Past Events

WriteOnCon: On February 9 – 11, I was a presenter at this online children’s writers conference with a blog post and more. Great fun!

World Read Aloud Day 2018: It was so much fun to present to schools during World Read Aloud Day (and a few days beyond) this year. I talked with Lindale Middle School in Maryland, Baker Middle School in Michigan, Richmond Hill Elementary School in Georgia, and Wayne Cox Elementary in Texas. Thank you so much to each of those schools. Your 7th and 3rd grade classes and the whole 5th grade I presented to were fantastic. I loved hearing about the books that students are reading, and their great questions.

Author Talk: I was thrilled to have been invited back to Memorial Middle School in South Portland, Maine, on December 6, 2017, to chat with this year’s 6th graders about what it’s like to be an author. This event included a giveaway of The Mad Wolf’s Daughter ARC to one student in each of the five classes I presented to.
