Author Visits

(fighting bullying one novel –– and one event –– at a time)

I welcome opportunities to visit schools, libraries, organizations, and book clubs (in person, by phone, or via Skype) to discuss CAMP and DANNY’S MOM, the writing process, the road to publication, and my commitment to making our camps and schools safer for everyone. I offer phone and Skype chats to schools and book clubs at no charge.

I’m grateful to all of you who have invited me into your communities –– and I feel blessed that my novels have given me a literal bully pulpit, a platform from which to keep the anti-bullying conversation going so that, in concert with professionals, we will make our camps and schools kinder, gentler places.

I look forward to working with you on a program that will make a difference in your community. So shoot me an email, and let’s talk!
