school presentations

I've had the opportunity to travel to different schools around the country, and I love meeting teachers and students. I have spoken to Grades 4-12 and can adjust my presentation accordingly. 

30 minute presentation, followed by a 15-20 minute Q&A

My presentation focuses on how I fell in love with reading and writing, and couldn't stop telling stories—until I got to middle school. At that point, I was bullied about my writing, and I felt so embarrassed that I gave it up for many years. I tell students how I overcame those fears and rediscovered my voice—and I encourage kids to stick with their passions, despite worries that others might not understand. 


To learn more about my speaking style and how I answer student questions, you can read this essay that I wrote in one of my monthly newsletters. 

If you are interested in having me at your school, I would love to visit! Please email me at for more information on my rates and availability.
