Present research material for Spies, Soldiers, Couriers, and Saboteurs: Women of the American Revolution

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.

I also have fun at libraries and to organizations to explain the research I conducted for Spies, Soldiers, Couriers, and Saboteurs: Women of the American Revolution. The journey of researching, writing, and publishing this book is one of which I am very proud.

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 middle-grade 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.

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.
