School Visits and 2018 Appearances
One of my favorite things about being an author is connecting with young readers and writers! I offer several different presentations and writing workshops for schools, libraries, bookstores, and other author venues.
My presentations often focus on a particular book (The Night Diary for example) and how to use our lives to create stories, how to write about identity and family history, how to use food in fiction, my writing process, and my personal path to getting published. I enjoy leading interactive creative writing workshops for both children and adults as well. I also offer a limited amount of free 20-minute Q&A Skype visits. Please email me on my contact page to discuss your specific needs!
