Previous Events

I enjoy doing presentations for schools, libraries, bookstores, scout troops, etc. In my presentation, I talk about the writing process, the storytelling process, and how to draw experience from real life when telling a story, using my own series as an example. I have done presentations, book signings, and Q&A sessions both in-person and via skype. If you are interested in arranging a presentation, please contact me.
