I always look forward to meeting my readers - virtually and in person. At present, I am especially looking forward to working with students in grades 4-6 who have read or want to read my upcoming middle-grade novel, Chester and the Magic 8 Ball

In addition to public events, I am also available for virtual or in-person visits with your book club. Use the form on my Contact page to reach out to discuss possibilities, your ideas, and your budget. ​

​For Chester and the Magic 8 Ball:

As a former teacher and school principal, I enjoy working with students of all ages. My presentations are interactive, fun, informative, curriculum-based, and inspirational. I am scheduling classroom and grade-level visits for spring 2023. Please use the Contact page to connect. 

For The Surrogate: 

My experiences as an educator and writer include many topics that might be of interest to your group or organization, including:

  • Gun violence in America and what we can do about it

  • The role of public education in helping troubled children and families

  • Finding your courage and your voice as a writer

  • The writing journey:  A long and winding road

  • Writing a legacy book for your family

  • And of course, her debut novel, The Surrogate

If you are interested in putting together an event with me, use the Contact page to connect.
