Schedule me for your school event! Right now, I am offering a limited number of virtual and in-person visits for the 2022-2023 school year, due to my writing and illustrating schedule. But I’d love to find a time to visit your school.

I am an author-illustrator and mother of two elementary school students.  I am happy to work with you to tailor the visit length, format, and content to address the needs and interests of your organization. Whether it’s a handful or a school full, I share my knowledge of writing and illustration to engage and entertain.

Choose from the sample themes below, or work with me to customize programs to meet your needs. Most programs can be combined with hands-on activities.
