I do lively presentations for grades K-3, at schools, at bookstores and for teacher conferences, discussing my writing and where I get my ideas. I recall when I was in elementary school, how I loved make believe and made up stories all the time and how much I still love to make up stories. I talk about the importance of keeping a journal of writing things down in order not to forget! I read excerpts from my journal and show how everyday events can be transformed into interesting stories. For older students I discuss the revising process, and how I revise and revise until there is nothing else to revise!

autographing, fees and contact information.
