In the schools

Book a school visit through Authors Unbound.

As a former teacher, I am passionate about connecting with students in whatever way possible---in person, virtually, or through letters. My talks are geared for elementary through sixth grade.

A great visit checklist

  • Have students think of questions in advance – maybe write them down so they don’t forget!
  • Teacher and aides stay in the classroom.
  • One class at a time works best. If that is difficult then no more than 100 children at a time.
  • A library or a classroom is a perfect setting for an author visit. 
  • Make my books available to students. A visit is more meaningful if the students have heard the work.
