Upcoming Events

December 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm EDT – A Novel Idea (arrive early!)

Announcing the revival of A Novel Idea as an in-person event!

This event provides an opportunity for you to meet four authors and an illustrator hear about their books and their writing journeys, and ask questions, plus it’s a great opportunity to shop local and dine local! For a leisurely dinner in the dining room before the 7 pm event, please arrive by 6 pm. To purchase food and/or beverages to be served in the private area, please place your order at the bar by 6:30 pm.

I’m honored to be a part of this – one of my few in-person events since my books released (thanks, pandemic)! Please come to Vintage Pizza for this 7 pm event on December 7th. Get there early for the best seats, food, and drink.

No RSVP needed!

February 2, 2022 – All Day! – World Read Aloud Day!

I had so much fun last year at World Read Aloud Day, I’ve decided to make myself fully available for the event again in 2022. Please reach out if you’re interested in having me conduct a free virtual visit with your school / class in early February, 2022.

(If we can’t align for that day, I’m always happy to find a spot on another day, too!)

I’m open to the needs of your class, but barring specific requirements, my read aloud visits typically follow the standard format:

  • 1-2 minutes: Author introduces himself or herself and talks a little about his or her books.
  • 3-5 minutes: Author reads aloud a short picture book, or a short excerpt from a chapter book/novel
  • 5-10  minutes: Author answers a few questions from students about reading/writing
  • 1-2 minutes: Author book-talks a couple books he or she loves (but didn’t write!) as recommendations for the kids
