Middle and High School Visits How I Became A Writer!   The focus is on writing as a career and how writing and effective communication supports all careers.

Classroom Visits   Around 10 minutes each   I usually talk with the children and perhaps read them a story I am working on.  I also like them to share with me the stories they are writing! I can visit up to five classrooms.

Book autographing  I take time to meet students and autograph their books.

Parent Session  I'll be glad to meet with parents and the community to discuss books and reading.

Every school may personalize my time with them in whatever way best meets their needs.
