In schools, Michael has presented to students from Kindergarten to Grade 7, the "sweet spot" being grades 3-6, since most of his books would appeal to readers in that range.
He has several different presentations, usually accompanied by a PowerPoint deck, along with props, books, and costumes.
His standard visit includes discussion about being an author, what inspired him to become an author, how an author works, and why he, himself, writes scary stories.
A visit from Michael also includes some kind of interactive time with the students, which could be puzzles, demos, or even a magic trick, usually ending with a Q&A with the students.
With educators, he can make a standard author presentation adapted for the audience, but, also about why scary stories appeal to kids, graphic novels, how to engage reluctant readers, and empathy and tolerance (anti-bullying) through reading.

A standard visit and presentation lasts approximately one hour, but it can be flexible to include a little more, or a little less.

For visits to schools and/or school libraries within Minnesota, fees vary.
For visits to schools and/or school libraries outside of Minnesota, fees range from $250 to $500, plus expenses, per school, with a limit of three presentations per day.
