to June). Because of the wide range of my work I am able to provide presentations appropriate for a variety of age groups ranging from K-8th grade. My programs include picture books for the younger grades, and discussions about chapter books, novels and the writing process for older grades. I am also available for regional IRA’s and young author conferences as well as author-in-residence programs for schools interested in hands-on writing workshops for grades 4–8. I am also available for SKYPE visits.
To discuss or arrange a visit to your school, please contact me directly at: email@example.com or if you are interested in having a booking agent who, for a small fee, will handle all the arrangements for your school including the booksales, feel free to contact:

“It was my favorite author visit so far in my 10 year career. I have had nine kids in my office today raving about things you said. You would think a rock star had come to visit yesterday the way the building is buzzing. Thank you for making it so wonderful for me, as well as for my kids.”
