Author Visits

Being able to connect with readers and writers is such a joy for me. I’d love to visit your school or library, in person or virtually. I’m available for interactive storytimes and presentations, writing workshops, and customized visits. Please contact me with “author visit” in the subject line for more information about my rates and availability. I look forward to hearing from you!

You can see my interactive storytime of The Nian Monster in action here (video courtesy of Mia Wenjen of Pragmatic Mom).
