Presentations for Children
I love to talk about writing almost as much as writing itself. I’ve got lots of presentations I’ve prepared, but I’m always happy to tailor a session to your students’ or event’s needs. Here are some examples…
I also do FREE 20-minute virtual Q&As with classrooms and book clubs that have read my book.
Contact me to schedule one.
Plus I’m part of the Spooky Middle Grade group, which does FREE 20-minute Skype Q&As with multiple authors.
Do you use StorySeer? You can book me through there too.
If you’re at a school in Austin, Texas, you can get a FREE school visit with me through the Writers League of Texas Project WISE.
Presentations for Adults
From webinars, to workshops, to keynotes, I can teach and inspire writers at all levels. Here are some suggested presentations, but I’m also happy to talk about plot and structure, finding the heart of your story, marketing and cracking conference proposals, and any other topic you’d like.

Rates are for presentations only. For out-of-town rates, also budget for travel expenses. I give discounts for multi-day bookings, so partner with other schools and libraries in your area to get lower rates. Virtual sessions can be done through Skype, Google Hangout or other services.
