Booking an Event: 

I am happy to visit your school, library, bookstore, organization, or book club to talk about Enemies in the Orchard, its historical background, my writing process, and/or navigating the world of publishing. I love to do Q&As, and as a former middle school English teacher, would be happy to lead hands-on writing exercises. 

Simply contact me, and let’s talk about what you need for your students, library, or community. We can work together to create something for just about any budget.
