Engaging, Educational, Memorable School Visits

I love signing books and talking to classes! I’m available for in person and video visits. Please contact me about setting up an event. Now BOOKING for 2023! My current schedule on the Events page. Send me a message to request a school visit through my contact form below.

I love meeting with readers — from avid readers to reluctant readers! I’m a former elementary media specialist who grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota. I also taught writing to adults for 13 years at Metropolitan State University. Over the last several years, I published 10 books and am working on many more. I love sharing these experiences with students and encouraging them in their own writing and life goals. Learn more on my printable visit flyer.

Tailored Visits Based On What Your Kids Need

I offer tailored visits for reading groups, classroom visits, and up to auditorium-sized talks. Fees vary based on what you would like me to do. I can meet with multiple classes throughout the school day and present to larger groups of kids in an auditorium-style session as well. Prices range from $300 to $1500. Fees are negotiable with book sales component for FEARLESS.

If travel is involved, additional mileage and lodging fees may apply. Some local hotels have been willing to offer free lodging in the interest of bringing in the arts to benefit the community! 🙂
