Over 100 schools visited this year!I can't wait to visit you

Grades PK-2


My presentation is WAY more than just a book reading!!! I offer a unique presentation that encourages audience participation with games, songs and Q&A  along with an interactive reading of Chicken Lips!  I hope to help foster a love of reading, writing and music! 

Grades 3-6


With this age group I offer a very engaging presentation that details out all the steps it took me to create 'Chicken Lips'! We discuss the writing & illustration process, talk about the importance of small details and perseverance and have a Q & A session.  We also discuss the different careers I encountered throughout the publication process.  

Virtual Visits


Virtual visits are offered for 3rd-6th grades.  We discuss the publication process  in a very interactive format.  This is good for groups of 50 or less.
