Visits

Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could come to your school, tell some funny stories, teach some great writing secrets AND get you out of that health unit on flossing? Yeah? Well I think so, too.Check out my School Visit options and pick your favorite!

ONE BOOK, ONE SCHOOL, ONE (FREE!) AUTHOR VISIT

By far my most popular school visit package! Choose and order one of my books for your school, class or group to read. Then on “Celebration” day, I will come in at no charge and host a combination of the following activities: Author Talk, Student Quiz Show, “Insider Info” Power Point presentation (with photos of places and people who inspired parts of my book), Student Skits, Q&A session, Book Signing and Lunch with the Author. It’s a great way to build a sense of intra-school community, promote literacy and add richness and depth to your students’ reading experience. Click HERE for more information!

 

FROM ROUGH DRAFT TO BOOKSTORE SHELF

Follow one book from scratch copy to finished product! See various versions, editor’s notes, critique partner’s criticisms, rejection slips, galley copies and more! Learn how authors brainstorm their stories, submit their manuscripts, negotiate a contract, earn royalties and (hopefully!) make a living.

THE WRITE WAY WORKSHOP

Enhance your classroom’s writing unit by arranging a custom-built workshop on any of the following topics (or suggest one of your own!):

The Idea Pot or Where Do I Get My Ideas?
The Three P’s: People, Places and Plot
Be Wise: Revise!
Unearthing the Treasure: Research in Writing
EEEK! or, Writing a Great Mystery
