Past Events

Such an honor to speak to different groups about my writing and my books.

School and library visits rank up there with some of my favorites since I get to interact with students and encourage them to be creative with their own writing. Reading my picture books to them always brings a smile to my face.

Take a few minutes to browse through some of my past events and drop me a line if you are interested in scheduling a presentation for your school, library, or organization. I'm sure we can work out something that will be fun and interesting!

Had planned on a school visit in April and would have met these students in person. Here they are posing with copies of my book before school had been cancelled.

I was very happy to be part of a Zoom presentation with the class to tell them about researching these women. Loved answering students' questions and interacting with them and their teachers.

Reading to groups

I always enjoy meeting new people and talking about writing. Whether I'm reading to students, discussing the writing process or my research, or simply greeting people browsing at a book fair, I'm thrilled to be an author. I simply love sharing my work.
