Author Appearances

Author visits are an awesome way to get students (and adults) excited about reading and writing. Whether in-person or Skype sessions for classrooms, libraries, writing groups, book clubs, etc. I’m available for everything from brief Q&As to full-length workshops. Possible topics include:

The Path to Publication
How Publishing Works
How An Idea Becomes a Book
Conquering Obstacles, or How to Finish Your Book
Writing Believable Dialogue
Creating Memorable Characters
Building Awesome Worlds
Grabbing Readers From the First Line

The following appearances are free:
15-20 minute classroom Skype Q&A (two per month, first come first served)
30-minute Skype Q&A for book clubs or writing groups whose members have purchased a book
A full appearance for schools or libraries purchasing books in bulk for students (travel rates may still apply depending on location). I will sign and personalize each book for students.

For further rates and availability, contact me at

If I’m unable to visit you due to time or location, here is a great resource for finding authors in your state that do school visits – Cool School Visits.
