This author is available for in-person and Skype visits. Learn more!

I prefer presenting to students in grades K-5.
I work with teachers to customize presentations to fit their needs.
Most commonly requested programs are:
Building Characters Readers Will Love
Using Powerful Words to Pack a Punch
Making Nonfiction Non-Boring


I also provide follow-up materials for teachers so learning can continue, after I leave.

Generally, a visit lasts for one hour.

For in-person visits: $150 for a one-hour presentation, $100 per hour thereafter for a presentation(s) scheduled on the same day, with a limit of four, total.
No travel expenses charged for schools within 60 miles of her home in Tacoma, Washington.
No charge for Skype visits.
I am happy to work with teachers to arrange a visit plan that fits their budgets.
