Speaking Engagement and School Visits — Booking Information

Standard presentations and speaking engagements lasts approximately 60 minutes. Many subjects can be discussed, though generally I speak about how and why I became an awarded Children’s Author, how I do the research for the illustrations, and why the people, places, and animals are featured in my books. There is a questions and answer period for approximately 15 minutes, and then can autograph and personalize books for students, including handing out pre-purchased copies.  This includes meeting and greeting individuals of the organization. 

Schools may purchase my books at a discount price when ordered directly from me using the Discount Order Form for Schools. A copy of the school's Tax Exempt Certificate should accompany the order.  These books may be pre-ordered and will autograph and personalize them for each student. If orders would like to be purchased by the students, the form can be sent home to the attention of the parents.

*Each organization will be quoted dependent on mission, so please reach out.  All engagements must include travel costs.
